Can you support Operation Warm Welcome?
'Operation Warm Welcome' is the Government’s programme to settle people who have arrived in the UK as a result of the evacuation of Afghanistan. As part of this programme the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is working alongside other government departments, employers, and organisations to find work and permanent housing for these arrivals and to help them integrate into UK life.
With the shortage of staff in the hospitality and tourism sector, the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) would like to highlight the matching service that DWP is providing to link these arrivals with job opportunities within the industry.
There is a wide range of people with different levels of skills, experience, language ability and personal circumstances. The matching process helps connect employers and other organisations to DWP, who can then offer opportunities for training or jobs for Afghan citizens resettling in the UK.
If you have any potential employment opportunities, please contact DWP by emailing [email protected]
It would be helpful if your email includes the following details:
- Job title and job description
- Number of roles available
- An outline of the application process required
- Level of English language requirement
- If a driver’s license is required
- If accommodation is included
If you do use this service, please let us know by emailing [email protected] so we can ensure that uptake is tracked by industry. This scheme has been shared with us by our partners at the Tourism Alliance.
