Amey partnership creates opportunities for refugee professionals
Together Renaisi and Amey have created paid work placements for five refugee professionals in Amey Consulting’s Advisory & Analytics business.
Refugees are forced to relocate from their home countries due to war, violence, conflict, or persecution. Arriving in the UK can mean a continuation of hardship, often becoming long-term unemployed or having to take low-skilled work opportunities.
Refugee professionals also represent a largely untapped pool of talent that can bridge current skills gaps and increase diversity in organisations. Leading infrastructure services and engineering company, Amey has partnered with Renaisi to access the skills of refugee professionals using our Transitions service.
Together, Amey and Renaisi have created placements for five refugee professionals in Amey Consulting’s Advisory & Analytics business. Each professional will take up a 6-month paid placement at Amey, with support from a Renaisi advisor.
All candidates have full permission to work in the UK and are specialists in their fields of engineering, architecture, and business services. The placements are a way for candidates to showcase their talent – and deliver real business value from day one.
In 2021 90% of Transitions candidates were offered permanent positions after their placements.
Amey will wherever possible, offer permanent roles to the successful candidates on completion of their placements.
Renaisi and Amey Consulting have worked together to co-design a placement programme that aligns with existing recruitment practices and adjusts the process to make it inclusive for refugees.
