In partnership with the Council, Renaisi will pilot the programme dedicated to supporting Ukrainian refugees living in the borough of Hackney to find employment opportunities, while enhancing their English language skills.

We aim to empower participants to build a successful future in their new Hackney home. We offer a range of services tailored to the needs of participants.

One-to-one employment support:

We recognise that each person’s journey is unique, and we are here to help individuals access tailored job opportunities and develop their career paths. Our experienced staff will provide high-quality advice, coaching, and guidance to equip participants with essential job search techniques. From crafting an impressive CV to mastering interview skills, we will boost participants’ confidence and improve their career prospects.

Weekly ESOL conversation sessions:

Virtual sessions will help participants enhance their English language skills through engaging conversations. We cover a wide range of topics, including employability, to help participants become proficient in English to excel in the UK job market.

Weekly integration clubs:

Participants can join in-person clubs to socialise, learn, and have some fun. Integration clubs provide an opportunity to connect with others, form friendships, and expand networks. Outings will make the experience even more enjoyable.

Through a blended approach of in-person and virtual sessions, we ensure flexible learning and support to fit participants’ schedules.
