Launch of new Ukraine Guide

May 18, 2022 9:06 am, Published by , Leave your thoughts

On 24 February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine sending shockwaves around the world and creating a humanitarian crisis. According to UN estimates, by 25 April, more than 5.2 million people had fled the country.

Stronger Together and our partners – the Association of Labour Providers and Responsible Recruitment Toolkit – are today announcing that we have created a straightforward and accessible guide for UK businesses to help in ensuring that workers affected by this conflict are protected from harm, supported in extremely difficult circumstances and have a positive recruitment and employment experience, including:

  • Information on providing support to Ukrainians already in the UK, those looking to enter and people from other affected groups
  • Up to date information on right to work, visa routes and offering work and accommodation
  • Practical steps to ensure responsible recruitment and employment

Practical guide for supporting workers affected by the war in Ukraine

The guide is open-source and available to all.  It is particularly relevant for essential sectors employing large numbers of migrant workers such as food, agriculture, construction and care and although it is written for employers, labour providers and recruiters in the UK, much of its content is transferable to recruitment in other countries, and in other conflicts.

“Working collaboratively with our partner organisations, this guide pools our relevant guidance to provide a practical guide for businesses to respond positively and proactively to the current crisis by supporting affected jobseekers and workers in their business. We encourage businesses to read the guide, apply the good practice steps and share any feedback with us so we can continually improve the resource.”
