Τhe 1st Job Fair for refugees and migrants is quite a sensation!

Alexandros Avramidis

On the 26th and 27nth September, 2019, we are organizing the 1st Job Fair by SolidarityNow Job Fair in Thessaloniki. The Job Fair is a new initiative of the organization, which aims to connect refugees, migrants and asylum seekers with new work contexts and to inform and support Greek employers in order for them to reach refugees and migrants.

People from all over the world,  agencies and businesses in Thessaloniki have the opportunity to meet and talk about labor issues. The festival was organized due to the interest and needs of our beneficiaries. In Solidarity Centers in Athens and Thessaloniki, as well as in the Blue Refugee Center in Thessaloniki, people from various countries are seeking support at the Employability Service, which operates free of charge.

At SolidarityNow we believe that everyone has equal access to the workplace. The Job Festival was the first step this message to be heard and shared. The next goal is this Job Fair to become an institution in the city of Thessaloniki and to be organized in other Greek cities.
