Workeer is Germany’s biggest online job board tailor-made for refugees and employers. On workeer.de refugees, interested employers and supportive initiatives can get in touch with each other and find the jobs, skills and assistance they need. Workeer provides a free and easy way for them to connect.
We are convinced that employment is a key factor to successful integration as it helps in the learning of a foreign language and facilitates social contacts between refugees and members of the host society, recognizing that integration is a two-way process. However, refugees face multiple obstacles in their job search, such as the lack of a professional network, the missing knowledge about application processes and the missing hardware or software to create CVs. Workeer addresses these issue by offering an easy way for refugees to set up a profile to present themselves to employers and get in touch with them about the offered positions ranging from internships and vocational trainings to full time jobs in all sectors.
The current statistics show Workeers success among the main target groups: 150.000 people have visited the page over the past year, 2.300 employers and 3.000 refugees created public profiles. More than 4.000 open positions were offered and many success stories of refugees who already found a job through Workeer are proof for the efficiency of our platform.
Giving refugees a fair chance to find a job means giving them a chance to live a self determined life to find their place in their new home.
With that mission in mind we constantly improve the platforms features and interface, actively look for new partners and of course try to reach as many job seekers, employers and initiatives to connect them on Workeer.
In the end we believe that our engagement leads to a win-win-situation for everyone. The refugees, the employers and after all our society as a whole.
