Latest research has found that as many as 80% of UK firms would hire a Ukrainian refugee if they were given the opportunity to do so.
The Reed.co.uk report shows that the majority of UK businesses are enthusiastic when it comes to hiring Ukraine refugees. For example, six in ten hiring managers believe that the government should make it easier for them to enter the UK, and 71% agree that Ukrainian workers could help with the current labour shortage situation.
James Reed, Chairman of Reed.co.uk, commented, “If Ukrainian refugees are to settle in the UK successfully, finding them employment will be the crucial next step to fully integrating them into society for the period that they remain here.
Reed added, “It’s encouraging to see such a positive response to this refugee crisis from UK employers. The majority are enthusiastic about the prospect of hiring Ukrainian workers and have identified a range of benefits they can bring to the UK workforce.
“There are currently record job opportunities across the UK labour market covering a wide range of sectors. At Reed.co.uk there are over 300,000 live vacancies and capable applicants are always very welcome.”
