I know how it feels to be in ‘survival’ jobs that do not define who you are. I know how it feels having to keep your spirits up and to hope that one day someone will recognise your talent and you can finally add your value to society.
After 10 years as an immigrant in the UK, I believe that change is needed to expose employers to the rich pool of professional talent contained within the immigrant and refugee population in the UK. Globally Onward is that change. An organisation that can bring employers and professional immigrants and refugees together to meet each other’s needs.
