Amey has partnered with Renaisi to create work placements for five refugee professionals in Amey Consulting’s Advisory & Analytics business
The refugee professionals will take up a 6-month paid placement at Amey, with support from a Renaisi advisor, to showcase their talent.
All candidates have full permission to work in the UK and are specialists in their fields of engineering, architecture, and business services.
Permanent positions will be offered
Where possible, Amey will offer permanent roles to the successful candidates on completion of their placements. In 2021 90% of candidates were offered permanent positions.
Hannah Brooke, Renaisi’s employer engagement manager said: “Working with Amey to set up a refugee placement programme has been an incredibly positive experience. We hope that this partnership will encourage more organisations to realise the value they can gain from setting up a refugee placement scheme.”
‘Amey can play a vital role in supporting refugees to settle and live well in the UK’
Laura Simarro, people director at Amey Consulting said: “As one of the UK’s leading engineering consultancies, Amey Consulting can play a vital role in supporting refugees to settle and live well in the UK, through offering meaningful, high skilled career opportunities.
“Refugees bring with them a wealth of diverse experience and perspectives, which is exactly what the UK engineering industry needs if we are to continue to innovate and transform.
“I look forward to welcoming the first five professionals into our business, and hopefully many more thereafter.”
