The Adecco Group is the world’s leading talent advisory and solutions company. We believe in making the future work for everyone, and every day enable more than 3.5 million careers. We skill, develop and hire talent in around 60 countries, enabling organisations to embrace the future of work. The world is shocked and saddened by the news of the escalation in Ukraine. While we don’t have any direct operations in Russia or Ukraine, we do have many Ukrainian and Russian colleagues and associates working with the Group. We will do everything possible to support all colleagues, associates and customers impacted by the crisis, whatever their nationality.
Why are we doing this? For more than a decade, we have worked to enable people displaced by conflict to re-enter the world of work in their host countries. Finding work and meaningful employment is critical to enabling refugees financial stability and their ability to begin new lives.
How does it work? The jobs for Ukraine platform is a free-to-post platform for any company looking to offer opportunities for displaced workers. An Adecco expert team of Ukrainian and English speakers is dedicated to support candidates and connect them with companies.
This platform is created as a solidarity initiative and not a classic commercial job board. Our aim is to help people and companies get in contact quickly, and not to do a full recruitment process. This service will have no cost for companies. And Adecco will never charge candidates for finding jobs Companies interested should apply through the platform. Our team will verify the companies and jobs posted before they are published on the site.

On the institutional front, we have activated the World Employment Confederation to support the Industry Federations in the countries in the region. We have also reached out to the Directors of the Global UN Agencies most immediately affected to pledge support. These include: the IOM (International Organisation of Migration), the UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees) and the ILO (International Labour Organisation). Being established in most of the countries west of Ukraine, we are exploring ways we can aid humanitarian organisations as they respond to the rapidly-evolving situation on the borders of Ukraine. Once refugee relatives of our associates have settled, we are investigating initiatives to provide employment opportunities through the solutions that Adecco, LHH and Akkodis provide, including training and up-skilling. Our outreach also extends to clients as we explore ways where we can jointly help. Across the Group we continue to support displaced people from previous and ongoing crises - including Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan - to enter the labour market, particularly in the U.K., Germany, France, Italy and Greece.
