Laurence’s experience of working at the Refugee Council

Employment Adviser, Integration Team

I started with the Refugee Council as a volunteer in 2016 where it my role to support clients to improve their employability skills. I had previously worked in care services for adults with autism and learning disabilities. I had also worked in employment support for unpaid family carers.

In 2018, I took up the post of Employment Adviser with Refugee Council. My role involves working with refugees to make steps towards their short and long term employment goals through 1:1 advice sessions and group work.

Our clients come with a huge amount talent, experience and skills – it’s great to be able to support them to reach their goals and restart their careers!
