New guidance issued for businesses offering work to people from Ukraine
The government published new guidance for businesses offering work to people from Ukraine on 6 May 2022.
The guidance states that businesses offering employment opportunities to people arriving in the UK from Ukraine should complete a vacancy information questionnaire and return it to a specified Home Office email address. The business will then be contacted by the National Employer and Partnership Team at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) within five working days. Job opportunities will then be shared across the DWP Jobcentre Plus network and with the Refugee Employment Network (REN).
Ukrainians who hold professional qualifications may need those qualifications to be recognised in the UK if they work in a regulated profession. The UK Centre for Professional Qualifications provides a free service which explains whether a profession is regulated together with any entry requirements.
People arriving in the UK under the Ukraine Family Scheme, or the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme (Homes for Ukraine) will be granted leave to remain in the UK for 3 years. They can live here, work here, and access benefits and public services.
