Majority of Ukrainian Refugees in Poland Found a Job
The majority of working-age Ukrainians found employment in Poland, more than half of them within the first three months of their stay, the Warsaw Business Journal reports, citing news agency PAP.
Almost one in three has already changed employer. As much as 82% of adult refugees from Ukraine took up a job in Poland, and among people of working age, this percentage reaches 84%, the latest survey of the employment agency Migration Platform EWL showed.
More than half of adult refugees (56%) found employment in the first three months of their stay, although only 8% of them had previously visited Poland for work or business purposes.
"Such a high level of employment among Ukrainian refugees already in the first months of their stay in Poland proves not only their determination in the context of taking up work, but also the openness of Polish entrepreneurs to new employees," said Andrzej Korkus, president of EWL Migration Platform.
