Our initiative, Level Up, supports refugees and asylum seekers training for careers in the European job market. It aims to provide focused training and help connect ambitious professionals with employers. In partnership with leading education providers, students get free e-learning, mentoring, career advice and introductions to potential employers.
Zarits has partnered with Code Institute and Digital Marketing Institute to help re-skill European-based refugees and asylum seekers. This year, Level Up provides eighteen highly motivated asylum seekers and refugees the opportunity to reskill and become Full Stack Developers or Digital Marketing Professionals. In its 3rd year, the initiative has supported 22 refugees and placed them in tech roles with global employers such as HubSpot, Starwood Hotels and Ericsson.
