Labour Market Integration Modules
Access Fast Track is our response to the Ukrainian crisis, but is open to a wider group of talented people. It is a Labour Market Orientation to increase employability and facilitate social and economic inclusion of high-skilled job seekers with refugee and migrant background in Switzerland.
Our corporate partners (so far UBS and J&J) are participating as coaches to address the challenges faced by job seekers and to connect the untapped migrant and refugee talent pool with companies looking to diversify their workforce.
- The bilingual (D/E) Fast Track Access Modules are designed to support refugees and migrants in finding employment at their qualifications level, and
- thus enable effective integration and use of their advanced skills in the Swiss job market.
The Access Fast Track Modules are based on the insights of the pilot of the Access Programme that ended in May 2022. The compact modules are aimed at recently arrived professionals who are starting their jobsearch in Switzerland, as well as at those looking for a job for a longer period who would like to review and improve their jobsearch strategies. They focus on the job application process and networking. Access Fast Track participants will get information on a variety of tools to assess their professional background, identify the right career opportunities and better position their talent and skills in the Swiss job market. In addition to the series of modules and active peer support, each participant will work with one dedicated Talent Coach.
PARTICIPATION CRITERIA :
- Migrant and/or refugee background (we particularly encourage applications by candidates coming from locations at risk of a humanitarian disaster or from non-EU/non-EFTA countries)
- Higher Education Degree, BA University Degree or higher
- At least 3-5 years of work experience
- At least B2 level German or English language skills
- Commitment to participate to all workshops and the development/ implementation of an effective job search strategy
By the end of the Access Fast Track Modules, participants will be able to optimize their job search and extend their local professional network.
Becoming a part of the Capacity community, the participants have the chance to practice their professional introduction and make new professional connections.
