Ukraine Job Coaching

After our successful project Ukraine Job Fair (aka. Care for Ukraine), you will now implement our new project - Ukraine Job Coaching - with co-financing from the ESF. The project is based on four important components that together follow and support the individual throughout their process towards self-sufficiency: Direct individual mentor support, certifying profession-specific and flexible Swedish courses, stress- and trauma-reducing courses in Psychological First Aid and job matching via recruitment events and job coaching. The project is implemented together with the partner New Community and the steering group members Red Cross and War Child.

Meritorious comprehensive support for Ukrainians under the Mass Refugee Directive

What we offer our participants

- Regular mentor meetings to support you through the project and in the labor market.
- GERF certifying occupation-specific Swedish course with certificate
- Direct contact with employers based on your strengths and ambitions
- Tools to deal with integration-related stress
- Training to help you navigate the Swedish labor market
- High pace of work and expected time for completion is about 2-5 months
- Letter of recommendation to employers after completion of the project

Fast track to work


The project starts with a first group information meeting where you will get all the information about the project and answers to your questions. After the information meeting, you will be invited to a first mentoring meeting where you and your mentor will plan your journey through the project based on your ambitions and the line of work you want to focus on.

After you have chosen from our various available vocational language courses based on your career path, you will plan the days you want to attend our face-to-face classes and receive support in planning your homework. Then you plan which days are suitable for further mentoring meetings, which events you want to attend during the project period and which employers we will approach for future job interviews.

Language lessons, lectures, recruitment events, CV writing sessions, training and mentoring sessions will then continue on an ongoing basis for about 2-5 months. If you follow the project through, at the end of this time you will receive a reference from your mentor describing the knowledge you have acquired during the project and emphasizing your strengths and competences for future employers. You will also receive a certificate of your professional language skills which, according to the European tax scale, describes your skills for future employers. Finally, we hope that you will also find employment through our job coaches or our regular job fairs and recruitment events.

Who fits our project and what is required of you?

Our requirements for participants

- Active participation
- Physical or online presence at least 8 times a month
- Basic/moderate knowledge of Swedish
- A signed declaration of intent regarding your intention to participate actively.
- For the Swedish course, homework of at least one hour per week is recommended.
- Participation in at least two of our four activities mentioned above.

Work orientations and flexible arrangements

Is this program for me?

If you plan to participate in our vocational Swedish courses, you will choose a career pathway, which you will then be mentored and job-matched to. There are a limited number of specializations that you can choose from based on our range of courses. The box on the right lists the different vocational courses and specializations that we offer.

As a participant in the project, you are offered to participate in all parts, but you can also choose which parts suit you as long as you actively participate in at least two parts during the project and are either in contact online or in our physical sessions 8 times a month. If none of the orientations we offer on the right suit you, you are welcome to participate in our mentoring program, our labour market training and/or our job matching events and job coaching. The approach is also flexible, so if you are already working, you can, for example, choose to take the Swedish course remotely and receive several mentoring support sessions digitally to secure long-term employment.
