Supporting Refugees Entering the FM Sector

Soft services provider Churchill Group has made a commitment to supporting refugees living in the United Kingdom by joining the Tent Partnership for Refugees (Tent) network

Tent, which was established to mobilising the global business community to improve the lives and livelihoods of more than 36 million refugees who have been forcibly displaced from their home countries, numbers more than 300 compannies in its network including major international brands, BP, Sysco, and Workday.

As a member, Churchill will hire refugees as employees directly and provide training and mentorship. The company will additionally support refugees throughout the UK by offering a range of activities to help them integrate into the workforce, including providing language and professional skills training where required.

Churchill aims to remove the barriers that refugees may face in entering the FM industry. Churchill can offer a diverse range of opportunities across all levels of its business, irrespective of a person’s previous experience. Many skills that may have been acquired in other industries and sectors are readily transferable to the FM sector. 

HR director, Melanie Taylor, says: “We are passionate about supporting refugees into employment and the transition to life in the UK.

“The Tent network will give us access to other companies, charities and NGOs that can share best practice and help us overcome some of the common barriers to supporting refugees.

“The FM sector has so much to offer refugees and we’re determined to offer all the support we can.”

Gideon Maltz, executive director at the Tent Partnership for Refugees, adds: “Businesses have a unique role. When they hire, train, and invest in refugee talent, they are helping refugees put down roots in their new communities, provide for their families and regain their dignity – at the same time, our workplaces and communities are stronger for it.”
