"Europe is currently facing an unprecedented displacement crisis. People are fleeing their homes due to conflicts in other parts of the world and those arriving in the UK are facing further challenges - they often do not have sufficient UK work experience and language skills to be able to secure a permanent and meaningful role. 

Arcadis is working with Transitions, who help skilled people with refugee status to find work. Our goal is to give them the experience and opportunities that they need.

It’s been an incredibly challenging but eye-opening experience and something I am proud to be involved in. Ten new Arcadians joined us in August 2016 on a traineeship programme, with the overall goal of securing relevant permanent employment. I am looking forward to seeing how our new colleagues progress and to what is next."
