Co founders, Refugee Talent

When arriving in Australia from Syria on a humanitarian visa, Dacho could speak English, had a master’s degree in web science and 8+ years of work experience. Still, he found it impossible to break into the employment market. He cofounded Refugee Talent with Anna Robson, to help other refugees find jobs in their new home countries. By leveraging online tools, the startup aims to connect refugees with companies who are looking to hire them as statistics show that 85% of refugees remain unemployed within the first five years of their arrival.
