Date: November 2023

Country: Belgium, Ireland, Portugal, UK

Type of legal pathway: Labor mobility

Language: English

Description: DT4E sets the foundations for an innovative legal labour pathway for refugees and displaced talent by enabling people in need of international protection in Jordan and Lebanon to connect with employers in Europe and sustainably integrate into the labour market in Belgium, as well as in Ireland, Portugal, and the United Kingdom.

In doing so, DT4E provides employers with access to an untapped international talent pool of more than 65.000 profiles. These talents not only bring competences to the table, but also unique perspectives, diverse experiences, and a strong work ethic. Moreover, this skilled mobility pathway is driven by employers’ needs and is therefore relevant to all sectors that are short in labour.
