Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said this in an interview with the TV channel “We Ukraine”.

She said that job centers should be the primary resource in job searching.

“These government organizations are currently reforming their work. It shouldn’t be where someone simply comes in, checks the box for payment, and then acts like they’re looking for a job. “The employment center makes it look like they are helping. This will not continue. They are trying to reform, and people are getting more and more trust in these institutions,” the official added.

A good example is getting vouchers for retraining.  More than 16 thousand of our fellow Americans have already benefitted from this opportunity. Approximately 3,500 among them are individuals who have been forced to flee their homes. They underwent training in new fields, such as psychology, information technology, and others.

“There are a total of 138 specialties that IDPs can train for to get a higher paying job,” stated Iryna Vereshchuk.

Furthermore, advisory and consultative Coordination Centers for Civilian Support have been set up at both the Regional Military Administration and the Kyiv City Military Administration.

“I am urging our global partners to support the hiring of IDPs. frontline areas. Large factories and plants are unnecessary there. Instead, we should create mini-business projects that offer employment opportunities to working-age men and women. The state intends to endorse innovative measures for IDPs’ employment, as their numbers are set to increase,” remarked the Vice Prime Minister.
