After their initial adaptation in our country, refugees need socio-economic integration, with finding a job being a top priority. Refugees forced to leave their homes bring with them valuable skills, talents and experience to their new communities. However, they often face obstacles in finding employment. That is why the Foundation for Access to Rights - FAR, in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees - UNHCR, created the Refugee Employment Platform - 

At EMPLOYMENT.REFUGEELIGHT.BG refugees and employers can easily meet. If you are a refugee looking for a job, fill in our form and our team will direct you to suitable positions. 

For employers, our platform offers access to an extensive database of qualified candidates. We post your job ads on the platform and social media and help you find the perfect candidate for your business.

The platform, however, is not just a job listing board! It also provides valuable resources, articles, professional development opportunities and active communities on social media. Alongside this, FAR can assist with any legal issues that may arise when employing refugees in Bulgaria.


We strive to provide refugees, asylum seekers and migrants with the support and tools they need to thrive in their new home. 


The Foundation for Access to Rights - FAR has many years of experience in providing legal assistance to asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in Bulgaria and therefore has valuable practical insight in this area.
