How to employ people from Ukraine

The Welsh Government supports the employment of people who have been displaced from Ukraine following the Russian invasion. Access to employment is important for people from Ukraine in building new lives in Wales. Employing people from Ukraine also provides employers in Wales with access to talent, skills, and experience to support their organisations.

People arriving from Ukraine under the Homes for Ukraine Scheme and the Ukraine Family Scheme can work and access benefits in the UK for the duration of their visa. Other people from Ukraine in Wales may have a different legal status. Please see information about viewing a job applicant’s right to work details.

If you wish to recruit people from Ukraine, please register your interest with the Welsh Government. You can also register your interest with the UK Government.

If you wish to support people from Ukraine seeking employment, the Working Wales service can provide personalised expert careers advice and employment support. It is a free service available to anyone aged 16 and over and living in Wales.
