Job advice charity provides a useful Resource to newly-arrived Israelis

Israelis are given advice on work visas, CVs and job contracts


In response to the emergency situation in Israel, a Jewish employability charity has been offering tips to Israelis new to the UK on how to get a job.

Resource in Finchley, north-west London hosted over 30 Israelis, who heard from experts in HR and immigration law.

Victoria Sterman, the CEO of Resource said: “We were so pleased to run this informative workshop and help Israelis navigate their way through the UK employment market in one of the most challenging of times.”

She said that the organisation had helped address “pressing questions such as ‘Can I work in the UK?,’ ‘What kind of accommodation might be available?’, How do I go about finding employment? and ‘What should a contract of employment look like?’” 

Sterman said that the attendees had  “left the two-hour session with a better understanding of the employment culture in the UK, useful sources of help such as Citizens Advice Bureau, HMRC and ACAS, plus Facebook groups to use such as Helping Israelis in the UK and details of immigration lawyers who could possibly help”.  

One of the attendees said afterwards: “I’d like to deeply thank [Resource] for the meeting today. It was enlightening and very important. It meant a lot to all of us.”

Resource, set up in 1992, currently supports  1,000 people a year.
