Jobbrücke PLUS – “Integration of Asylum Seekers and Refugees into Work and Training for Saxony-Anhalt”.

We support people with experience of fleeing in their sustainable integration into the labour market. We are committed to ensuring that refugees in Saxony-Anhalt are able to build long-term employment prospects in line with their expectations and to have access to the resources they need to do so.

The Jobbrücke PLUS project in Saxony-Anhalt is a joint project of AWO SPI gGmbH, the International Federation and the Refugee Council Saxony-Anhalt, that is coordinated by AWO SPI gGmbH and operates in cooperation with strategic partners. The Jobbrücke PLUS project network is funded by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the European Social Fund within the framework of the Federal ESF Integration Guideline in the focus/priority area "Integration of Asylum Seekers and Refugees (IvAF)"
