This study is concerned with the job progression opportunities that are available to refugees and people with humanitarian leave.

We know much more about the experiences of these groups when it comes to entering the workforce than we do about their onward trajectories once they’re in work. A focus on their continued development in the workplace is vital to ensure that they can be supported to move closer towards their personal and professional goals and achieve their potential.

We want to see that refugees and people with humanitarian leave are given the tools and the boost they need to move from surviving to thriving – this is better for the individuals themselves, their families and communities, and wider society.
