In collaboration with Stichting Leer Helpt! we organize a Werkmarkt. The purpose of this Werkmarkt is to help people from the Amsterdam region who are (language) behind the labor market to find a job.
As a co-signer of the Amsterdam Covenant works for everyone, we know how important it is that people participate in society and that work and education play a key role in this. But we also know that too many people are still on the sidelines because they do not yet have a good command of the Dutch language and culture.
With this Werkmarkt we want to help non-native speakers of Amsterdam who have difficulty participating in society. Because of their language deficiency, non-native speakers regularly have a lack of knowledge and self-confidence to find suitable work. Foreign speakers state that they would like to work, but that they have difficulty finding suitable vacancies. This can be a reason not to work and therefore stands in the way of social participation. However, social participation in the form of work or another form of daytime activities is important because it improves people's health perception and well-being and because it contributes to the social cohesion and liveability of Amsterdam.
The Werkmarkt will take place in Osdorp, in the New West district on 23 in May 2019.
At the Werkmarkt, non-native speakers of Amsterdam can gain inspiration for their careers, work on their self-confidence and come into contact with companies and organizations that can help them directly in their search for (paid) work.
We offer the following activities:
Workshops: pitch yourself, use Social Media, make a resume, ONA
Work market with information stands
Speed date with potential employers
Activities: CV check, career selection test, portrait photographer
