Ukrainian refugees welcome at JJ Foodservice

JJ Foodservice is offering support to Ukrainian refugees and families who may be arriving in the UK in the coming months.

The foodservice wholesaler is working with local councils across the nation to highlight a wide range of positions at its 11 UK branches.

As many as 200,00o Ukrainian refugees could arrive in Britain as the government extends its help to support more than half a million people who have been displaced due to Russia’s invasion of the country.

“As a nationwide foodservice company – our business never sleeps and we’re always looking for more people to join our team,” said HR Manager, Joanna Florczak.

“We understand that candidates from overseas may have limited UK-accredited qualifications and might need help with re-training.”

JJ Foodservice has also co-signed a petition from Refugee Action to lift the ban that is stopping asylum seekers from being allowed to work in the UK.

And with the wholesaler offering full-time and part-time work with long-term career prospects, Florczak hopes JJ can do their bit to help.

“We aspire to be an inclusive, refugee friendly business,” she added. “That means our goal is to make every member of the JJ team feel accepted, comfortable, and able to share their ideas regardless of where they have come from or their personal circumstances.”
