Amazon, Hilton and Pepsi to hire thousands of refugees in Europe

Amazon has pledged to hire 5,000 Ukrainian and other refugees in Europe as part of a wider drive to help people fleeing persecution. Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the number of Ukrainian refugees living in Europe stands at more than 5.9 million. The Tent Partnership for Refugees charity, which is co-ordinating the efforts, said most of the Ukrainian refugees in Europe were women and faced particular hurdles when finding jobs. Under its initiative, big firms including Amazon, Hilton and Marriott have committed to hire 13,680 Ukrainians and other refugees for their workforce over the next three years. Amazon has already committed to hiring at least 5,000 refugees in the US by the end of 2024 under its Welcome Door programme.
