Our partner RETENCON has been successfully accompanying and supporting employers of all industries in retention & employer branding for 10 years.

Our joint project New Life for Ukraine is specifically aimed at employers who are willing to support newcomers from Ukraine in building a NEW LIFE, especially professionally.

For this purpose, we provide our platform to the refugee Ukrainians free of charge and invite all employers to publish their employer profiles and get in contact with potential candidates!

Our Russian-speaking consultants support the job-seeking candidates especially in application and integration processes, but also in cultural onboarding at the companies and accompany the first steps of getting to know each other.

Questions and Answers

Ukrainian citizens need the following documents to be allowed to work in Germany:

  1. A residence title (e.g. visa, residence permit, EU Blue Card)
  2. a work permit and
  3. a valid passport.

If you do not have a work permit yet, we can provide you with a non-binding confirmation of employment.
You present this to the responsible foreigners authority, where you will be issued a work permit.

You can also obtain a residence permit from the foreigners authority in the town or municipality where you are staying.
Here you can find out which authority is responsible for your area.
