Polish companies to feature at job fair in London

Major Polish companies will present their offers at a job fair in London this Sunday, Bartłomiej Kowalczyk from Polish Business Link told Poland IN.

The job fair, organised by the Polish government in London this Sunday, aims to encourage Poles living in the UK to return to their home country.

Entrepreneurship and Technology Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz emphasised that the event is targeted predominantly at the youngest generation of Poles in the UK. “Our offers are prepared mostly for those who either came to the UK to study and for the children of those who emigrated in the 1990s and who do not really follow the economic situation in Poland and are not aware of job opportunities there,” she said.

Minister Emilewicz noted that the many unknowns still related to Brexit might influence Poles’ decisions. "Poles living in the UK may be worried how their work and living conditions will look [after Brexit-- ed.]. Meanwhile, the condition of the Polish market is the best for years and the Polish economy is developing the fastest in Europe,” she stated.

The London job fair is prepared jointly by the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, Entrepreneurship and Technology Ministry, and Family, Labour and Social Policy Ministry. It will feature Poland’s State Treasury companies as well as international enterprises employing workers in Poland. Present at the fair will be Orlen, Polpharma, Asseco, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, Johnson & Johnson, and others.

The event will take place in the Queen Elizabeth II Centre this Sunday, May 12.
