SAP launches recruitment program for refugees from Ukraine

SAP has created a dedicated recruitment onboarding program with the goal of matching refugees from Ukraine with vacancies across its network of global offices.

The initiative aims to attract, match and retain qualified refugees from Ukraine with suitable job opportunities at SAP in Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland and Slovakia.

As part of the program, SAP has launched a dedicated online landing page to highlight relevant vacancies to refugees from Ukraine, answer frequently asked questions and provide the possibility to register interest in a special talent pool without uploading all relevant documents. This is to make the recruitment process as fast and as easy as possible for applicants.

Available roles include software engineering, sales, presales, consulting and support functions, such as HR and finance. Fixed contract opportunities and part-time job sharing in Germany are also possible.

If offered a role, Ukrainian employees who have been displaced by the ongoing conflict will benefit from a host of services. They include buddy support with a fellow Ukrainian employee, mental health support, dedicated learning and language courses, childcare support (in some countries) and advanced payment options for newly hired talent.

Cawa Younosi, project leader and head of people in Germany at SAP, said: “All SAP employees around the world have been saddened by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and are increasingly seeking ways to help. We have lots of vacancies that will match the skills of some of those fleeing the tragedy. By doing what we can to accelerate the recruitment process, we can begin to offer these people security and support as part of the SAP family.”
