Our partnership with Talent Beyond Boundaries & what they do

TBB is a global not-for-profit organisation that focuses on unlocking skilled migration pathways for refugees. They have offices in Jordan and Lebanon where they work directly with displaced people, and a presence in the UK, US, Canada, and Australia. In addition, team members are located in the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America. TBB are also expanding to other source and destination countries.  It’s a brilliant way of helping to tackle not only the shortage of skilled labour in the UK, but also a major humanitarian crisis around the globe.

Talent Beyond Boundaries works with employers in both the public and private sectors to place refugees in employment.  TBB will recommend Situ as its preferred partner to discuss immediate accommodation requirements for refugees as they arrive to commence work.  The Situ team will then in turn work with accredited ASAP members to secure appropriate accommodation on the best commercial terms.

Our contact at TBB, Holly Asquith (a very inspiring individual), says, “It’s essential that we have a trusted accommodation partner who we know has the safety and comfort of our arriving refugees and forcibly displaced people as a priority. They need to be able to settle quickly into their new surroundings, have somewhere that feels like a home and a reassuring base from which to start their new lives and careers. Situ and the wider ASAP membership can clearly offer what we are looking for, and we feel thrilled to have their expertise and support behind us.”
