Employers needed

Arrive Ministries is always looking for employers who are willing to hire refugees. Refugees come to the U.S. with varying levels of education (from GED equivalency to advanced degrees) and with varying English-speaking abilities. They come to Minnesota with a legal status that allows them to work in the U.S. as soon as they arrive in the country.

Arrive Ministries operates a Refugee Employment Services department. We attempt to place refugees in appropriate jobs. Our employment counselors contact potential employers to build relationships and explain how we support refugees even after they have found employment. Our goal is to successfully place refugees in jobs in their new community.

We provide metro-area employers with hard-working, pre-screened, work authorized candidates at no cost to the employer. They are all international refugees who have received permanent work authorization in the United States. Our clients have a variety of skills and abilities, are positive, ready-to-work, and dependable.

We work with a variety of companies and staffing agencies to place qualified candidates in jobs. Hiring through Arrive Ministries Refugee Employment Services is easy.
