IDPs from ATO area now have an Internet platform for searching housing and jobs. Such opportunity is implemented on the «Restoring Donbas» website, where one can find such sections as «Housing for rent» for Donbas IDPs and «Will rent housing» for potential lessors. Moreover, among the housing proposals there are options of free rent – in exchange for house maintenance or taking care for elderly owners.
Among the proposals of lessors on the «Restoring Donbas» website there are rooms, apartments and houses in Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Nikolaev, Odessa, Chernigov, Cherkassy, Ivano-Frankivsk, and other cities. In addition, the website has Classified Ads of IDPs seeking housing. Some of them are in dire need of assistance – these are single mothers, families with little children, who are in difficult life situations.
For lessors and lessees there is a customized site search of Classified Ads by regions and cities, type of housing and number of rooms, prices and relevance.
Moreover, on the initiative website there is «Employment for IDPs» section («Résumé» and «Job opportunities») among employers’ offers there are: work in the fields of pharmaceuticals, education, real estate, restaurant business, security guard services, working specialties. Territorial coverage of the offered jobs includes Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Zaporozhye, Odessa, Vinnitsa, Lvov, Khmelnytsky, jobs abroad.
Community Initiative “Restoring Donbas” encourages employers not only to place vacancy announcements on the website, but also to pay attention to resumes of the IDPs that are already available on the website. Among them there are resumes of lawyers, accountants, tutors, builders, drivers and others. In the first place, this appeal concerns representatives of Donbas businesses, who have left the ATO area. We’ll remind that according to the expert survey, conducted by “Restoring Donbas” in December 2014 – January 2015, it is employment of fellow-countrymen for displaced people that is the most important option of provision of assistance by entrepreneurs of the region.
Customized search is available to users of the website among vacancies and resumes by fields of activity and education, regions and cities, experience and level of salary. Sorting by the type of employment and relevance of Classified Ads is also available.
Classified Ads on the “Restoring Donbas” website are available for publishing to all displaced persons from the ATO area, who wish to use it, and their potential employers and lessors.
