From refugee to employee | Pru's story
I'd like to share with you a video about lovely lady named Pru. She was introduced to Grant Thornton through our partner charity Breaking Barriers, a charity which assists refugees into meaningful employment.
Refugees like Pru flee their home countries in fear for their lives and often at great personal cost. They leave behind their families, friends and livelihoods - relationships which can often define a person's social status.
A former auditor and teacher in her native Zambia, Pru eventually obtained the right to remain in the UK. Due to personal challenges and a lengthy asylum application process, Pru was not able to work for over ten years.
Following a referral from Breaking Barriers and a successful interview, Pru spent six months on placement with our firm's Talent Solutions team in London to support the Cyber Security training programme. To learn more, check out the video below...
