The Regional Labour Office in Krakow is implementing the project "Come back with POWER! Each participant will receive the help of a career adviser and consultant who will support them in various matters, from dealing with issues in offices to translating documents and legal assistance.
The first inhabitants of the districts brzeski, krakowski, limanowski, myślenicki, olkuski, proszowicki, tarnowski, wadowicki, wielicki and Krakow and Tarnów have already benefited from the assistance offered by the project.
Małopolska supports young people in entering the labour market. Also those who at some point decided to go abroad to work. Today we encourage them to return and offer concrete help in planning their lives, both professional and family, in our region - informs Tomasz Urynowicz, Deputy Marshal of the Małopolska Region.
The project "Come back with POWER! is financed by the European Social Fund. It started in June this year and will last for two more years. It is addressed to people in their thirties, with a minimum six-month stay abroad. If someone is already working, but wants to develop in a different direction, they can take advantage of the offer for six months after returning to Poland. If they do not work, then for a year. - The idea for the project came from signals from young people, their parents and friends. They pointed out that those returning from abroad often feel lost at first sight. The project is supposed to support them in the first months after they return home. Each participant gets a personal consultant who helps them to deal with a number of issues related to finding a job in Poland,' explains Jan Gąsienica-Walczak, director of the Regional Labour Office in Krakow.
The consultant helps from start to finish participating in the project. Thanks to him the client does not feel lost, he can talk about his doubts and ideas, ask for help. The project participants also meet with a career counsellor, suggesting the direction in which it is worthwhile to develop and agree on a professional plan together. Participation in the project also allows you to take advantage of training grants. The Regional Labour Office has prepared free legal and tax advice, translations of documents from abroad and creative workshops for participants.
The project is implemented as part of the Knowledge and Development Education Operational Programme, co-financed by the European Social Fund, state budget and own contribution.
