The Federal Employment Agency has set up a special telephone hotline for refugees from Ukraine. Counseling specialists there provide refugees with information on seeking employment and training in Ukrainian and Russian:
The hotline is available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays.
The service is aimed at people interested in taking up a job or training, such as for the recognition of foreign school and vocational qualifications and language courses.
*The call is not toll-free. There are charges for a call to the German fixed network. The establishment of a toll-free hotline is technically not possible, since with phones equipped with a Ukrainian mobile phone contract, no 0800 number can be dialed.
