NewBees believes in talent.
NewBees believes in talent. In a society where everyone gets the chance to use talent. Wherever you come from. Because we believe that every talent is unique. That everyone can contribute to our society on the basis of talent and equality.
NewBees prepares newcomers, refugees, for a job: for a place in society. We match newcomers to traineeships with local entrepreneurs and organizations, where talent and equality are key. We have developed a unique methodology and online matching platform and combine smart technology with social contact, so that we are always close by.
We bring people together every day, with the dedication and commitment of our diverse network.
It is the people who make NewBees into a success. Our matchmakers are the link between newcomers and local organizations. The matchmakers always operate in equivalent duos: a talented newcomer and a local goal-getter. We combine the best of two worlds and we link knowledge and networks to each other to make matches that really matter. Which improve the well-being of newcomers.
