Tarek Mulla will join our team in Melbourne, Australia as a software engineer this week making him the first refugee candidate in the world to relocate for work through the Talent Beyond Boundaries initiative.
Talent Beyond Boundaries (TBB) pairs talented individuals with international job opportunities through engaged employers offering a smart solution to a real need. There are vast numbers of talented refugees who are stuck in places where they cannot legally work, while at the same time, companies around the globe are experiencing skill shortages. By linking refugees with countries and companies that need their skills, TBB is forging a sustainable solution for refugees to rebuild their lives while boosting the global economy.
Commenting on the announcement, IRESS CEO Andrew Walsh said: "I'm proud to be able to say that we're the first company to hire a refugee directly through the Talent Beyond Boundaries initiative and I want us to be the first of many. I'm so confident that this is the right solution to a real problem that we're working with Talent Beyond Boundaries to employ other refugees with the right skills in our other offices. Both myself and the team are looking forward to welcoming Tarek and making him feel at home."
