Odyssea Employability

Employability

Find a job in Greece

Our Employability program enables self reliance and accelerates efforts towards a more inclusive society through employment. We believe that true, long-lasting integration for vulnerable groups can only be achieved when they are assimilated across social, political and economic strands of life. The fastest and most efficient way to do this is through permanent, meaningful employment.

You can register for Employability services without being an Academy graduate. Register via our form below!

We run courses in soft skills that are vital for developing confidence, improving communication and digital skills and finding work. See the courses here.

We have a network of businesses who advertise job opportunities through us. As a member, you’ll be the first to know. Check out some new job opportunities here.

Our Business Incubation Scholarships are designed to help you start your own business in Greece. Find out more here.

Receive support

We help with one-to-one consulting, interview prep and references. We also perform regular follow-ups to check on progress and working conditions.

Unemployment in Greece

It is well-known that the 2009 financial crisis hit Greece hard. Over 10 years later, the country is still struggling economically and has the highest general unemployment rate of all EU states. Sadly, unemployment in Greece is especially prevalent amongst the groups of people that it affects the most: those who need the foot in the door, the financial support and independence, the social interaction and cohesion.

More recently, Greece has been hit by a new crisis. Instability and war in the Middle East and Africa have given rise to one of the largest movements of populations in history, displacing over 5 million people. For a huge number of them, Greece is the first European country they encounter. Many choose to stay; many are forced to do so. Proper access to education, training and the job market is paramount for their livelihood, health and independence, but also crucially for their integration into Greek civic life.

General unemployment rate 0
Youth unemployment rate 0
Female unemployment rate 0
Migrant & refugee unemployment rate 0
We believe that by empowering vulnerable groups through training and employment, we can improve integration and help mend Greece's economy.
