Refugees are given a safe place to live but many employers aren’t sure whether refugees are allowed to work or how to respond if they apply for a job.

Transitions is a London-based social enterprise that works in a collaborative, user-led way to match employers and refugee professionals. This enabled a marine scientist to work with Blue Ventures in Madagascar.

Blue Ventures is an award-winning social enterprise that works with local communities to conserve threatened marine and coastal environments, both protecting biodiversity and alleviating poverty. Blue Ventures' business models include ecotourism, sustainable fisheries management, aquaculture and blue carbon.
