CEHAT initially offered accommodation for Ukrainians who had no place to stay under a refugee scheme but they have now gone a step further in helping those who fled war to rebuild their lives in Spain.

“We want to continue to support those affected by war in these difficult times, so we have taken steps to create job offers in the Spanish hotel sector,” explained Jorge Marichal, the president of CEHAT, which represents some 16,000 hotels across Spain.

He said that there are a whole range of jobs offered within the hotel business providing opportunities for people with all sorts of skills.Ukrainians in Spain can subscribe to this website, where they can receive job offers from the tourist sector.
