is a social enterprise, envisioning a society of zero exclusion and zero residual products. We are a not-for-profit organization, created to support female migrants and female refugees and help them align their skills with the Swedish job market.
As a social, work-integration company, Circular Centre believes in the inherent power and willingness of all people to take responsibility. We strive to increase inclusion in the labor market, so that more people get the chance to have a meaningful existence. That is why we create job opportunities for women who find it most difficult to enter the labor market, a process that can take many years for refugees and their relatives.
We believe that all people have the potential to become employees and be able to do a good job – they just need the right help. This is precisely the necessary assistance that we want to provide. Through this, more women should be able to have a sense of belonging in the society and reach their goal of having a job that they enjoy.
Circular Centre develops training programs based on the principles of circular economy, in partnership with several industries, while it has developed methods for creating low skilled positions in collaboration with public and private actors, both locally and nationwide.
