Trade association: Retail chains ready to employ refugees

Hungary's retail chains hit by a labour shortage are "open to employing refugees" from Ukraine, the head of the National Trade Association said on Thursday.

Gyorgy Vamos said his association was in contact with charity organisations receiving refugees, and anyone seeking jobs would be informed about vacant positions.

Tesco said earlier that refugees planning to stay in Hungary were welcome to take up employment. Tesco currently has 385 jobs to offer Hungarian speakers. Auchan, another supermarket, told MTI the company was in the process of drawing up employment criteria for refugees.
