The much-loved UPPNÅ Employability programme is a partnership between IKEA Cardiff and our Education & Employability Team helping refugees rebuild their lives in Wales. The Programme involves a series of employability workshops at our Cardiff Offices as well as a guided tour of the IKEA store in Cardiff Bay. Following the tour, everyone will be interviewed by the IKEA People & Culture team and if you are lucky, you will be chosen for an 8-week placement at the store in March
