REY Europe is a Social Enterprise and not-for-profit organisation based in central London. Since 2009 we have been delivering a range of projects related to employment, training and the provision of work based learning/work experience opportunities.
In general our projects aim to create opportunities to fill emerging skills gaps across a variety of sectors, providing direct support to unemployed people and facilitating work placement opportunities in both Europe and the UK to increase the skills sets amongst project participants.
Additionally we are involved in wider strategic work to identify and respond to the development of skills gaps and projected areas of economic growth. We actively pursue projects to support those from the most disadvantaged backgrounds.
