From the end of 2010 in cooperation with its partners HILS has been implementing the project „First Job Counter“ whose aim is to encourage an effective inclusion of persons with disabilities in Croatia to the labor market and increase employment rate of non-active and unemployed young people with physical disability without working experience from 14 to 25 years old in Vukovar-Srijem and Osijek-Baranja County. For the time being we have enabled young people with disabilities for the following provision of services:

  • Design of info-flyers, posters, brochures, visit cards and other promotional materials
  • Market research, how to create a questionnaire and an examinee sample, public opinion surveys, application of research results
  • Implementation of google/facebook campaign, work on advertisement issues, sales, internet promotions
  • Preparation and moderation of media conferences, writing an press releases, presentation of persons/topics
  • Preparation of project proposals, project management.
Companies that have the need for all the above-mentioned services have the opportunity to engage young people with disability who will carry out these services in a quality way and at very favorable prices.

By engaging young people with disabilities you will ensure a quality service and significant saving to your company, and young people with disabilities will get the opportunity to gain working experience and an evidence that they are able to compete with their knowledge and skills in the labor market.

In order to engage a young person with disability, please contact the civil society organization Preokret at the following telephone numbers: 092/305-0834, 092/305-0834 or at the E-mail address: Coordinator of Preokret will find a person who is going to satisfy your needs for certain services. You can also visit the Preokret premises at the address Nikole Andrića 11 in Vukovar and get more detailed information on all the advantages for engaging persons with disabilities.
