Poland is one of those countries that has hospitably received many IDPs from Ukraine. On March 9, 2022, the Sejm of the Republic of Poland passed the Law on Assistance to the Citizens of Ukraine in connection with the Russian invasion. It is this law that regulates the legality of Ukrainians' stay in Poland and their employment.

It is difficult to find highly qualified workers in any industry in Poland today. There has been a shortage of labor in various spheres and industries for a long time. In Poland, people who have temporarily moved here because of the war in Ukraine can get the following job. 

The first place is occupied by seasonal work, which includes vacancies in the following areas:

• agriculture - harvesters, fruit canning;

• tourism business - work in hotels, on cruise ships;
