- Example : We met Ion, a young man of 25, who is of Romanian nationality and lives in a small community of Romanian people in a substandard housing, on a precarious camp on the Isle de Nantes. He is looking for a job as a delivery driver in FRANCE, or a versatile assistant for elderly persons or persons with mental or psychological disabilities. He speaks Romanian, Italian and French. He is hardworking, accommodating, dedicated, conscientious and attentive. He has a B driver’s licence and a car. Our Association, which met him, supports his CV and his application form.
