Deputy General Manager at İŞKUR

Dr. Varol DUR initiated his professional journey as an Assistant Social Security Specialist at the Social Security Institution in 2005, progressively engaging in pivotal social security reform initiatives. Transitioning to a Social Security Specialist role in 2009, DUR assumed a leadership position in managing outsourced projects, particularly in unregistered employment combat and women’s employment support, while also overseeing international activities.

With a M.A. in European Union studies and M.P.A. in Comparative Social Policies from York University, England, he secured his doctorate from Ankara University in 2019, focusing on the effects of social policies on women and families within welfare state typologies. Following his training in England (2015-2017), DUR joined the Türkiye Office of the International Labor Organization, serving as a Social Protection Specialist and Project Manager for formal employment transition, migrant workers, and social security.

Since October 2022, he has been Deputy General Manager at İŞKUR. DUR’s extensive contributions extend to published works in peer-reviewed journals, encompassing women’s employment, private employment agencies, and international organizations’ impact on social policies, while also delivering lectures at Adnan Menderes and Hacettepe Universities.
