This is an opportunity to play an influential role in a relatively new and developing organisation for up to one year, working with a committed and dynamic core staff group, board of trustees and a wider team, including volunteers and sessional staff with lived experience of the asylum and immigration system. The role has 3 key strands (see detailed job description below):

  • Managing volunteers, project and sessional staff who are developing and delivering activities including welcome and orientation services and volunteering opportunities.
