Job description

Care4Calais are recruiting for a Policy and Advocacy Manager with experience of asylum and human rights to develop and deliver our advocacy strategy and campaigns during a critical time for the refugee sector.

This year will be incredibly important for the future of refugee rights in the UK, and the fast paced and high-profile nature of the sector can be challenging.  We’re looking for an experienced policy and advocacy manager who is analytical, clear sighted and is a natural communicator. If you are ready to oppose the clear and present danger of the Nationality and Borders Act we’d love to hear from you.

As an expanding charity working in complex and politicised environment, the work can be highly pressured, so a calm resilience is important.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to

  • Produce evidence-based thought leadership on the impact of asylum policy of the lives of refugees, asylum seekers and communities in the UK and France
  • Influence policymakers by representing the voices of refugees and asylum seekers.
  • Effect changes in Government practices and policies that positively impact the lives of refugees
  • Draft quick responses to media issues that are underpinned by organisational policy and messaging into account the most up to date political and policy information
  • Build and maintain relationships with key media, policy and political stakeholders to increase the charity’s reputation, profile and influence

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a fearless team of game changers dedicated to positively changing the lives of refugees.

The role

This is a new role to support the CEO to deliver Care4Calais’ brave and bold policy work and to increase its impact.

Care4Calais’ policy work is based on our unique position working with refugees both in Northern France before they come to the UK and across Britain as they start to rebuild their lives. The core focus of this role is to create real change for refugees in the UK and to work at the interface of policy and communications to influence both the public and policy makers.


  • Experience of writing clear, accurate and insightful documents to advise, critique, and influence Government, policy makers and the public.
  • Experience of crafting engaging and compelling campaign asks that have influenced policy, practice or behaviours.
  • Experience of interpreting complex ideas in technical language into engaging material for non-technical or non-policy audiences.
  • An informed, critical thinker who can identify insights and trends, and is keen to debate and develop opinions.
  • Knowledge of the UK Government’s refugee and asylum policy
  • Knowledge of international human rights law and asylum law

Please provide a covering letter that explains why you are suitable for this role and why you want to work with Care4Calais - we will only consider applications that are accompanied by a covering letter.

Additionally, applicants should supply:

  • Links to two policy engagement campaigns that they have worked on.
  • Links to two blog or other pieces of writing they have written.
