AVID works to promote the welfare and well-being of all those in immigration detention. We do this by promoting and developing volunteer visiting and by lobbying for positive change in the use of detention in the UK. AVID is a membership based organisation, and our membership is central to everything we do. We have 16 member organisations, as well as individual members, who give their time to befriend and support immigration detainees across the country.
We are seeking applications for the post of Training and Membership Coordinator, to join our team supporting volunteer visitors and immigration detainees nationally. This is an exciting role in a small dynamic charity – the perfect opportunity for someone with training and development experience, and experience of working with volunteer groups, to contribute directly to the support and wellbeing of immigration detainees.
The Training and Membership Coordinator position is offered on a job share basis with the existing post holder. You will work together to support AVID's member groups through the provision of high quality training, advice, support, information and resources on all aspects of volunteer visiting in immigration detention. This includes - for example - delivering our bespoke training modules, and providing intensive development support and guidance to new groups.
Because this position is offered on a job share basis, the hours are 22.5 per week initially but this may be subject to an increase in future. The job is based at our offices in Hackney, but we will sometimes require the post holder to travel nationally. Due to the nature of the role, some evening and weekend working is required, and time off in lieu is given.
AVID is committed to operating as an equal opportunities organisation. We welcome applications from refugees, and in particular from former detainees, to reflect the composition of our user group.
