Job description

Working 3 Days a Week (22.5 Hours) at £32,500 Pro Rata.

Fixed term, 12 months.

We are normally based in Knights Youth Centre in Streatham, South London, where our weekly youth club is held. However during additional working days you may work from home.

Da'aro Youth Project was established in 2018 by members of the Eritrean community in London. We are a community-led organisation supporting young refugees from the Horn of Africa. We aim to promote the wellbeing of these migrant young people living in the UK, through direct support, through building bridges in the Eritrean community and through advocating for changes to unfair and discriminatory systems which undermine their wellbeing. We believe that building sustainable relationships of trust and support within the Eritrean community is the best way to empower young people and enable them to overcome their marginalisation within society.

As Operational Manager, you will have to work with members of the Eritrean community in London to develop a positive programme of activities for young asylum-seeking people from the Horn of Africa. You will also have to work alongside young refugees, asylum seekers and other young migrants who are at risk or in crisis to ensure that they can access their statutory rights and achieve their full potential.

You will have experience of managing and delivering youth services to vulnerable young people, as well as providing advice, guidance and support to young people who are refugees, are seeking asylum or are vulnerable as a result of migration. You will also have excellent interpersonal skills, and experience in community organising, in order to be able to build effective relationships with members of the Eritrean community, in order to source volunteer help and promote community mentoring.

Fluent spoken Tigrinya language skills is highly desirable due to the specifics of this role.

To apply please submit your CV and coverng letter by the below date.

Closing date: 11.30pm, Monday, 2 November 2020.

We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates, candidates with disabilities, and from women, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level.

The successful candidate will be required to apply for a criminal records check. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the role and the circumstances of your offences.
