Resources Manager

Job Description

Haringey Migrant Support Centre (HMSC) is a vibrant community support service, set up in October 2012 to identify and improve the legal position and personal well-being of migrants - irrespective of their status - living in or near the London Borough of Haringey. We have a particular focus on those migrants who are unable to access advice or support elsewhere, making our service absolutely essential to some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

We provide a weekly triaging service, followed by appointments, offering free, high quality advice on immigration, housing, community care and welfare issues, along with a follow up casework service, as well as giving social and practical support. We have a proactive, enthusiastic and talented volunteer support base, who - led by our skilful and dedicated staff - enable us to carry out a high quality and effective service on a shoestring budget.

Every year, we support many hundreds of migrants. In our first 6 years we have helped thousands of migrants receive the support and advice they need, and to access the services to which they are entitled. Many of the people we help are destitute, and the work we do has a transformative effect on the lives of adults, children and families.

To get to the next stage in our development we are seeking a Resources Manager, who can perform a general management role to ensure that the day to day operation of the centre runs smoothly and to provide all necessary support to the Service Delivery team (including HR, Finance, Facilities, Fundraising and Management Information).

The Resources Manager will work closely with the Services Manager to ensure that all services are delivered in line with the quality and ethos of the HSMC and will provide support and cover for the Services Manager as required.

We are looking for a dedicated, innovative self-starter with experience of working in small organisations in a general management role to join our small team, developing our processes and long-term sustainability.

You could make a real difference to our charity and the migrants we support. As a small charity, your actions in support of the centre will make a significant and direct impact on the lives of migrants and their families.

In order to apply, you will need to complete our application form, outlining your eligibility for the role, and covering the items outlined in the person specification.

All applicants must be eligible to work in the UK, and are requested to declare any unspent convictions within their application. A person’s criminal record will not, in itself, debar that person from being appointed to this post. Suitable applicants will not be refused posts because of offences which are not relevant to, and do not place them at or make them a risk in, the role for which they are applying. It is however important that applicants understand that failure to disclose all unspent convictions could result in disciplinary proceedings or dismissal

We encourage applications from people with migrant and refugee backgrounds.

Application Deadline: 5pm Tuesday 29th January 2019

Interview date: Wednesday 6th February 2019
