BACKGROUND 

The Helen Bamber Foundation (HBF) is a human rights organization with an international reputation for providing medical consultation, therapeutic care, legal protection, and practical support to survivors of trafficking and torture.  We are a team of therapists, doctors, lawyers, caseworkers, and administrators who help men, women and children recover from the emotional and physical damage they have suffered because of torture, human trafficking, or other forms of cruelty.  We work with hundreds of survivors every year from all over the world.

OVERVIEW OF THE ROLE 

You will be joining the Helen Bamber Foundation community integration team - a programme and client pathway that enables and supports our clients to develop connections, community, and independence. We are seeking a skilled individual with integration and community development experience who can undertake casework and provide support for multiple projects, activities, and partnerships with a focus on increasing the digital skills that our clients need to lead independent lives.

 

You will be essential to ensuring that our clients build and sustain their recovery through integration activities and are able to increase their digital skills by working with our clients throughout their journeys at HBF.
