There are about 2,000 LGBTQI people claiming asylum in the UK every year because of their sexuality, gender identity or intersex status. When they come to the UK they are still not safe. They are often abused in refugee accommodation by other refugees who come from the same or similar countries to the one they are escaping; they become homeless and depressed; and they are rejected by their ethnic community and live in poverty.
The job involves coordinating our online and offline activities, providing admin support to the team in running Micro Rainbow’s programmes, administering day-to-day financial transactions and coordinating our team of volunteers.
The role will also support a team of volunteers/experts through experience who will encourage LGBTQI people seeking asylum and refugees to raise their voices as activists and experts calling for a fair and effective asylum system.
The ideal candidate is passionate about equality, has excellent coordination, IT and administration skills.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
