About Migrants Organise
Migrants Organise is a platform where migrants and refugees organise for power, dignity and justice. We work across the UK to bring community organisations, individuals, and institutions together on a common platform to act with, not for, migrants and refugees. We aim to make our communities stronger, more powerful and create spaces for us to speak out on issues affecting migrants and refugees, from isolation, discrimination, immigration policy, structural racism and more.
The Community provides practical support, advocacy and training for refugees and migrants. Our holistic approach includes advice services, group-work and mentoring with a particular focus on supporting vulnerable refugees and migrants.
We are currently supporting about 330 individuals through the Community Programme. We provide casework support to vulnerable refugees and migrants including advice on housing, welfare benefits, community care, education, asylum support and employment. We also work with an immigration barrister who provides fortnightly immigration advice sessions to our members.
We are looking for someone with experience of working with refugees or other vulnerable groups, and a strong commitment to equality, human rights and justice . A sound understanding of mental health problems – be that through personal experience, or previous job role – is highly desirable.
This post is full-time (35 hours weekly). We are open to appointing two part-time staff members. We would ideally like the adviser to start on 3rd July 2020.
This post is open to women only (Equality Act 2010 Work Occupational Requirement Exception, Schedule 9 Paragraph 1). This is because the role provides support to female members, many of whom experienced gender based violence and have sensitive health issues.
