Job description

We are looking for an experienced project coordinator and supervisor OISC L2 (OISC L3 desirable) or solicitor with equivalent qualification for an exciting position leading a new pan-London immigration advice service for migrants at risk of destitution.

The post holder will manage and supervise a team of OISC level 2 immigration advisors providing specialist immigration advice and casework under the STAR project funded by London Councils. This is a pan-London housing and homelessness project working with Londoners which aims to help up to 5,000 people a year in partnership with Thames Reach, Stonewall Housing and St Mungo’s with Shelter the lead partner.  This service is delivered through a mixture of channels including telephone, face-to-face and digital. Due to Covid-19 all our services are currently delivered remotely with a view to a staged return  adjusted to evolving circumstances and clients needs.

You will play a key role in coordinating this new project and will hold a small caseload of complex cases feeding into our advocacy and campaign work.

 

Praxis is a dynamic, award-winning human rights charity supporting migrants in crisis or at-risk, ensuring that their essential human needs are met and that they are able to overcome the barriers they face. We have more than 35 years of experience working with migrant communities, and in 2019 we supported around 2,000 people through expert legal advice, housing and peer support. Our holistic approach supports people away from a point of crisis and destitution towards safety, economic independence, social engagement and greater emotional wellbeing.

At Praxis, we work to build community, challenge exclusion and discrimination, influence policy and improve services. We played a leading role in exposing the Windrush scandal and advocate and campaign for lasting changes to policy and practice to address the root causes of the issues faced by at-risk migrants
