The Refugee and Migrant Forum of Essex and London (RAMFEL) is one of the largest specialist immigration advice organisations in the UK. Having developed and expanded our casework capacity in the previous 5 years, we have decided strategically that the organisation now needs to campaign for more holistic changes to the UK’s immigration system, to ensure that migrants are treated both more fairly and more humanely.
As part of this work, we aim for those with direct lived experience of the UK’s immigration system to work with us closely to set the organisation’s strategic direction and ensure we are advocating for change in ways that will most benefit those directly impacted. We are therefore establishing an experts by experience (EBE) task force, which will be led by people who have first-hand experience of the UK’s immigration system.
Job title – Coordinator of experts by experience task force
We are looking for a highly organised and passionate individual to coordinate the creation and facilitation of RAMFEL’s EBE task-force. The role will be primarily based at our main office in Stratford, but may also require work from our second workspace in Ilford.
This role is a great opportunity for someone looking for their next challenge within the charity sector and who wishes to use their real-life experience of the immigration system to campaign for meaningful and lasting changes to the way migrants are treated in the UK.
Lived experience of the impact of immigration policy and practice is considered highly desirable for this position.
Salary and Benefits: £27, 591 – £30,387 depending on qualifications and experience pro-rata
Contract Duration: Fixed term 1 year, with the possibility to extend depending on funding
Working Hours: 0.6 FTE (3 days a week, 22.5 hours)
Pension scheme: Employer contribution 6%
Holiday entitlement: 28 days’ annual leave (pro rata and excluding bank holidays), childcare vouchers and cycle to work scheme available
Location: primarily RAMFEL’s offices in Stratford.
RAMFEL, is a not for profit organisation led by the needs of the individuals and communities we work with. Our focus is on providing immigration advice, destitution services, integration support and campaigning to improve the lives of refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants across London and Essex and campaigning for systemic change to ensure the UK’s immigration system treats migrants more humanely.
This is a new role to assist the organisation in establishing an experts by experience task force.
