Dover, Kent
£29,636 - £31,371 per year
Contract, 12 months, Part-time
Job description

This is a new post and an exciting opportunity for someone with vision and strategic thinking to guide Samphire in developing a coherent advocacy strategy which encompasses our diverse projects. With the current debates surrounding immigration/asylum in post-Brexit Britain, it reflects our desire to place greater stress on advocacy in order to enhance progress towards our objectives and vision, namely, “to create a society which is compassionate and inclusive towards migrants”. We are looking for someone with experience of advocacy work or a background in journalism/media, who is knowledgeable about migrant/asylum issues, or has lived experience in the U.K. context.  You should be confident in being the spokesperson for the organisation when required, though your role is not necessarily to engage in advocacy yourself, but to empower staff and service-users to do so. This is initially a 12 month post with extension dependent on fund-raising.

Our preference is to recruit one committed and competent individual to fill both posts advertised on Charity Job, Director and Advocacy Lead, but we will also consider applications for either of the two.

Director (3 days per week)

Advocacy Lead (1 day per week)

Salary range for Advocacy Lead (if not filled by same person as Director) is NJC Pt  26-28: £29,636 - £31,371 (pro rata)

We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have lived experience of migration or have work experience within the sector.
