Job description

Are you passionate about migration and asylum issues - or do you have lived experience? This is an exciting opportunity to oversee Samphire's strategic plan for the next three years and expand our advocacy efforts.

Samphire's vision is: "to create a society which is more inclusive and compassionate towards migrants." We work at national and local level. Our telephone helpline provides a range of services, nationwide, for people who have experienced immigration detention. In Dover and East Kent we run immigration legal advice clinics and our Community Engagement and Schools projects seek to raise awareness of the facts and issues surrounding migration and to foster more inclusive attitudes in local schools and communities. Currently, we also run psycho-social activities with asylum seekers at Napier Barracks, Folkestone.

As Director (3 days per week) you will provide the leadership and management expertise to maintain the smooth and efficient operation of our projects, including fund-raising. You will provide input into our strategic plan, and be responsible for ensuring that all our current and future projects are in line with our strategic objectives.

If you have experience of advocacy or media work, please consider applying for Samphire's other job vacancy of Advocacy Lead (1 day per week) posted on this site. Our preference is to recruit one committed and competent individual to fill both posts.
