This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a dynamic national student charity working to build a society where refugees are welcomed and supported to thrive as equal members of the community. One of the key ways we do this is by recruiting, training and supporting student volunteers to work with local refugee charities to provide direct support to refugees and asylum seekers in the community. Last year over 2000 STAR students volunteered in 90 local projects from English Conversation Clubs to homework clubs, football clubs and university open days, providing a really practical welcome for 4000 people, all across the UK.
STAR is looking for an experienced Volunteer Coordinator, with frontline experience of supporting refugee and asylum seekers, to join our small and friendly team. You’ll be responsible for ensuring STAR groups volunteer to support refugees in their communities in an effective and safe way by providing them with expert advice, guidance and training and connecting them with great volunteering partner organisations.
