  • Experience of developing and delivering training on safeguarding and protection at all levels.

  • Understanding and experience of safeguarding and protection issues related to volunteers including mental health and resilience.

  • Experience of working with asylum seekers, refugees, displaced people or for human rights-based organisations.

The successful applicant will be provided with the induction and training needed for them to succeed in the role. Care4Calais is dedicated to cultivating a diverse and inclusive work environment and recognises that this is invaluable to our ability to serve the communities we support.
