Welcome Churches’ vision is for every refugee to be welcomed by the local church. We do this by equipping and resourcing churches to welcome refugees and people seeking asylum to their local community and by profiling them on our national Welcome Network. In 2022 so far our Welcome Network of refugee-welcoming churches has grown to over 1,000 churches across the UK and this number is increasing every month. Last August, we responded to the urgent need to help welcome newly-arriving Afghans in the UK. We have been able to connect over 4,000 Afghans with their local church and provided training to over 500 individuals from local churches to be ready to welcome them. We are continuing to support churches as they offer friendship and support to thousands of Afghans still in hotels. We are also supporting Ukrainians and the churches hosting and welcoming them and have provided training to over 350 individuals, alongside our Ukraine Hub of key resources and regular Connect meetings and our website ukrainewelcome.
In addition to responding to urgent needs, we have a number of projects which churches can run. We provide a variety of training and resources to churches to support, disciple and include refugees in all aspects of church life. Our Welcome Boxes project provides a way for churches to proactively welcome newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers in their location. Another of our newer projects, Welcome Holidays, provides an opportunity for refugees to enjoy a short break somewhere new in the UK, hosted by a church who generously provides hospitality and some planned days of holiday. We are also increasingly working to connect churches with hotels in their location that are accommodating people seeking asylum, in order for the church to join in with supporting and welcoming those housed there.
We are at a pivotal moment as a charity as demand for our work is growing exponentially. We are seeking to provide consistent and high quality support to churches in our Welcome Network, focusing initially on churches in areas with high numbers of refugees and people seeking asylum. This role will particularly focus on engaging with churches and other refugee-related organisations across the North of England, supporting and equipping churches, delivering Welcome Churches training to churches and engaging with churches not yet in our Welcome Network.
This position would be suitable for a self-motivated leader with knowledge and experience of supporting refugees and people seeking asylum at a local level. You should be able to relate well with church leaders of all backgrounds and work professionally in local partnerships across organisations supporting refugees and people seeking asylum. We are a highly-committed team who work collaboratively to support one another.
Applicants are required to have an active Christian faith and be passionate about the UK Church welcoming refugees into the church community. Applicants from a refugee background are strongly encouraged to apply.
In order to apply for this position, please submit a 2-page cover letter and CV to emma.billington @ welcomechurches. org by 9am on Wednesday 31 August. Interviews will be conducted face to face in Manchester (venue TBC) on Wednesday 7 September.

CoachBright is a social mobility movement. We are working towards a day where no young person’s background determines their future. Still now, in 2022, there is a postcode lottery. We are at a crisis point. If you are born poor, you are likely to stay poor. The chances of a young person succeeding in life are largely down to where they live.
Our mission is to instil young people with the independence and resilience to lead the lives they want. Now, more than ever, it is essential that young people from disadvantaged backgrounds get the support they need to achieve their goals. Covid-19 has further widened the gap between the pupils who have the income and resources to withstand educational disruption, during the past few months and those who don’t. That’s why we’re playing our part to narrow the gap and support a generation of pupils to be their best.
We are young, ambitious and optimistic, and are looking for someone as passionate as we are about creating a socially just world. If you get out of bed to transform the life chances of young people and want to shape and grow a values-driven social mobility organisation, we would love to hear from you.

Location: Home-based with access to co-work spaces in Manchester, Reading or London and regular travel to Foyers and events.
Reporting to: Chief Executive
You are someone with a passion for social change and young people, and a fascination for impact measurement, learning and quality development. You are able to evidence this through your writing and professional or voluntary experience. You are intellectually curious, with the energy and determination to deepen our shared understanding of how young people experiencing homelessness can be best supported to realise their power and purpose.
You have a deep commitment to justice, equity, diversity and inclusion and to understanding the barriers and enablers to participation.
You will thrive in a small, creative and ambitious team working on multiple projects and assignments, and have the flexibility to handle a broad and changeable workload. You’ll be able to jump right in, working closely with the team to deliver at an exciting phase of our strategic development and organisational growth.
We are aware of the ambition and breadth of this role and are interested in hearing from candidates who feel they have the skills to grow into the role but who maybe don’t have all the experience described.
Who We Are

Since 1992, we have worked with a network of Foyers to inspire, challenge and quality assure approaches to developing the skills and resources young people need to thrive, not just cope.
We believe all young people can shape a successful journey into adulthood if they have access to the right training, contacts and opportunities to invest in their talents. We’re leading a movement of like-minded organisations and individuals who want to improve the prospects of all young people through an asset-based approach, which we call ‘Advantaged Thinking’. We’re committed to working with our network of Foyers and external experts to improve the ‘offer’ for young people.
We are looking for individuals who resonate with our core values: Maverick, Savvy, Authentic, Loving and Brave.
As Head of Learning and Impact you will play a crucial role as we establish a more insight led and evidence based approach to our activities. In the role you will lead on shaping how we gather data and insights from our network of youth accommodation projects (Foyers) and the young people they support.
You will help us develop existing systems (such as the data we gather through our accreditation scheme) and establish new impact measurement tools (through a new development programme to capture and improve learning in Foyers). By tracking and understanding the trends and capturing the learning and evidence at a local level we will improve our programmes and network offering and open up new opportunities for young people who have experienced homelessness.
To effectively manage and deliver a national development programme to increase and improve the learning offer in Foyers (and beyond) and capture the insights, impacts and voice of young people directly.
