Non Press Advert
Regional Development Adviser
(Temporary until 31st March 07)

Grade 7

Salary 26,928

Based Newcastle
Refugees face considerable challenges settling in the UK and integrating into British society. The Home Office recently published Integration Matters, a national strategy for refugee integration that identifies key challenges in promoting integration as well as some of the resources need to meet these challenges.

The Regional Development Team (RDT) promotes the integration of refugees outside London. Regional Development Advisers in four English regions work with regional consortia, other regional bodies, statutory service providers and local authorities, but the main activity of the team is to promote the development of voluntary and community organisations working with refugees. The team provides advice and information, supports local and regional networks and works with these networks to organise training and other events for refugee-assisting organisations.

You will have broad knowledge and experience of working with asylum seekers, refugees, voluntary organisations, government offices, local authorities and statutory service providers. Knowledge of refugee issues, policies and refugee-assisting voluntary organisations in the UK is also required. Good team working and communication skills are needed to contribute to regular team meetings and to be able to share knowledge and experience across the team, to ensure the provision of a quality service. You must have the ability to analyse new and rapidly changing situations and develop effective and timely responses in order to provide effective advice to voluntary and community organisations. The post holder must be able to effectively manage and prioritise his or her own workload. You will be required to frequently travel within the region, and occasionally to London Head Office, therefore a degree of flexibility is needed. Your commitment to the work of The Refugee Council is vital along with an understanding of the importance of confidentiality and the principles of Equal Opportunities.

Closing date for completed applications: Friday 29th September @ 12 noon
