Non Press Advert
Project Manager in the Resettlement Team
(Temporary until 31 January 08, subject to confirmation of funding)

Grade 7
Salary £26,928 pro rata
Based Norwich

The Refugee Council is the largest charity working with asylum seekers and refugees in the UK, and provides services to clients in offices in London, Ipswich, Leeds, Hull, Oakington, Sheffield and Birmingham

The UK Government has committed itself to a refugee resettlement programme whereby people fleeing persecution are selected and processed in the region of origin and brought to the UK with their refugee status already determined. Under this scheme a specific quota of refugees will be coming to the UK for permanent resettlement.

Refugee Council is working as lead agency, in partnership with British Red Cross, to deliver the programme in Norwich. The resettlement team will provide advice and support for resettled refugees to help them access services and mainstream provision, and establish community links. Working closely with local stakeholders and in partnership with other voluntary sector agencies running similar services across the UK, the Refugee Council resettlement team in Norwich will promote both the integration and independence of this group

The Project Manager in the resettlement team will manage a joint Refugee Council and Red Cross team, providing 12 months’ support services to a group of refugees arriving in Norwich through the Gateway Protection Programme. You will have experience of working with a large multi-cultural team, managing a large workload in a demanding work environment, and of managing and developing staff. Experience of working with and supporting volunteers is also needed, as well as experience of having provided direct services to vulnerable client groups. You must have the ability to contribute effectively to planning and developing services, and to implement effective quality assurance systems within the team. Good written and verbal communication skills are also essential. 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: Wednesday 25th October @ 12 midday.
Interviews will be held on Friday 3rd November.
An application pack can be printed from the global drive – recruitment folder – current vacancies
