Refugee Employment Advisor (Central & East London)

Job Reference: RR13

Salary/Hourly Rate: £24,500 per annum

Location: Central & East London

Full or Part time: Full time

Duration: 1 year contract (subject to extension)

Imagine if your job was to support, coach and mentor refugees and asylum seekers into employment?  Most people who work for this charity don’t leave.  The role is for 12 months, but the average advisor has been there at least 4 years.  They are a nice charity to work for, driven to get results, but with their eye on the big picture – helping people.

As a specialist advisor, you will work with a caseload of refugees and asylum seekers who are not in work and provide Information Advice and Guidance to assist them into sustainable employment – you will be in charge of managing your own diary and take part in outreach work (mainly covering East & Central London boroughs) to encourage clients to join the programme and to overcome barriers to employment such as interview skills, CV writing, undertaking assessments, job search techniques and applications, in addition to delivering training and mentoring and developing individual action plans. There are monthly targets to work to – but it’s not all about the job starts.

To apply, you must hold an IAG L3 (or above) and ideally experience in working with refugees and asylum seekers. Also; please note this is a 12 months fixed term contract (subject to extension).

Apply via this site if interested, or if you have any questions, feel free to call the office and ask for Riccardo (number on the Red 5 site) .
