Integration Projects Manager (Maternity Cover) (Post: KM777)

The Organisation

Founded in 1951, the Refugee Council exists to support people who come to the UK in need of safety and speak out for compassion, fairness and kindness. We achieve this by providing expert advice and casework, building the capacity of refugee community organisations, and working with allies across society to change government policy. Our vision for refugees to be welcome to live safe and fulfilling lives contributing to the UK has never been more urgent and needed. Today 27 million refugees and 84 million displaced people around the
world need of safety, dignity and welcome. We are determined to secure public and government
support for safe routes for all people seeking safety, and a fair, effective and compassionate refugee protection system. Now is an excellent time to join the Refugee Council. Our strategy – which you can read here – sets an ambitious direction which will see us defend refugee protection in the UK against the Government’s corrosive plans with refugees and like-minded allies, united in our desire to create a just, fair and humane refugee protection system. It will also see us delivering direct services that improve people’s refugee protection journey through targeted advice and casework, and strengthening and connecting Refugee Community Organisations with other service providers and advocates.
