STEP Employment and Training Adviser LEEDS - Refugee Council

STEP Employment and Training Adviser LEEDS

The UK government has committed itself to a Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme whereby people fleeing persecution from Syria and other countries are selected and processed in the region of origin and brought to the UK with their status already determined. Under this scheme a specific quota of refugees will be coming to the UK for resettlement.

The resettlement team provides 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 promotes both the integration and independence of this group.

The Employment and Training Adviser is responsible for working directly with a caseload of refugee clients who are on the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme. The Employment and Training Adviser will prepare refugees for competitive employment and achieve their chosen employment objective. The Employment and Training Adviser will work to a variety of performance targets based on the progression outcomes of clients such as successful completion of training courses, voluntary and work placements and paid employment. This post is part of the WJR STEP programme that operates in other UK cities.
