Context and Purpose of the Job
The UK government has committed itself to a Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme whereby people fleeing persecution from Syria are selected and processed in the region of origin and brought to the UK with their status already determined, as well as the Vulnerable Children Resettlement Scheme. This scheme resettles children and adults from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, with a particular focus on supporting vulnerable children at risk and their families.
Under these schemes 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 Refugee Council has agreed to work in partnership with Hertfordshire local authorities to deliver the regional programme. The Project manager will work closely with the Local Authorities. This post will report to the project manager in Hertfordshire.
