Refugee and Migrant Participation Officer

SALARY PO1 – £31,346 – £33.782


CONTRACT TYPE  Fixed Term (December 2022)

CLOSES Monday 15th February 2021

The purpose of this job is to increase the involvement of refugees and migrants to improve support, service delivery and integration outcomes for new migrants and refugees across the Yorkshire and Humber region. This role will work across all Migration Yorkshire projects and activities, working with partner organisations, key organisations and volunteers.

We are looking for someone enthusiastic about integration and who has ‘lived experience’ as a refugee or migrant. You will have experience of increasing the involvement and participation of excluded groups in services or community settings, be capable of addressing barriers and developing new and innovative ways of working collaboratively. The post holder will support existing initiatives at Migration Yorkshire and develop new ones. Current Migration Yorkshire initiatives focusing specifically on participation of refugees and migrants include Peer Researchers, Connecting Opportunities Community Champions, the Resettlement Refugee Advisory Group, and employer engagement opportunities.

The post is funded through ‘Refugee Integration Yorkshire & Humber’ which provides comprehensive support to improve the integration of refugees, with a strategic approach and front-line services, underpinned by research, evidence and refugee participation. Refugee Integration Yorkshire & Humber will deliver a regional strategy with commitments from all partners, galvanise key services, employers and civil society, produce robust research, and provide local one-to-one support and opportunities for individual refugees.

The project is managed by Migration Yorkshire and delivered across the Yorkshire and Humber region through a partnership of statutory and third sector organisations. The project is part funded by the European Union Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund.

Migration Yorkshire works with national government, local government, and others to ensure that Yorkshire and Humber can deal with, and benefit from, migration. Migration Yorkshire is hosted by Leeds City Council.
