The Role:

Reunite Families UK [RFUK] is a lived experience-led, not-for-profit organisation supporting families who are affected by the UK spouse visa rules. Our team’s personal experience of the application process and Home Office requirements enables us to offer support, information and guidance to those navigating a complex immigration system and raise awareness of the many impacts of the rules on families. The Campaign Officer will work with the Directors to manage the work we do around policy and campaigning, communicating the impact of the government policies on families and children and, through this work, building networks within migration and non-migration organisations. The Campaign Officer will also work with other members of the team to ensure social media/communications and other campaign work is being maximised whilst helping build upon our online and real-world network. The Campaign Officer should also be interested in innovative and creative ways of engaging other networks, organisations and individuals and being part of the creative process with the team.

Knowledge of the UK immigration system is essential. Lived experience of the immigration system a bonus
