Reporting to the Head of UK Legal & Arrivals
Safe Passage International (SPI) is recruiting a fixed-term Legal Caseworker to support and to enable continuing and sustainable growth in our ground-breaking work to ensure that safe routes to sanctuary exist for all people seeking asylum.
We are looking for legal caseworker skills, as detailed in the Person Specification. Experience in a similar role would be welcome, but this could also be your first paid position in the charity sector, or you could be returning to work after time out. This position will have a dedicated training budget and you will be supported to grow and develop within your role.
Closely supporting the UK Legal Team, you will facilitate the work of Safe Passage across all our entities in the UK, Greece, and France. You will provide support to our legal teams.
You will be attentive to detail, flexible, efficient, great at time management, and able to work well both independently and under supervision as part of a small and energetic team. A keen interest in the charity/NGO/refugee sectors is advantageous.
We value equality and diversity in our organisation, and are striving to build a workforce reflective of the communities we work in. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, or disability. People with refugee or asylum-seeking backgrounds are experts by experience and are particularly encouraged to apply.
As a refugee charity, we offer a guaranteed interview for people with lived experience of seeking asylum who meet most of the essential criteria outlined in the Person Specification. If you have first-hand experience of applying for asylum in any country, please let us know in your application.
We respect that people’s identity is not defined by their past experiences and do not expect candidates to describe their lived experience during the interview process unless they wish to.
If you would like an informal chat about our Legal Caseworker role and your experiences, please contact Alamara, Interim Joint Head of UK Legal, on email@example.com
