Job Details

The Liberal Jewish Synagogue’s Drop-in for Asylum Seeker Families has been running since June 2014. Opening one Sunday a month, we welcome families with children under 16 who are applying for asylum in the UK and provide a warm, welcoming and respectful space for them to relax. As at May 2018, we had welcomed over 500 adults and 1,000 children seeking asylum from over 30 countries.

We are now looking to recruit a Project Administrator. As this is part of a funded project, the initial appointment will be a fixed term contract for twelve months which we hope may be extended or renewed.

This is a part-time fixed term post which we anticipate will total approximately 63 days per year as follows:

• Approximately 8 hours per week (there is a degree of flexibility as to when these hours can be worked);

• 1 day per month attendance at the Drop-in (held one Sunday per month, usually the second Sunday per month); and

• Attendance at Steering Group meetings held 4 times per year at 7:30 on a Thursday evening (2 hours per meeting).

This role would suit someone with strong interpersonal skills, proven administrative experience, an intermediate knowledge of Word and Excel, with an interest in, or experience of, the asylum field.
