Job Title: Wales Campaigns Manager
Working For: Asylum Matters
Length of Contract: Permanent
Asylum Matters is looking for a dynamic campaigner passionately committed to upholding the rights of people seeking asylum in Wales and across the UK at a critical time for the future of the asylum system and the rights of refugees. We are a small, specialist team of campaign professionals based around the UK, working with an extensive network of frontline partners to advocate for progressive change in the asylum and immigration system. In addition to the Director and the Deputy Director, the team are based in Birmingham (covering the West Midlands), Leeds (covering Yorkshire and Humber), Manchester (covering the North West), and Middlesbrough (covering the North East).
Since it was established in 2016, Asylum Matters has played a significant role in bringing about positive change for refugees and people seeking sanctuary in the UK. We co-lead the award-winning Lift the Ban coalition campaign, that brings together over 250 organisations, from charities and think tanks to trade unions and local authorities, calling for the right to work for people seeking asylum. Together with high-profile national campaigning organisations, we work with front-line organisations to expose and address a range of issues that affect the rights and wellbeing of people in the asylum system, such as housing standards and asylum support rates.
We are a catalyst and convenor of collaboration and joint action. Our work helps strengthen collective advocacy on asylum reform and bridges the gap between policy and the reality on the ground.
