We’re looking for an Outreach Coordinator
We’re looking for an energetic, compassionate, and highly communicative Outreach Coordinator to join the West London Welcome team for six months, starting as soon as possible.
The Outreach Coordinator will coordinate and perform our COVID pandemic-related outreach work within Hammersmith and Fulham. Through this outreach work we aim to extend our reach and support many more people that we are able to currently. This outreach work will be hands-on and take place out in the community (not desk-based), focusing on supporting a large number of newly-arrived asylum-seeking families and individuals placed in local hotels by the Home Office, who need a considerable amount of support finding legal aid solicitors, food, clothing, schools and GPs. Post-pandemic this role could extend to include coordinating outings, enrichment activities, and signposting members to groups, clubs, education and work opportunities and other creative projects that are offered to West London Welcome members.
We would ideally like the post-holder to live within Hammersmith and Fulham or a nearby borough, in order to easily perform local outreach work.
To apply for this role, please email us your CV along with a letter of application no longer than two A4 pages long, describing your experience, skills, and why you feel you would be a good fit for the role while bearing in mind the job description and person specification, by Friday 19th February 2021. We will be reviewing applications as soon as they come in, so we may close to applications early. Applications should be emailed to Joanne MacInnes, Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are passionate about ensuring West London Welcome’s staff reflect the communities we support. We are taking positive action to address an under-representation of lived- experience of refuge or migration, or people from Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, within our current staff team. We will prioritise applications from applicants with lived-experience of refuge and migration and from BAME backgrounds, if they meet the minimum essential criteria for this role.
