Vacancy: Advocacy & Integration worker (21 hrs a week- Fixed term for 6 months)
- Migrant ActionallView all jobs

Migrant Action is an Advocacy and Rights based organization set up with the aim of ensuring migrants' rights and justice. We also aim to challenge and transform the structures that underpin injustices and inequalities inherent in the immigration system. Our work also aims to empower and enable migrants to integrate and lead fulfilling lives.  Migrant Action works with migrants who have fallen through the cracks of the immigration system including (but not restricted to) stateless people, those who have been unable to regularise their status, those on temporary visas, and EU migrants. We work to ensure equity of rights and justice for migrants, and although the primary focus of our work is not with asylum seekers and refugees, we do signpost them to appropriate agencies.

The post requires a high degree of flexibility, adaptability, and sound experience of working with migrants
