Job ad: immigration advice manager and senior immigration adviser, Settled

Settled has vacancies for 2 immigration advisers interested in setting up new services for EU citizens in Scotland and North West England. 

The deadline for applications to the EU Settlement Scheme has just passed — now the real work begins! Late applications, refused applications, requests for family members to join, transitions from ‘pre-settled’ to ‘settled’ status, problems proving entitlements, and more. Demand exceeds the capacity of Settled’s 100+ multi-lingual volunteers & small dedicated staff team. Substantial new grant-funding makes it possible for us to advertise the following 2 posts:

  • Firstly, an Immigration Advice Manager (Scotland), 3 days a week, fte £34,000 pa to manage own caseload, manage a small team of OISC Level 2 volunteers, manage 2 staff at partner organisation Citizens Rights Project, provide mutual support to Settled’s team and work positively with local providers.
  • Secondly, a Senior Immigration Adviser (North West England), 3 days a week, fte £32,000 pa to manage own caseload, manage a small team of OISC Level 2 volunteers, provide mutual support to Settled’s team and work positively with local providers.

Both posts require proactive, well-organised and resilient individuals with ability to provide immigration advice at OISC Level 2, excellent management and collaboration skills, integrity and sensitivity.
