We’re looking for an experienced and motivated manager to lead our innovative InterAction project in Newcastle.
The InterAction drop-in launched in May 2019 and provides a safe and welcoming space for people seeking asylum, refugees and other migrants, giving them the vital chance to connect directly with local agencies and support services within the community. You will be leading a dynamic team of staff and volunteers, many of whom have lived experience of the asylum system, and work together to empower people to overcome homelessness, isolation, exclusion and poverty.
The successful candidate will demonstrate their experience in project management and leadership, developing networks and partnerships and have a strong awareness of the issues facing asylum seekers and refugees. They will be an excellent team player as well as equally able to work alone, have excellent organisational and communication skills and experience of working within the voluntary sector with a wide variety of stakeholders.
