The client has identified strategic legal work as a key means of achieving change and promoting a just and equitable immigration, asylum and nationality law practice. Hosting the fund provides the organisation with the opportunity to become aware of innovative strategies for promoting the rights of young migrants at the earliest possible stage, to support and shape this work and to explain and disseminate information about victories won. The fund reaches beyond immigration to all areas of law touched by immigration status, often components of the 'hostile environment' with which young migrants must contend.


The successful candidate will be responsible for a number of tasks that include but is not limited to, managing the project budget, monitoring, evaluating and collecting available data, producing regular updates and reports and liaising with potential bidders including immigration and legal professionals.


The appointed candidate will have excellent communication skills, both written and oral, with the ability to engage with a wide range of stakeholders along with good IT skills and experience of supporting applicants for Grant funding will be essential.
