IMIX supports the refugee and migration sector to shift public attitudes on migration and create an open and welcoming Britain for people who make the UK their home. We believe that public attitudes towards refugees and migrants will only improve by working collaboratively to influence the political, media, and public debate.
The purpose of the Community Outreach Coordinator is to build IMIX’s community of spokespeople with lived experience of the immigration system, particularly those who were forced to seek sanctuary here, through training, social networks, digital projects and media opportunities.
This role values life experience over formal qualifications and we particularly welcome applicants with lived experience of the asylum system. We are looking for someone with the initiative to pick up the phone, the ability to connect with people who have come on different journeys, and a creative approach to dealing with challenges.
The successful applicant should have a strong interest in the media, storytelling and refugee and immigration issues, and be prepared to learn on the job. A good command of English is essential, but we actively welcome applications from people who speak English as a second language – we value the additional language skills they would bring to the role.
To apply please submit a maximum two-page CV and a short cover letter via the Diversifying jobs platform. Closing date for applications is midnight on 29th July, 2021
