Work with us

Voluntary role: Family support 

We require a volunteer to provide support to refugee families going through the reunion process. This role will help ensure that all our clients receive a the best possible support with the reunion process. You will provide high quality support to all applicants and all families who use our service ensuring that client’s needs are met promptly. You will work with the current case work volunteers and have a nominated person to go to if you need help but be expected to work from home independently and take on cases or offer support as your availability allows. We believe the role will suit someone who would like the opportunity to play an active role in supporting families and volunteer on a flexible basis.

We would welcome applicants from all backgrounds particularly those with experience of the asylum system, refugee family reunion or working with refugees and asylum seekers.

Voluntary role: Trustee

We are looking to expand our board and would like to appoint two new trustees. We are a small charity and our current trustees play various roles within the organisation, some taking a more traditional trustee role and some being more hands on with the work we do. All our trustees have good involvement with our case load as well as strategic decision making.

This is an exciting time for the organisation as we have recently seen a rise in the number of cases we are able to take on and in the types of work we carry out. This is in part due to new partnerships and grants received for our work. Our current focus is building our capacity and improving our offer to clients as well as looking at securing longer term funding.

What we’re looking for

Prospective trustees should be:

  • Enthusiastic and have an interest in refugee related issues
  • Willing to take an active role in the organisation
  • Confident in taking part in meetings
  • Competent with IT as much work is carried out remotely via email

We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with the following:

  • Lived experience of the family reunion process in the UK
  • Work or voluntary experience with refugees and asylum seekers
  • Knowledge of income generation and development in the third sector
  • Experience of developing relationships with businesses and/or partnership working
  • Marketing and/or fundraising experience

Application process

To apply please email a CV and covering letter explaining how your skills and experience match the requirements for the role to enquiries@togethernow.org.uk. We’d also welcome anyone who would like to speak to us to find out more about the role and how we work.

 

Although there is no formal interview process we would like to arrange for prospective trustees to meet one or more current board members.
