City of Sanctuary is seeking a Campaigns Project Manager for the North East for the Asylum Matters project.
Asylum Matters is a new project that brings together and builds on the successful work of Still Human Still Here and Regional Asylum Activism (RAA). Asylum Matters will work in partnership locally and nationally to improve the lives of refugees and people seeking asylum through social and political change. By mobilising and coordinating local, regional and national advocacy work, the project will increase the impact of campaigns to secure improvements in asylum policy and practice. The mandate of the project is to drive forward and secure the eight goals identified at the Sanctuary Summit in November 2014.
The successful candidate will work in partnership with local organisations and networks in the North East to develop and implement strategies for promoting change locally and nationally. To that end, they will have experience of successfully developing and delivering creative and impactful campaigns that have achieved policy change. They will be an effective communicator, able to build strong partnerships and work collaboratively with partners to identify gaps, amplify existing work and facilitate connections. They will be a self-starter, able to spot influencing opportunities and swiftly mobilise support to seize them. They will have excellent knowledge of the asylum system and a commitment to providing a platform for the voices of those with direct experience of it.
