Generalist & resettlement Caseworker x2 at Voices in Exile

We are looking for people for two demanding but rewarding and evolving roles at Voices in Exile as generalist caseworkers who can also manage a complex refugee resettlement caseload. The postholders will be flexible and skilled, with an essential interest in and experience of working with vulnerable clients with complex needs, and particularly with migrant and refugee clients.

The posts might suit someone with a social work background who is interested in broadening and deepening their practice within the migrant sector; or a generalist or immigration adviser who is interested in working with a mixed caseload that includes needs around destitution, homelessness, immigration, integration and resettlement. We actively welcome applications from those with lived and relevant experience – please see the job description and person specification below and attached for more information.

Regular supervision and support and in-house and on-the-job training will be provided, as well as external training on specific issues where needed. However you will need to be ready to step immediately into a busy advice environment with the necessary confidence, skills and knowledge to begin to deliver advice and casework to an existing caseload.

You might be required to work out of hours where there are emergencies or if and when there are new arrivals in need of immediate support; and you would be expected to attend some home and outreach visits (both in and beyond the city in East and West Sussex) in line with our current risk assessments.

We are still largely working remotely and planning a return to a hybrid working model based from our Kemptown offices from September. We have clear Covid risk assessments, policies and procedures in place.

You will need to have permission to work in the UK.
