The UK government has committed itself to a Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme whereby people fleeing persecution from Syria are selected and processed in the region of origin and brought to the UK with their status already determined. Under this scheme a specific quota of refugees will be coming to the UK for resettlement.
The resettlement team provides advice and support for resettled refugees to help them access services and mainstream provision, and establish community links. Working closely with local stakeholders and in partnership with other voluntary sector agencies running similar services across the UK, the Refugee Council resettlement team promotes both the integration and independence of this group.
The Employment adviser will prepare refugees for appropriate employment and achieve their chosen employment objective. The Employment adviser will work to a variety of performance targets based on the progression outcomes of clients such as successful completion of training courses, voluntary and work placements and paid employment. This post will report to the Hull Resettlement Project Manager.
