We're recruiting a RU/UKR speaking Service Provider

By Lora Tabakova - 13 May 2022

The Work Rights Centre is looking for a Russian / Ukrainian speaking Service provision assistant to join our ambitious and fast-growing team. We are a charity set up by migrants and for migrants, and as one of few organisations with Russian – Ukrainian speaking staff, we’re at the forefront of the UK’s response to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

We’re looking for another colleague to join our frontline team in serving this community, at this important moment in time. This is a real chance to make your mark, and an ideal position for a candidate who is looking to build a career in a legal profession or community development. The charity encourages excellence, and has systems in place for career progression and continued training.

The Role

As a service provider leading on casework with the Ukrainian community,  you’ll work on a stimulating range of issues. One day you will support a family to find safety in the UK, by accessing one of the Home Office schemes for Ukraine. On another day, you will be helping someone fight exploitation on a farm. You will work alongside a supportive team, guided by an experienced service provision manager and two subject experts on immigration and employment.

About you

We’re looking for a caring and confident colleague who shares our commitment to providing excellent advice  to the Ukrainian community. Key criteria include:

  • Enthusiastic and proactive, motivated by a strong sense of justice.
  • Confident and resourceful, you enjoy client work and are keen to learn.
  • Two years’ experience in working with vulnerable adults, with a view to diagnose, and address, social mobility issues.
  • Experience providing advice, setting clear client expectations, and monitoring outcomes.
  • You have a real commitment to the aims and values of the Work Rights Centre.
