We're recruiting a UKR/RU speaking Service Provider

By Dmitri Macmillen - 11 November 2022

The Work Rights Centre is looking for a Ukrainian/Russian speaking Service provider to join our ambitious and fast-growing team. We are a charity set up by migrants, for migrants, and for all disadvantaged communities throughout the UK, and as one of few organisations with Ukrainian-Russian 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 passionate frontline team. This is an ideal position for a candidate who is looking to build a career in a legal profession, and who values the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of migrants and disadvantaged Britons. You’ll have a chance to learn from two experienced solicitors, train, and progress your career, in a friendly and supportive environment.

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 helping them apply under the Ukraine schemes, under the careful guidance of our Immigration Solicitor. On another day, you may be helping someone fight workplace exploitation, under the guidance of our Employment Solicitor, or support them to apply for Universal Credit. You will work alongside an experienced team of experts, and have an opportunity to exercise your skills as a caseworker, but also as a communicator.

About you

We’re looking for a caring and confident colleague who shares our commitment to providing excellent advice  to the Ukrainian community, and other vulnerable migrants. 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.
  • At least 1 year’s 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.
