Further Information

World Jewish Relief is the UK Jewish community’s leading international development and humanitarian agency. Our mission is to assist those living in poverty, affected by disaster or who are displaced, to survive, earn a living, find employment and be better able to support themselves. We tackle Jewish poverty and reach beyond our community. We create opportunities for those out of work to become self-reliant; we bring dignity to the elderly and we respond to international disasters. Our support to refugees in the UK, assisting them to find employment, has become a flagship initiative of ours.

We have an exciting opportunity for an Employment Advisor to join our Specialist Training and Employment Programme (STEP). STEP supports refugees to develop the skills and identify the opportunities they need to secure sustainable employment.

The Employment Advisor will be seconded to work at The North of England Refugee Service (NERS) in Sunderland for the fixed term contract to deliver the STEP service as part of the North East Refugee Integration Support and Employment (NE RISE) project.

The primary purpose of this role is to provide an exemplary level of support to STEP clients in Sunderland, Newcastle, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Northumberland. The Employment Advisor is responsible for working directly with Refugee clients, preparing them for competitive employment and helping them to achieve their chosen training and employment objectives. You 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 achieving and sustaining paid employment.

World Jewish Relief promotes equality, diversity and inclusion in our workplace. We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds. We encourage applications from candidates of different ethnicities, race, socio-economic backgrounds, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation and of faith or none that meet the criteria set out in this role.

You don’t need to be Jewish to work for us, but you must be committed to our faith based values of Justice, Kindness, Repairing the World and Welcoming the Stranger. We are inspired by these values to work beyond our community, recognising the dignity and potential of all people.
