How can I support your work?

We are recruiting an Immigration Adviser

Haringey Migrant Support Centre (HMSC) is a vibrant community support service, set up in October 2012 to identify and improve the legal position and personal well-being of migrants – irrespective of their status – living in or near the London Borough of Haringey. We have a particular focus on those migrants who are unable to access advice or support elsewhere, making our service absolutely essential to some of the most vulnerable members of our society.

We provide a weekly triaging service, followed by appointments, offering free, high quality advice on immigration, housing, community care and welfare issues, along with a follow up casework service, as well as giving social and practical support. We have a proactive, enthusiastic and talented volunteer support base, who – led by our skilful and dedicated staff – enable us to carry out a high quality and effective service on a shoestring budget.

Every year, we support many hundreds of migrants. We help them to receive the support and advice they need, and to access the services to which they are entitled. The work we do has a transformative effect on the lives of adults, children and families.

In our first 6 years we have helped thousands of migrants receive the support and advice they need, and to access the services to which they are entitled.

HMSC is recruiting an Immigration Adviser

The Immigration Adviser is part of the core staff at HMSC and will work alongside the Destitution Coordinator, the Centre Manager, the Caseworker and a small team of Legal Support Volunteers.  The post holder will oversee and coordinate the delivery of high quality immigration advice and assistance to HMSC visitors, where it falls outside of remit of other projects running in parallel.

All applicants must be eligible to work in the UK, and are requested to declare any unspent convictions within their application. A person’s criminal record will not, in itself, debar that person from being appointed to this post. Suitable applicants will not be refused posts because of offences which are not relevant to, and do not place them at or make them a risk in, the role for which they are applying. It is however important that applicants understand that failure to disclose all unspent convictions could result in disciplinary proceedings or dismissal.

Please see our Application Pack for details of the job and the application process. Position open for applications.

We encourage applications from people with migrant and refugee backgrounds.
