Navigating a maze made out of the words Right to Remain

Exciting times for Right to Remain – we are looking for three brilliant people to work with us! We are recruiting a Director; a Legal Education Officer; and a These Walls Must Fall organiser (Liverpool).

The Director and Legal Education Officer roles are new positions, as our coordinator Lisa moves on next year after more than ten years at the helm of the organisation (and we’ve had a bit of a rejig in the process).

You can find all the info here (including how to contact us if you’d like to discuss any of the roles further).

(1) Director

Right to Remain is seeking a dynamic, effective and enterprising leader to become its new Director. Right to Remain is a small charity, famous for its accessible resources and workshops on the asylum and immigration system, and grassroots campaigning led by people with direct experience of the injustices of the legal system and the broader Hostile Environment.

The Director of Right to Remain will provide leadership and management of the organisation in a wide-ranging role that includes representing the organisation in the public domain, as well as administration and financial management. Working closely with the board of trustees, the Director will ensure the work of the organisation is contributing to its long-term strategy, will develop and review budgets and future business plans, will sustain and grow funding, and will increase awareness of the organisation and its work. The Director will, with the Board, ensure that the organisation complies with the law and regulations. The Director will act as ambassador for the organisation, building relationships with stakeholders in other organisations, and where appropriate being the public face of the organisation. The director will also play a key role in motivating and engaging staff, beneficiaries and prospective donors.
