Thank you for your interest in working with The Separated Child Foundation. We are currently recruiting for the following positions:-

Project Manager (packs project)

This is a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children. Our packs project is well established but we are looking for an experienced Project Manager to explore opportunities and implement development. With the support of a project assistant who will report to you (to be recruited once the Project Manager is in place), you will be responsible for the delivery and expansion of the project, helping us to ensure that separated children receive the physical comfort and welcome they need after they’ve arrived in the UK.

The role will be full of variety involving volunteer management, logistics, planning and development. You will be managed by the Operations Manager, with support from a project assistant and a number of senior volunteers.

The project is based at the Big Yellow Self Storage near Staples Corner in North West London. It is expected that your presence here initially will be required two or three times a week but once the project assistant has been recruited, and once you have established good rapport with the senior volunteers, the majority of your time is expected to be home-based with the regularity of site visits to the Big Yellow to be agreed with the Operations Manager.

Hours – 21 hours per week, with a flexible working pattern to be agreed (working across at least three weekdays to ensure continuity)
Salary – £30,451 FTE

Volunteers for our packing project

Volunteers play a vital role in the delivery of our packing project, preparing packs that will be distributed to unaccompanied child refugees around the UK. Every two weeks, a team meets at the Big Yellow at Staples Corner to create arrival packs and sleep packs, giving dignity and comfort to separated children after their traumatic experiences. We have seen unprecedented demand for packs over the past year and only expect the need to increase.

We would love to hear from potential packing volunteers and Pack Leaders. To find out more about these roles, please visit our volunteering page.
