SummaryThe Project Lead will oversee with the support of the Operations Director the volunteer group supporting a refugee family.
Detailed description

This role is the most important role for the day-to-day functioning of the Community Sponsorship Group. This person (or people in a job share) will be working closely with the Operations Director at CHARIS in managing the volunteer Group and ensuring the safety and care of the family through each of the support services that we deliver. This role requires a character who is good in a crisis and able to be flexible under changing circumstances. Experience of working with vulnerable people is incredibly helpful for this role. This role does not involve knowing every single detail, it is good to delegate to the Volunteer team leads, however, a solid understanding of each of the roles and the family wellbeing will be required.
