Lived Experience Campaigns Coordinator

Location: E2, London

Salary expectation: £32,210 pro rata

Application deadline: Tue 27th October

This is a part-time role

We’re very excited to announce this role specifically for someone with lived experience of the UK’s immigration detention system.

Detention Actions aim is to promote the welfare and rights of people in immigration detention in the UK in the UK and elsewhere. We provide support and advice to people in detention in the London area and advocate for detention reform.

We campaigned for an end to the Detained Fast Track asylum process, successfully bringing a strategic legal challenge which led to the suspension of the process in 2015 and we continue to campaign against its re-introduction.  In 2020, we have brought several prominent legal challenges, preventing the removal of those due to be deported on a charter flight to Jamaica in February, and pressurized the Government into releasing the majority of people detained during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lived experience work informs our campaigning work and service delivery. It is essential for this role that you have lived experience of immigration detention. If you’re not sure if this applies to you, please get in touch!

Deadline: Tue 27th October
