About the role:
The EU Settlement Scheme project is designed to ensure that eligible people are able to access ILR (or pre settled status) via the quickest route possible. In addition, we wish to improve and empower digital skills in the community and also enable people to help others to apply. We wish to ensure that the service is available to the most vulnerable clients, while empowering and enabling people in the community to apply themselves and for others where that is appropriate. This role will also explore how we ensure all our services are using technology to its best potential and utilising digital solutions to best meet the needs of our clients. This will involve exploring new ideas and innovations.
You will work with the wider community, including public institutions (such as schools) to help empower applicants to make their own EU Settlement Scheme applications. Teaching and coaching them via training sessions such as offsite workshops. You will help develop processes to ensure all data captured is accurate and then produce reports to our commissioning partner, Crisis, including but not limited to the number of people supported and number of applications completed.
You will have strong computer literacy and communications skills ensuring you can develop strong relationships and partnerships with both service users and other organisations. You are able to sensitively engage with and empower adults who are EU nationals and experience social exclusion.
