Advocacy Caseworker

This is an exciting opportunity to join Friends, Families and Travellers’ growing team of Outreach and National Helpline staff who support individuals and families with access to justice and essential services.

Based in our sunny Brighton office, you will provide vital advocacy and information on a wide range of issues for Gypsies and Travellers seeking help through FFT’s national Gypsy & Traveller Advocacy service.

Your skills and values will be more important in this role than your knowledge or specific experience. You will have a strong commitment to human rights, access to justice and client care, and have excellent typing and internet-based research skills.

The role will be diverse and varied – no two days are the same! The people you support will rely on you for advice and guidance, and to advocate for their rights in a relationship founded on trust.

To find out more about this role's key responsibilities and more information, view the Recruitment Information Pack.

To apply, please send a CV and a covering email setting out your suitability for the role in less than 500 words to [email protected]. Please also take the time to fill out an Equalities Monitoring Form.

Closing date: 17:00pm, Monday 10 April 2023

We strongly encourage applications from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people. We will offer an interview to applicants from Gypsy, Roma or Traveller communities who meet the essential criteria for the role.

Become a Trustee

Our Trustees set the direction of our charity and oversee our work.

We aim to have a range of skills and experience on our Board of Trustees. At least half our Trustees are from the travelling communities. We particularly welcome interest from members of the Romany Gypsy and Irish Traveller communities.

A Trustee is an unpaid, voluntary role but we pay travel and subsistence expenses to cover your reasonable costs. Trustees are expected to attend at least 4 of our 6 meetings a year in Brighton. These are on a Saturday and last around 2 hours.

Please note: We are not currently recruiting for Trustees.
