About the role

We are currently looking for a committed and passionate individual to join the Street Legal team as an Immigration Link Worker, embedded within the Rough Sleeping Services in Bristol.

Street Legal tackles rough sleeping through a combination of immigration advice, temporary housing and training for the homelessness and migration sectors. During this process people are helped to access temporary accommodation at St Mungo’s, support services and healthcare. They also receive food, clothing, toiletries and travel support.

  • As an Immigration Link Worker, you will respond to referrals and carry out comprehensive strength-based assessments, considering the requirements under current immigration rules, provisions for immigration advice and agreed timeframes.
  • You will organise and facilitate initial consultations with immigration advice service providers in a way that effectively encourages engagement, and promotes opportunities for clients to resolve their immigration matters.
  • Working in partnership with specialist staff and external partners you will be responsible for supporting the working shift pattern of the service, whilst overseeing case load of clients.
  • You will work flexibly in different settings, including St Mungo’s offices or on street outreach shifts.

About you

To succeed in this highly rewarding role you will have an understanding of the issues faced by homeless or vulnerably housed people, or you may have had personal experience of homelessness yourself.

  • You will have some experience of helping vulnerable people to identify personal goals and supporting them through a process of change.
  • A sound understanding of the support needs of people with unresolved or pending immigration status, No Recourse to Public Funds, low incomes, and professional boundary issues is essential for this role.
  • Good communication skills and the ability to work with others whilst managing your own time.
  • Above all we are looking for inspirational, committed individuals who have a genuine desire to support people to transform their lives.
