JCWI (London) - Families Together Initiative Project Officer

The Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) is an independent national charity.

Our incredible policy and campaigns team are currently recruiting a full-time Project Officer to coordinate all aspects of our policy and campaigning work focusing on the post-2012 family migration rules which currently prevent tens of thousands of non-EEA spouses, children and adult dependent relatives from joining their family in the UK.

The position is for 12 months with a possible renewal subject to funding. The salary is £29,943.
