Brushstrokes is an award winning project in partnership with Father Hudson’s Care, The Infant Jesus Sisters and the parish of St Philip Neri, Smethwick. The project is well established with a proven track record in supporting refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Sandwell and surrounding areas.

With an understanding of issues, legislation and policies connected with refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, candidates need to have an up to date working knowledge of asylum support, welfare, housing and immigration.

Candidates are required to have knowledge and experience of case management systems, service reporting, monitoring and evaluation, along with compliance with advice quality standards/regulated activity e.g. OISC and the ability to partnership work. The successful candidate will be committed to working with people from differing social and cultural backgrounds and committed to the project’s ethos of ‘Welcoming the Stranger’.

An Enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure & Barring Service will be requested by FHC if appointed.
