Senior Policy and Project Officer
The Refugee Hub was founded at the University of Ottawa in 2012. Our mission is to foster justice and human rights for refugees at local, national, and international levels through innovative research, programs and partnerships. We are supported in our work by a team of in-house experts, a wide range of consultants, and a broad and diverse community of partners and stakeholders.
The Refugee Hub is also a partner in the Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative (GRSI), a unique and ambitious multi-stakeholder collaboration that encourages and supports the creation of new community sponsorship programs around the world with the aim of increasing and improving overall refugee resettlement, strengthening local host communities, and improving the narrative surrounding newcomers. Our other partners in the GRSI include the Government of Canada, the UNHCR, the Open Society Foundations, the Giustra Foundation, and the Shapiro Foundation.
As part of its engagement within the GRSI, the Refugee Hub Europe has been awarded an Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) Grant to be part of a multi-stakeholder consortium of CSOs, Governments, Universities and UNHCR offices to design, pilot and implement innovative policies, practices and tools to foster the link between Community Sponsorship and Complementary Pathways in Italy, Belgium, and Ireland. The Refugee Hub will provide support to all 3 countries in developing policies and building relevant ecosystems.
The Refugee Hub is seeking a Senior Policy and Project Officer to support the delivery of the AMIF project under the supervision of the Global Advisor on Sponsorship Development. Beyond supporting the delivery of the AMIF project, the successful candidate will contribute to the wider portfolio of the Global Advisor, advancing wider strategies on community sponsorship, complementary pathways and resettlement, conducting policy research and drafting, and delivering specific thematic and country-oriented projects.
We seek a highly organized and self-motivated person who is a skilled policy analyst and project officer excelling at relationship management, problem- solving and multi-tasking in a fast-paced environment. The successful candidate should also demonstrate a high degree of professionalism, discretion, tact and responsibility, including when managing various files with little supervision.
This is a remote work position based in Europe/UK within the range of Western European to Central European Standard Time.
