Background to the role

NACCOM was established in 2006 to support organisations that provide asylum seekers, refugees, and other migrants with housing and other assistance to prevent their destitution. The network has grown to represent 50 member organisations housing over 1,700 people last year. Having reviewed our vision and strategy, the Board of Trustees and existing staff have agreed plans to:

  • increase our support to strengthen and maximise existing members impact;
  • encourage further growth in capacity within the network by attracting new members to join/start up and;
  • develop an advocacy and campaigning strategy working in partnership with others to reduce the effects of destitution.

Who are we looking for?

The National Director will be responsible for delivering and developing our vision and strategy, building on the transition that the organisation has already undergone. They will add strategic leadership, additional capacity and support to the staff team of two people and Board of Trustees.

We are looking for someone; with a passion for social justice, with excellent organisational and communication skills with a wide variety of stakeholders; and who can see the big picture as well as having an attention to detail.

They will lead by example and be committed to supporting other organisations reach their full potential, representing a growing sector to influence policy and opinion formers for the benefit of destitute asylum seekers, refugees and other migrants.

This is an exciting role for an ambitious and tenacious individual who wants to shape the future development of the organisation, to make a big difference to the lives of increasing numbers of vulnerable people and those that support them.
