Safe Passage International recrute 01 Responsable Plaidoyer et Communication

Safe Passage International is looking for a “Responsable de plaidoyer et communication France” to develop and deliver our growing campaigns and communications work in France, building on the organisation’s strong record of creating diverse coalitions of public support and delivering system change for our beneficiaries.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a ground-breaking team and build its advocacy profile in France to win change on refugee issues.

You will have a track-record of developing and delivering impactful campaigns and a strong understanding of different campaigning methods, such as public affairs, grassroots community organising, and digital campaigns.

You will be joining at a critical time in our work, helping to lead the campaign to stop the removal of safe and legal routes to the UK for refugees in Europe when Britain leaves the EU.

Who we are

Working at Safe Passage means working at a different sort of charity. We’re small, nimble and laser-focused on the impact that only we can make.

Safe Passage was founded in late 2015 in response to the refugee situation in Europe. In the past four years, we have grown from a small project of the charity Citizens UK, to a separate international organisation. We now comprise 23 members of staff based in the UK, France, and Greece, supporting refugees and migrants to access safe and legal routes to asylum across Europe.

Our team in France is constituted by the Director of France, a casework coordinator for the Paris area and a casework and advocacy coordinator for the north of France.

  • Our vision is for every person seeking asylum to be able to access a safe and legal route to a place where they can lead a full and dignified life.
  • We do things differently – championing refugees’ rights by combining strategic legal work, advocacy, capacity building and community organising.
  • We are focused on achieving systemic change in refugee and asylum policy at both nation-state and international level.

To date over 2,000 individuals have travelled to safety through routes we have opened. Our work is recognised with awards from Liberty, Sheila McKechnie, the European Parliament and EU Commission.  We were also chosen as one of The Guardian’s ‘Charity of the Year’ in 2016.
