The ideal candidate will be required to provide accurate information and advice to a wide audience of people including service users, internal and external stakeholders, immigration services and medical and legal professionals.

In carrying out your duties you will apply your knowledge of immigration, human rights and social care legislation to the work of the team and the assessments and reviews that you undertake.
