About the role

Cornwall VSF is looking for an Engagement Officer to effectively engage with a diverse range of VCSE organisations and stakeholders in Cornwall working in the refugee, asylum, migration and inclusion thematic agendas.   

Cornwall VSF’s role is to connect, support and promote the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.  We have strong productive relationships with a wide range of stakeholders in Cornwall including a range of public sector organisations.

Working with VCSE partners, you will identify gaps in the service offer work and work with Cornwall Council, local NHS partners and the VCSE to fill these gaps, building strong and trusted relationships with VCSE organisations working in the refugee and asylum thematic area.

This role would suit someone already working in the VCSE sector and a secondment from one of our partner organisations would be considered for the right candidate.
