IOM’s experience in numerous countries has found that integration is a two-way process, however, working best when both refugees and those in receiving communities have a good understanding of each other’s expectations, cultural differences, and practices. IOM UK therefore launched its Information Sessions in May 2016 to increase local knowledge of the refugee communities being resettled in the UK, thereby helping to reduce the adjustment period for refugees and supporting strong, appropriate integration services.
To support the continued success of this programme, IOM UK invites United Kingdom residents with knowledge about the culture, life, and society of Sudan, Iraq, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, or Syria to apply for the position of Cross-Cultural Facilitator. Cross-Cultural Facilitators will provide information sessions on the above refugee communities to local authorities and partners participating in resettlement support. We are looking for cross-cultural facilitators available on an on-call basis. Members of the Sudanese, Iraqi, Congolese, Somali, and Syrian communities and female candidates are highly encouraged to apply for this exciting position.
