Business Support Officer
We are currently recruiting for a Business Support Officer to work in Reigate. The crisis in Ukraine and conflicts in Afghanistan and Syria and beyond have led to the displacement of millions of people across the world. Reigate and Banstead Borough Council have made a commitment – and stand ready – to meet the needs of refugees. This post – within our Leisure and Intervention Service – is the business support element of our co-ordinated support to Ukrainian guests who have come to live within the borough as a result of their displacement.
The Ukrainian visa schemes are made possible by ‘sponsors’ who offer space within their homes or a self-contained property for ‘guests’ to reside in. We provide support to, and communicate with, both guests and their sponsors.
You will participate in an induction training programme and benefit from regular role specific supervision on taking up the post. This is an excellent opportunity for professional development and to make a real difference within the local community.
