Afghan Citizens’ Information Service (ACIS) - Pilot

Scottish Refugee Council are delighted to announce that we have received an award from The National Lottery Community Fund, made possible by National Lottery players, to establish the Afghan Citizens’ Information Service.

Hundreds of Afghans seeking safety from the regime change in their home country are being relocated to Scotland under various relocation and resettlement schemes, announced by the UK Government. The majority of Local Authorities in Scotland have engaged in the Afghan resettlement schemes and several have already received families in their communities. As a result, there is a demand from individuals, communities and refugee supporting organisations for information, advice and practical support.

To address this issue, we intend to establish a pilot Information Line service which will operate for 12 months to provide social integration information to newly arrived Afghans. The service will be operated by individuals with lived experiences and fluent in Dari and Pashtu as front-line staff for the service.

We are currently recruiting a number of Information Line Call-handlers (part time maximum 21.6 hours per week, but negotiable for people who want to work less hours) to join our Communities Team based in Glasgow on a fixed term contract up to 31/3/2023. These positions are funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, made possible by National Lottery players.

We are looking for people with a General Education to GCSE / Standard Grade or equivalent level and a good command of the English language, both verbal and written. In addition, we are looking for people with a lived experience of seeking refuge in Scotland who want to help others with similar experiences to settle in their new homes. Ideally, you will be fluent in Dari and/or Pashto.

Initially, the service will operate between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday and will be delivered with the call-handlers, once trained, working from home. We will evolve the service, if and when required, to extend these hours allowing you to work more flexibly around family and other commitments.

We are looking for people who are friendly, committed and diligent but also willing to be flexible and adaptable to meet the evolving needs of the service.

It is currently understood that the Service will be delivered from Glasgow which will be your base location. Good personal and time management skills will be essential as you will be operating remotely from the project, your fellow call-handlers, your manager and your colleagues.
