Co-Director (part-time, job share) to co-lead Migration Exchange (MEX), an informal network of independent funders. MEX aims to improve the lives of people who migrate, and receiving communities in the UK, by informing public debate on migration and supporting welcoming communities.
Migration Exchange (MEX) is an informal network of independent funders. Established a decade ago, and hosted at Global Dialogue since 2015, MEX aims to improve the lives of people who migrate, and receiving communities in the UK, by informing public debate on migration and supporting welcoming communities.
There are brilliant organisations and people around the UK working on issues of migration, integration and refugee protection, and polls show broader public support for immigration than ever before. Yet people are forced to navigate a deliberately dysfunctional, hostile immigration and nationality system and face huge challenges of structural racism, inequality, and injustice. To try to address this, MEX developed a vision of an immigration system that welcomes newcomers, treats people with dignity and respect, and which has public confidence and consent.
MEX works collaboratively and strategically with a wide range of partners including charities, academics, think tanks, journalists and other funder networks in the UK and Europe. Our achievements include:
Aligning funding and analysis through the network, leading to the formation of key infrastructure including The Migration Observatory, British Future and IMIX;
Developing a COVID-19 response programme, Respond and Adapt, for the migration sector distributing over £2.4m to 130 organisations across the UK;
Developing a Leadership for Social Change programme tailored to emerging and established migration sector leaders, with a focus on lived experience
This is a key moment
The movements and changes in public opinion galvanised by the Windrush scandal, the Black Lives Matter movement, and an end to free movement after Brexit have all had major impacts on this agenda. That is why we need a more ambitious mission and strategy that will build on our achievements and enable us to create and build ever stronger and more effective collaborations, partnerships, and networks. In order to meet these opportunities Global Dialogue is now recruiting a Co-Director (part-time, job share) who will work in partnership with Sarah Cutler to shape and lead this strategy and its delivery.
