About the role and how to apply:

The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) has worked for over 50 years to support international students and the institutions, students’ unions and organisations who work closely with them.

UKCISA seeks an Advice and Training Officer to join its small specialist team. The team analyses, advises and delivers training on all aspects of international student policy, regulations and legislation. This most notably relates, but is not exclusive to, the immigration rules applicable to international students and their family members, employment during and after study and tuition fee assessment. UKCISA is regulated by the OISC for its provision of immigration advice.

You will need to know how to process and analyse relevant areas of law, alongside government policy and guidance, into written items for international students, professionals working with international students and the general public. In addition, you will be able to identify issues in law and other government materials which need to be clarified or prioritised for lobbying the relevant government department. You will develop working relationships with government departments, official bodies, educational institutions and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). We are seeking candidates with experience in providing accurate and appropriate advice in a professional capacity, who are able to deliver this advice to a variety of audiences. You will be creative and confident in presenting complicated areas of law and guidance accurately and clearly, translating information into interactive and engaging training materials for varying levels of expertise.
