As a Caseworker, you will be allocated specifically to the Hackney Afghan Resettlement service and will be responsible for intensive casework, meeting key performance indicators set by Hackney Council. The work will include supporting families to set up homes with furniture, supporting with accessing services such as schools, GP’s, and making phone calls, advocating on behalf of the families.
