Description

Migration advisors provide information, guidance and support to non-European Union migrant people, refugees, asylum seekers and displaced persons on the process for their arrival, legalisation, and integration into the society and community of the host country. This advice is of both a legal and social nature, and aims to facilitate the integration process for foreign residents, in the full range of personal issues (cultural, employment, etc.). Similarly, migration advisors perform activities to facilitate foreigners' incorporation and integration into society, raising awareness and promoting interculturalism.

Tasks

    Provide information about and oversee the procedures for family reunification applications.
    Provide legal and administrative advice to companies or individuals who wish to hire migrant people.
    Stay up-to-date with and abreast of all developments and information related to migration legislation and the associated bureacratic processes.
  • Collaborate and liaise with other organisations that provide information and orientation services for migrant people, in order to grant the migrant population access to services and resources that meet their needs.
    Identify formal and informal support networks established by immigrant groups, depending on their countries of origin.

    Monitor and oversee labour integration processes.
  • Bridge the gap between the host society and the different groups that make up the migrant population by performing tasks that foster mutual knowledge, respect and integration between different cultural systems (habits, customs, religion, foklore, values, etc.).
    Provide advice and information to the decision-making departments of those administrative organisations who so request, in order to include the perspective of the different cultures represented by the migrant population in social policies (education, health care, teaching, etc.).
    Provide technical support for professionals from any field whose work involves different cultural groups (teachers, educators, social workers and assistants, etc.) in order to foster a heightened understanding of the cultural systems and values of the groups they deal with.
