The program
Our Migration Support Programs provide help and support to refugees, asylum seekers, immigration detainees and other people who are vulnerable as a result of migration.

We do this through a range of migration programs services and programs that protect and uphold the health, dignity and wellbeing of vulnerable migrants. We also provide services to reconnect family members whose loss of contact is caused by international or internal conflict, war and disaster.

As part of the Migration Support Programs, the Restoring Family Links (RFL) program of Australian Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross Red Crescent global tracing network, and supports people to find and re-establish contact between separated family members as well as working to clarify the fate of the missing.

A strong attention to detail, experience working with databases and an ability to work independently is essential for this role.
