We’re looking for someone special to lead and develop our new employment law service. We’re delighted to have the chance to extend our services to our East End community in this way, particularly since we know that more and more people will need legal advice about employment rights as the Covid 19 crisis continues.
For the moment, we are offering the post as a fixed-term contract for one year (although we’re open to discussion about the length). During that time, we want the appointee to identify and grow sources of funding for the future (including a legal aid Discrimination Law contract) that will sustain both the post and the service far into the future. You’ll notice that the Job Description expresses the role as leading and supervising a team, which reflects our ambition for both you and the service – but on appointment, you’ll be our sole employment lawyer.
For the moment, Covid-19 means that our team is working remotely from the law centre for most of the time. Interviews for this post are likely to be held using Zoom and you should be prepared to work remotely if appointed.
