We’re looking for a housing solicitor/caseworker to help work on our Legal Aid Agency contract covering legal help, certificated cases and representation at court as part of the duty solicitor scheme. You’ll need to have at least one year’s experience of advising and assisting in housing law (if you are a solicitor, not all of this experience needs to be post qualification), together with a talent for explaining complex legal ideas in simple language and the ability to manage a demanding workload.
To apply, head to our jobs page and download an application pack.
The closing date for applications is Sunday 16 April 2023.
United Impact is a group of 56 people supported by Project 17, with lived experience of the devastating ‘No Recourse to Public Funds’ (NRPF) policy. In a joint ‘Photovoice’ project with Dr Jasber Singh from Coventry University, United Impact have worked to produce a photo exhibition looking at the negative effects of the NRPF policy and the hostile environment on the group’s lives. The exhibition is designed to create a space for reflection and dialogue about NRPF, to raise awareness and create change.
Visit the exhibition on 28th and 29th March in Ilford, London. See an overview of the work and find booking details here.

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.

Completed applications should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date, Sunday 01 November 2020.
