Just for Kids Law is a dynamic charity working with and for children and young people to hold those with power to account and fight for wider reform. We do this by providing legal representation and advice, direct advocacy and support, and through strategic litigation, campaigning and equipping others to work for children’s rights.
We are recruiting for a Housing Solicitor to join our busy Legal team which comprises solicitors, barristers and trainee solicitors working in the fields of Youth Justice (Crime), Education, Community Care, Immigration and Public Law.
The Legal team works closely with our Programmes Team to provide holistic support for a range of needs and ensure that the young person’s voice is heard by the professionals supporting them.
Working as part of our small team of lawyers you will provide advice and representation to young people in Housing Law matters. This will include managing your own case load, providing legal advocacy, supporting non-legal advocates, responding to request for advice, providing training to grassroot organisations and working with other organisations in the sector
Just for Kids Law believes in the value of a diverse workforce and encourages applications from people from all ethnic, cultural, religious and social backgrounds: in particular, people from BAME, LGBTQI+, etc. We strive to create a diverse working environment where anyone, regardless of background, can thrive.
Interviews will be held the week commencing 9th December 2019.
