JUSTICE is recruiting a Legal Fellow

JUSTICE invites applications for a six month fellowship, which is a paid position.

The successful applicant will work closely with our Head of Administrative Justice, primarily to support the delivery of JUSTICE’s Immigration and Asylum Working Party.

The fellowship will provide an opportunity for the successful candidate to develop their research and drafting skills, to liaise and engage with the Working Party members, and to be part of a small, friendly and committed staff.

Given the nature of our work, applications are sought from UK law graduates only. This includes people who expect to have completed a law degree or GDL or are a CILEX graduate by the time they start the fellowship. Applicants should demonstrate an interest in the challenges affecting immigrants and asylum seekers and have an understanding of the immigration and asylum process in the UK. They should have excellent written and spoken communication skills.

We are aiming to fill this position as soon as possible. The fellow will be expected to work full time during this period and will be paid the London Living Wage £17,745 per annum, pro-rata.

To be considered for this fellowship please email a copy of your CV, and a brief covering letter to jobs@justice.org.uk. The covering letter should explain your interest in this position, indicating relevant education, skills and experience, your availability for the fellowship and your future plans. Your CV should include the contact details of two referees.

Please mark your email with ‘Immigration and Asylum Fellowship’ in the subject line.

Closing date: 5pm, Wednesday 4 October 2017
