We are researchers, lawyers, communicators, trainers, and public law policy experts. The aim of our work is to make sure that state decision-making is fair and lawful, that people can access their rights, so that anyone can hold the state to account. For over 30 years we have represented and supported those people marginalised through poverty, discrimination, or disadvantage when they have been affected by unlawful state decision-making. We have shown leadership in access to justice in the UK and have helped developed the law and how the law is used by civil society. (PLP’s) programme of events is prestigious, impactful, and highly acclaimed. Ranging from round tables for front line organisations, high profile thought-leading conferences for lawyers, researchers, academics, NGOs, campaigners, and policy experts, through to public legal education aimed at civil society and community activists. The post-holder will play a crucial role in the efficient functioning and development of PLP’s events program and will be line managed by the Events Manager, working closely with the Events and Communications team, and across the organization. You will be a great organiser with a proven track record in either events and training, or in a clearly transferable area. You will be committed to delivering events that advance understanding of how to use the law to hold Government to account and improve access to justice. You will demonstrate excellent, proactive partnership working and development, excellent customer service, and the ability to envision using events to advance PLP’s vision and mission. Although no previous experience in public law is required, a willingness to steer, learn, collaborate and deliver is essential. We are looking for someone with great events, practical ability, and a curious mind about what PLP does and wants to achieve, and how events can help deliver that. This role is fulltime (though we may consider 4 days a week in special circumstances or for the right candidate) and is based at our London Office. Some homeworking is welcomed. As part of our commitment to recruit fairly we use anonymised-selection processes until interview, offer additional interview opportunities to the highest-scoring candidates from under-represented communities, and use ‘tie-breaker’ provisions at all stages of our selection process.
