Job Description

Want to use your skills to fight for access to justice? An opportunity exists for a determined, organised and enthusiastic individual to join the casework team. Previous experience assisting vulnerable people and scrupulous attention to detail are a must as you will liaise with pre-volunteered panel of almost 3,800 barristers, clerks and other stakeholders on a daily basis. You will report to a Senior Caseworker and work closely with the dedicated and friendly Advocate team.

About you

We're looking for someone who wants to make a difference to access to justice, through exceptional administrative and organisational skills. We want someone empathetic, and with good communication skills, who understands the vital importance of attention to detail. An awareness of customer service, and the vulnerabilities of the people we exist to help would also be highly valued. Join our friendly, close-knit team, and make a real difference to people facing the justice system alone.

About the charity

Advocate is a national charity which matches volunteer barristers from a panel of almost 4,000 eager to undertake pro bono work with those who need legal assistance but cannot obtain public funding (legal aid) and cannot afford to pay for it. We work in all areas of law, across all courts and tribunals in England and Wales. 

This is a full time permanent role (35 hours) at our busy and friendly office on Chancery Lane.
