Job description

This is an opportunity to be involved in the Kids in Need of Defense UK (KIND UK) programme at the Central England Law Centre (West Midlands). KIND UK is a partnership which provides free, specialist immigration advice and representation for children and young people, and their families. It is a collaboration between Kids in Need of Defense (a US charity), Central England Law Centre, Coram Children’s Legal Centre, MiCLU at Islington Law Centre, Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit and Just Right Scotland. The UK agencies each employ Supervising solicitor(s)/lawyer(s) to provide training, guidance and support to commercial lawyers, who in turn provide the advice service on a pro bono basis.

 

We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic solicitor or senior casework supervisor with expertise in immigration and nationality law to supervise commercial lawyers in providing free legal advice and representation to children, young people and families with out-of-scope immigration and nationality cases.

 

Candidates must be accredited to Level 2 IAAS and should have recent experience of making immigration, asylum and nationality applications and some experience of litigation. You must also have commitment to upholding the human rights of asylum seekers, migrants, and refugees and a commitment to working with migrant children and young people within families so that their voices are heard and so that they can inform the development of this project.

 

The closing date is 12:00PM Wednesday 15 July 2020, with interviews to be held (via Zoom) week commencing 20th July 2020.
