Job description

Could you help us build a movement for social change?

The Law Centres Network is the national voice of Law Centres, speaking out for access to justice for all.

Currently, justice is in great demand but in short supply. The rights of ordinary people – renters, workers, people with disabilities, black and brown people – are under threat, as is our ability to protest or to hold government to account.

To make our rights count – to make us count – we want to engage more people in pushing back against this threat and demanding social justice. Can you help us?  

We are looking for a passionate and articulate person to join us as Communications Officer.

You will be a professional with some experience and willingness to learn and develop.  You will be a creative and compelling communicator, who is up for a challenge. You will also be able to drive your own work, as well as supporting the team and sometimes member Law Centres. Work can be fast-paced and requires emotional intelligence and an eye for detail.

The Communications Officer role is diverse and offers a good opportunity to make your mark. Some of your work objectives will be planned and others will emerge over time. You will work with news media and social media, produce reports and other publications, and have a chance to develop our public presence in new ways.

The role is initially for one year full-time with the potential for it to be extended.

You will be joining a small and dedicated team, based mainly in central London but currently working remotely from home. Our work atmosphere is friendly and informal but diligent.

Last year we celebrated 50 years of Law Centres in the UK, and we are working hard to make sure that many more follow. Observers have commented that we punch well above our weight. Help us show them how much more we can do!
