Job description

LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) is a charity which enables access to justice by encouraging and supporting legal pro bono in England and Wales. We work primarily with solicitors, law schools and law students, and other legal and non-legal volunteers and organisations.

Head of Digital Platforms and Projects

£34,000 – £36,000 (full time - p/t pro rata)

Full-time – 35 hours a week (4 days a week, pro rata salary, also available)

LawWorks is looking to recruit to this new project management role to support the delivery, development and potential integration of a number of new pro bono/access to justice platforms/websites.

Homeworking (post-Covid) is available (with some time spent in the office, at events, etc). 

This is an exciting time for LawWorks, building on its expertise in encouraging and supporting pro bono and project delivery.

LawWorks is currently supporting 4 pro bono platforms and digital projects, each with significant potential to enable access to justice through pro bono. The projects are now at a stage that requires additional internal capacity, resource and skills to ensure effective and efficient oversight of the individual projects and (longer term) how they might integrate, as well as how they are managed and developed.

The ideal candidate will bring a demonstrated history of success as a project or programme manager, able to develop and grow the digital projects with strong user engagement in a dynamic environment. We are looking for someone with a proactive style able to balance the delivery of vision and strategic goals, with attention to detail and good communication, management and relationship skills.

The post holder need not have developer or programmer experience but the ability to produce functional and technical development specifications for external software engineers/developers, and others, will be key.

Role purpose:

  • To lead on the effective planning, delivery, maintenance, optimisation and development of pro bono platforms, digital tools, new collaborative ventures and ways of working to enable pro bono and access to justice for those without means.
  • With other LawWorks colleagues, to work with and support external stakeholders in identifying how digital platforms and innovation can enable and enhance service provision and access to justice.

LawWorks is a relatively small organisation with 21 staff, including staff based in Wales and in the English regions. We are a busy and (for our size) complex charity, with a friendly team, a positive ethos, and a commitment to ensuring that LawWorks is a strong and efficient organisation and a great place to work.

More information about the role and how to apply is available on the LawWorks website via the button below.

The deadline for applications is 12.00noon on Monday 1st February.

LawWorks is an equal opportunities employer. We encourage applications irrespective of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability or age.
