Job description

Have you got a passion for justice and a flair for creative communication?

We are looking for a highly articulate and driven communications specialist who can bring their expertise and imagination to a vital cause.

Working in a small, energetic, friendly and busy team, you will be able to make a significant and positive contribution from the start. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to have a real impact on all of our communications and marketing.

You will relish the challenge of developing propositions that tell meaningful stories of the difference that good free legal support can make. 

Flexible working hours/days are available to fit around childcare or other needs, including some homeworking. 

About Us

London Legal Support Trust’s core aim is to ensure free legal advice providers in London and the South East continue to exist so that they can provide vital and life-changing legal advice to people who otherwise would not afford to access or defend their rights.

Access to justice is a fundamental right. Without it, people are at risk in almost every aspect of their lives, from employment to housing and everything in between. We exist to ensure that everyone has access to appropriate legal support when they most need it – and that lack of financial means is not a barrier. 

Our partners, the legal advice centres, provide services to help thousands of people every year to access justice and have their voices heard.   

- We support law centres and other legal advice agencies in London and the Home Counties by providing them with grant funding alongside other forms of support.  

- We offer our knowledge and experience in the sector to help the agencies become more sustainable.

- We also work in partnership with other grant-making bodies. During COVID 19, we have been working with over 60 funders through London Emergency Response to get vital funds out to the charities and civil society organisations to help people that face challenges such as lack of food, isolation, debt, homelessness, domestic violence and mental health.  

We raise funds for all of this work predominantly through mass participation fundraising events, most notably the London Legal Walk, which is the biggest event fundraiser in the legal calendar.

About the role

We are recruiting a Communications and Marketing Officer to develop and implement the charity’s communications strategy. 

The post will work closely with senior staff to manage internal and external communications and marketing campaigns to raise the profile of the charity, our events and our giving campaigns to engage new audiences and existing stakeholders.

This is an exciting time to join the team as we have recently invested in diversifying our fundraising, and we know that to be successful, we must raise our profile in the legal community and beyond.
