Harrow Law Centre provides specialist legal advice and representation to combat disadvantage, discrimination and exclusion. We also work to influence local and national policy to improve public services for the most vulnerable. We use the law not only to resolve the legal problem for the individual but to achieve wider change.
We have recently received funding to start a tribunal representation unit at Harrow Law Centre and we now want to appoint an additional welfare benefits specialist. The person appointed will represent clients at Social Security Tribunals and also be required to support and train volunteers to undertake some tribunal work.
We have small premises in a vibrant community setting in the north-west London borough of Harrow. The work is varied and challenging and we have a happy working environment with ten staff. We specialize in social welfare law and hold Legal Aid contracts in Community Care, Housing, Immigration/Asylum, Public Law and Welfare Benefits.
Harrow Law Centre is striving to ensure our workplace reflects our principles of equality and fairness. We therefore operate a system of pay parity for all staff and applicants must be committed to this principle.
The salary offered is £35,500 p.a. for a full-time role of 35 hours per week. We will consider job shares or part-time applications.
