We're recruiting for new interns & volunteers!

We confirm there are no career prospects attached to these positions. The intern posts are designed to give exposure to legal graduates who want some insight and experience of social welfare work and an appreciation of a legal specialist funded charity and how it works.

Ideally the interns will be expected to meet the following criteria:
• High quality standards of written and spoken English • An appreciation and acceptance of cultural diversity • Experience of interacting directly with people at various levels • Willingness to be flexible • Willingness to undertake routine and administrative tasks in connection with caseworking when required; • Punctuality and reliability • Confidentiality • Ability to work to deadlines • Ability to work under supervision and to follow directions as and when directed; • Can commit to the position 4 full days per week (or one day as volunteers).
The Law Centre’s business hours are 10am – 5.30 pm. We closed for lunch between 1pm and 2pm every day.
We operate an Equal Opportunities policy and expect that all prospective candidates will be familiar with this at the time of contacting us.
There is a daily stipend (food and travel) for the 4 day per week intern posts.
You can register your interest by submitting a copy of your cv on or before Sunday 6th September 2015, and be prepared to attend an open evening on either Monday 7th or Wednesday 9th September 2015. The evening starts at 7.00 p.m.
