Law Centres defend the legal rights of people who cannot afford a lawyer.

We are specialist legal professionals working in our local community to uphold justice and advance equality.

The immigration team in Southwark Law Centre delivers specialist legal advice and assistance including outreach, telephone and email advice to frontline advice agencies and casework including appeals and judicial review. The need for our services has never been greater. This post is part funded by a grant from Children in Need.

The successful applicant will have two years recent, professional experience of providing immigration casework in a legal or advice setting and Law Society Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Level 2 or higher. 

You will also demonstrate an understanding of the immigration advice issues affecting children and young people.

Experience of Legal Aid processes is desirable, but our organisation is not solely reliant on Legal Aid and we offer a high level of experience and expertise that can support professional development within the team.

We will consider more junior caseworkers for the role or a very experienced highly skilled lawyer able to take a role in the supervision of others.
