Justice – VACANCY – Public and Administrative Justice Lawyer

Posted August 5th, 2021 by sally

JUSTICE is seeking a new lawyer to join our team. This provides an exciting opportunity for practising lawyers with a strong research background or academic lawyers keen to engage in high-level policy and law reform work. We are looking for a lawyer interested in public and administrative justice, as well as in cross-cutting issues affecting the functioning of the justice system (our recent cross-cutting projects have included work on inquests and inquiries, judicial diversity, the way courts are configured and combatting digital exclusion as courts go online).

The successful candidate will be appointed to a full-time post on a one-year contract, with the likelihood of extension to a permanent basis. The charity operates out of our London Office, but we value and encourage flexible working practices with most staff choosing to work remotely for half of the working week. As well as flexible working our staff enjoy 27 days annual leave pro rata (plus the week between Christmas and the New Year), 8% employer pension contribution (rising to 10.5% after two years), access to an Employee Assistance Programme and a meditation package.

We recruit bright, motivated people who are passionate about system change in the promotion of access to justice and in the fair administration of justice. The successful candidate must be able to work independently and as part of a team. With excellent interpersonal skills, they will be able to work closely with JUSTICE members, who include senior figures in the legal profession. The post holder will work with our Acting Legal Director to develop our public and administrative justice work stream and assist on system-wide proposals for change.

To apply, please send the completed application form with a covering letter to jobs@justice.org.uk. CVs alone will not be considered.
