PLP is recruiting a Wales lawyer
About the Job
Will you join our award-winning team of public lawyers?
We are looking for a confident and ambitious lawyer who wants to provide public law advice and assistance in Wales. We’d like someone who is able to develop relationships with other advisers, decision makers, and those looking to use the law. You’ll be able to take a creative approach building on PLP’s network in Wales and work collaboratively internally with PLP’s largely London-based casework team, as well as research, events and communication teams.
PLP is a growing and lawyer-led access to justice charity, which was founded in 1991. Our vision is a world in which individual rights are respected and public bodies act fairly and lawfully. We act directly for individuals, and are regularly instructed by law firms, lawyers’ groups, such as the Law Centres Network, NGOs and other public interest organisations. Recent high-profile cases have engaged with issues as diverse as Home Office removals policy, funding for advice services and legal aid, and the recent prorogation of Parliament.
PLP funding comes from a range of sources, including legal aid and charitable grants. Our mixed funding model gives the organisation financial security and stability, and means our lawyers are able to work creatively to achievable income targets. This is a challenging, multi-disciplinary role requiring networking, training and communications skills, all of which we can help the right candidate to develop. You’ll be joining a supportive and committed team in a positive, flexible work environment with a common ethos. You’d be our only lawyer based in Wales, or willing to relocate there, and reporting to PLP’s offices in London.
The deadline for applications for this post is 11.59pm on 20 January 2020.
