Individuals with a commitment to work in publicly funded immigration and asylum in particular will benefit from both the casework and administrative experience gained in terms of pursuing future careers as a solicitor or at the Bar.
We particularly welcome applications by individuals from under-represented groups within the profession, including individuals with lived experience of the immigration system, individuals with a disability, and individuals from a less privileged background.
This is a fixed-term 1-year contract.
