This is an exciting opportunity for a Housing Solicitor/Caseworker to join our small, dedicated team at Suffolk Law Centre to help develop and expand our Housing legal advice service, and continue the provision of early legal advice and assistance to help vulnerable clients gain access to justice.
Whilst we are seeking someone who meets or can work towards the Housing Legal Aid Supervisor requirements, we are also interested in hearing from potential candidates who have any housing law experience. Our Housing legal advice service is a core service that we are currently unable to offer to new clients whilst this post remains vacant. We have grant funding to develop our Housing service and we are interested in any candidate wishing to train up to be a Legal Aid Supervisor. As a member of Law Centres Network, we can offer extensive training, development and mutual support.
Whilst this job can be undertaken partially hybrid, it will need attendance at our office and local Courts so cannot be fully remote.
The post is based at our offices in Ipswich, Suffolk. Ipswich has a vibrant legal, non-profit and cultural community and excellent transport links to London. The delights of the Suffolk coast and countryside are within easy reach, and house prices significantly lower than London/home-counties.

Whilst the post is open to all, we are particularly keen to attract candidates who are from backgrounds currently underrepresented in the law, and who may have experienced of some of the issues faced by our clients.
