Looking to address systemic unfairness in the welfare benefits system?

Public Law Project (PLP) is searching for an adviser/lawyer to coordinate our innovative new welfare benefits support hub, which will sit within our award-winning casework team. We want someone who enjoys working collaboratively and is excited about using the law creatively, with a detailed understanding of the welfare benefits system. The role is open to specialist welfare benefits advisers and qualified lawyers.

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. We work consistently at the leading edge of access to justice issues and there is always lots of scope for development. Recent high-profile cases have engaged with diverse issues such 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 – particularly at the moment – and means that our lawyers are able to work creatively to achievable income targets.

Please email all completed applications to PLP’s HR team by no later than 11.59pm on Monday, 12th October.
