This is an exciting opportunity to join the Anti Trafficking and Labour Exploitation Unit’s award winning legal team in a maternity cover role.

The successful candidate will join ATLEU’s team of lawyers who provide specialist representation to survivors of trafficking and work on emerging issues affecting survivors, often involving strategic litigation and working with partners to effect change for this hugely vulnerable group.

Our ideal candidate will be a solicitor with a detailed understanding of immigration and public law who is excited to share their practical legal experience with those who provide support and legal services to survivors of trafficking and slavery. The role will suit someone who enjoys using the law creatively and working collaboratively. You will work closely with ATLEU’s specialist solicitors to continue to update, develop and deliver ATLEU’s programme of training and resources and play a key role in delivering ATLEU’s innovative projects, helping to ensure victims of trafficking are identified and access their legal entitlements. As this is maternity cover the role is being advertised as ‘training-only’ role. However, we would also consider applicants who wish to maintain a legal casework practice alongside the training element of the job.

ATLEU has offices in London and Sheffield and we welcome applications to work in either office.

Salary: circa £44,000 London / circa £38,000 Sheffield pro rata, exact starting salary dependent on experience,  for 14 – 21 hours per week (part time) / freelance. We can offer flexible working arrangements.

For further information about the position and how to apply please visit ATLEU’s website here to download the application pack

Closing date for applications: The deadline is 10am on Monday 17th October 2022, however applications will be reviewed as they are received on a rolling basis and we reserve the right to close this advert before the advertised closing date below. Please apply as soon as possible.
