Seraphus is a leading law firm in the area of European citizens’ rights and immigration law. We are seeking to recruit a Senior Caseworker who can join, enhance and contribute to our excellent team.

We will provide training and mentoring in these areas. This is an exciting opportunity to be at the centre of Brexit and the discussions on the future of European migration, to work with high level diplomats and public servants, and to improve the lives of EU citizens.

The candidate will also assist us in the delivery of complex casework on EU citizens rights as well as range of other immigration matters. This work will be delivered remotely and via a range of online legal services delivered in partnership with Free Movement. The candidate will have strong casework experience and knowledge of UK immigration and EU law. 

In all the work that we do our overarching goal is to pursue a human and rights based approach to law, to support those who need our help, and to further the understanding that migration is a benefit and a right for everyone.
