Protecting the right to life, liberty, free speech, fair trials and equal treatment - just an ordinary day at the office.
Liberty is one of the most well-known campaigning organisations in the UK and our success depends on the talent and commitment of our staff, and the support of many dedicated volunteers.
Advice and Information Officer
Liberty is currently recruiting an Advice & Information Officer to join its Public Advice and Information Team. Advice & Information Officers are responsible for processing and responding to requests for advice and assistance from members of the public directly and/or via an online legal information platform which we intend to develop. The A&I officers identify suitable queries to refer to in-house lawyers. They are also responsible for the recruitment and training of legal volunteers and give talks in schools, community groups etc. on Liberty’s main campaigning objectives.
The successful candidate will be legally trained, holding at the very minimum an LLB, PGDL or equivalent qualification. Your research skills must be of a very high standard and you must have had some former experience of advice provision.
Deadline for applications is 12noon on Friday 14th April 2017. Late applications will not be accepted.
In the post-Brexit, post-Trump world when threats to the Human Rights Act remain real and our communities are more divided than ever, Liberty is looking for an experienced, innovative and ambitious Advocacy Director to develop and implement our long-term strategy; run high-profile, creative campaigns; manage multi-disciplinary teams; forge collaborative partnerships; reach new audiences; influence across the political spectrum; and keep Liberty at the cutting edge of human rights work.
If you have a track record of running creative campaigns or delivering innovative projects and if you are passionate about human rights and want to make a difference, we want to hear from you.
