Job Details

The full role overview and job description is here:


Working Families’ legal advice services (LAS) team works at the forefront of access to justice for parents and carers at work. We run a free legal email and telephone helpline providing bespoke advice to thousands of parents and carers on their rights at work every year. Our comprehensive online advice pages are regularly visited by over 1,000,000 people every year. Our team won the Law Society's In House Team of the Year Excellence in Law Award in 2021 for our work during the pandemic.  

We are looking for an employment rights adviser to join our Legal Advice Service. Ideally, we are looking for an employment lawyer or an experienced employment rights adviser. The role could also suit someone who is not legally qualified but can demonstrate exceptional ability to grasp complex legal issues, and who has experience in advising on employment rights.

We think flexible working should be the norm and this role can be done flexibly. The number of hours worked each week will need to be consistent, and we need applicants who can work a minimum of 22.5 hours each week. We do not require recent employment law experience and actively encourage those people to apply who may have had career breaks or time out of the workforce. 

Closing Date: 26 September 2022
