Job Vacancies

GMWRAG has periodically advertised posts on behalf of our members in the past but we thought it would be useful to set this up as a permanent page rather than the individual posts we’ve done in the past. The advice sector has been contracting but keep looking and we’re sure that from time to time you’ll spot things appearing here.

GMWRAG asks for a payment of £50 if you would like to place an advert. That’s £50 per advert rather than per post. We think that’s a bargain. Please note that if you advertise a post here we will be able to advise on the number of views your page had. If you provide us with documents for people to download from this site and not just your own e.g. application packs, then we will also be able to give you an idea of how many times people went on to download them.

New vacancies are announced by an update to this page; and a post on the main page of the site. If you subscribe to the site (which requires no more than your email address) then you will receive an automatically generated email every time there is a new post on the site. 

LATEST VACANCIES – UPDATED on the 25th of September 2020

PLP is recruiting – Welfare Rights Hub Coordinator.

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, the 12th of October 2020.
