ATLEU is looking for a dynamic and committed individual to join our legal team as a Paralegal to assist our Housing and Public Law solicitors. This is an exciting role, offering opportunities for growth and development, to build your housing and public law experience and knowledge through working on emerging issues affecting victims of trafficking, and effecting change for this hugely vulnerable group. The role involves providing housing and public law advice and representation to survivors of trafficking and slavery under a legal aid contract and will work primarily on housing cases.

We are a friendly, multidisciplinary team and this role offers the opportunity to learn and develop skills under supervision about housing and public law. You would also work alongside colleagues practising immigration, compensation, working in finance, fundraising and operations, and who are involved in cutting edge policy work and improving survivor participation in the sector.

ATLEU welcomes applications from candidates with different levels of experience. This might mean you are at the start of your legal career with limited casework experience or more experienced and currently practising in legal aid with housing or public law experience. If you are at the start of your career or even if you have more experience but are new to working with survivors of trafficking, we welcome your application. We offer internal training for all new starters if they are less familiar with trafficking work.

We are looking for candidates who are intelligent, resilient, exceptional communicators and passionate about ATLEU’s mission and values. We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity and we positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity. We particularly welcome applicants from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, such as individuals from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.

This position offers the right candidate an exceptional opportunity to develop their legal skills and knowledge working with ATLEU’s dynamic legal team.
