Burnt out with billing targets and relentless time-recording? Escape both, by working for ASAP, and enjoy a very varied role, representing appellants at the Asylum Support Tribunal and lots of collaborative working.
This is an exciting opportunity to lead ASAP’s well-respected legal work defending and promoting the rights of asylum-seekers to access food and shelter (asylum support) in the UK, in a varied and rewarding role. You will be part of a committed team of staff and volunteer legal advisors, solicitors and barristers who provide free legal representation for asylum seekers at the First-tier Tribunal (Asylum Support) through our award-winning duty scheme, making a daily tangible difference to the lives of people seeking asylum in the UK. You will be at the forefront of analysing and reacting to emerging asylum support issues affecting destitute asylum-seekers; with the potential for generating significant positive change for this group through contributing to ASAP’s policy work and leading on strategic litigation. You will develop and share ASAP’s unrivalled expertise in this area by contributing to and overseeing the quality of our legal information and training for our volunteers, staff and front-line advisors around the UK.
We are looking for candidates who are confident, multi-skilled team players. You must be resilient, adaptable, able to work at a high level across ASAP’s different work streams and committed to ASAP’s vision and values.
