|Job Title||Advice and Information Volunteers - EXPIRED|
|Salary||Reasonable travel and lunch expenses covered|
|Job Published||10 Apr 2017|
|Contact Name||Volunteers Team|
Liberty is currently looking for dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to assist its Advice and Information team. Volunteers will conduct legal research and draft responses to queries from members of the public regarding a wide variety of human rights and civil liberties issues. Most often these include the following areas:
Applicants must either have completed a law degree or be studying for (or have completed) a post-graduate legal qualification, such as the Bar Professional Training Course or Legal Practice Course.
Volunteers are expected to commit to one day per week (flexible working patterns i.e. two half days, will be considered) and for a minimum of three months. We have a policy of not retaining volunteers for longer than 6 months and never for more than one day per week or the equivalent thereof. Liberty does not pay its volunteers but does cover lunch expenses (up to £5 a day) and travel expenses (up to the value of a zone 1-6 travel card).
Interested applicants should also refer to the person specification and complete the application form for this role. The deadline for applications is: 12 noon on Monday 24 April 2017. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
We expect to hold interviews on Tuesday 2 May 2017 and Wednesday 3 February 2017 and a training afternoon on Friday 5 May 2017. Please bear this in mind when submitting your application.
The interview process will involve consideration and discussion of a pre-interview exercise which will relate to those areas of law in which we most commonly advise. The exercise does not require specific knowledge but will be used to assess the ability to identify and analyse potential legal issues.
We are happy to consider holding interviews by Skype, where necessary.
If you require any reasonable adjustments in order to submit your application and/or attend an interview, please do not hesitate to let us know.
We value diversity at TPP and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
