Expert housing law trainers required
Shelter is recruiting freelance trainers to deliver our nationwide programme of courses. We would like to hear from solicitors, barristers and experienced housing practitioners who can train advanced housing law and homelessness topics.
We are particularly short of experienced trainers based in the Midlands, East Anglia, the North West and North East. However, we are also interested in hearing from advanced level housing law and homelessness trainers in London and the South, especially those with a willingness to travel.
Please visit https://england.shelter.org.uk/professional_resources/shelter_training/our_trainers/become_a_trainer for more details of the topics we are recruiting for and for details of how to apply.
Available for locum work.
I’m a highly experienced housing solicitor caseworker. My present employment ends at the end of October and from 1 November 2019 I’ll be available to work on a temporary basis for any length of contract.
This could be a specific piece of complex casework, perhaps as a member of a team, or temporarily running a caseload for a team member away for a limited or lengthier period, eg maternity or paternity leave or an extended break.
My CV is available on request.
My career as a specialist housing law caseworker spans over 25 years, taking in all the legal aid and procedural changes throughout that period and, of course, all developments in housing law.
I’ve been using CCMS since it was first made compulsory. I’ve a proven track record of making legal aid work and, importantly, pay. I’m highly motivated and care deeply about meeting the legal needs of our client group. I have considerable advocacy experience. I thoroughly enjoy duty scheme work. I also have experience of CFA work including combining a CFA retainer with legal aid where appropriate.
I am also a Shelter trainer and a supervisor at a University Law School Housing Law Clinic. I regularly attend HLPA meetings and conferences and seminars and, of course, read the Nearly Legal blog.
