Anti Trafficking and Labour Exploitation Unit
This is an exciting opportunity to join ATLEU, a leading anti-trafficking and human rights charity.
We are looking for a dynamic and committed solicitor to join our legal team as a Housing Solicitor. In this role you will contribute to the development of ATLEU’s work securing support and safe and appropriate accommodation for survivors of trafficking. This is a fantastic role, offering significant opportunities for growth and development, to build a team and increase your housing and public law experience and knowledge through working on emerging issues affecting victims of trafficking, with enormous potential for strategic litigation and effecting change for this hugely vulnerable group.
Within ATLEU, lawyers are able to balance fee-earning work alongside opportunities to research and develop strategic challenges and share their knowledge through developing and delivering training and second-tier advice. This approach offers both excellent skills development and career progression as well as providing the time and space necessary, in an increasingly pressurised legal aid sector, for developing legal challenges which seek to bring about systemic change.
The role involves providing housing and public law advice and representation to survivors of trafficking and slavery under a Legal Aid contract. ATLEU has offices in London and Sheffield and we welcome applications to work in either office.
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.
