Citizens Advice is recruiting a Housing Expert
Do you want to work for an organisation that makes a difference, every single day, to people from all walks of life? The people that turn to Citizens Advice need help overcoming an obstacle in their lives – from debt to evictions to trouble at work – and you can be key to them getting the support they need in the quickest, easiest, and most effective way.
We are looking for a Housing Expert to join our Expert Advice Team. This is a permanent post, under which you will provide legal and advice expertise in housing law to Citizens Advice internal teams and to the Citizens Advice network of local offices. You will work with colleagues across the organisation to support the delivery of housing advice required to meet our service objectives. The post is being funded in order to provide expert support with a focus on homelessness and eviction advice content prioritised because of cost of living pressures. We are also aiming to build capacity to support the development of the organisation’s advice strategy.
This role is based in a team of high-performing subject matter experts and qualified lawyers. The postholder must have an interest in law and experience of legal research, but a law degree is not a requirement and you don’t need to be a qualified solicitor or barrister. Many of our team come from a casework advice background. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is of strategic importance within the organisation and recognised as integral to all we do as a service.
