Vacancies at JUSTICE

Senior Legal Officer (EU)
We are currently recruiting for a Senior Legal Officer (EU). Fuller details are on our website here. The closing date is 20 October. Please forward this on to anyone who may be interested in this position.

There are three internship vacancies. As well as advertising for two winter interns to start in early 2009 (one working on criminal justice, the other on human rights – see here for more information) we are seeking the following:

Intern sought to assist JUSTICE’s director, Roger Smith, in working on the anticipated Constitutional Reform Bill and other issues of policy as well as to provide some administrative assistance in the office. This would be suitable for someone willing to work for a continuous full-time period of six weeks or more or for someone who could offer a set number of days each week over a longer period. The work will involve research on elements in the bill and, if it is delayed, other matters on which JUSTICE is lobbying. It will also require providing daily assistance to Liz Pepler, JUSTICE’s finance officer and administrator, on such matters as answering the phones, answering calls to the door and dealing with post. The post requires a knowledge of law and an understanding of the constitution and, therefore, a law degree or equivalent. To apply send a CV and covering letter to Roger Smith at rsmith@justice.org.uk by 1 November. This post is unpaid but JUSTICE will pay an allowance of £3 a day for lunch and will reimburse reasonable travel costs within the London area.

JUSTICE is an independent, UK based charity which seeks to advance access to justice, human rights and the rule of law.
