Children’s Caseworker / Solicitor (maternity cover)

In 2016, Asylum Aid merged with Migrants Resource Centre, allowing us to increase the size of our legal team. We have now rebranded as Consonant to better reflect the broad scope of our work and emphasise our mission to help build a society where everyone feels they belong, regardless of their background. Over the past two years, we have significantly broadened the scope of legal support we provide our clients. We now offer legal advice on all immigration and asylum matters as well as generalist advice on a full range of welfare, housing, and debt issues. We deliver our services with a team of more than 10 solicitors, caseworkers, and advisers as well as a growing network of pro bono lawyers and volunteers. The team operates from two offices and several outreach centres across London.

As Children’s Caseworker/Solicitor, you will be responsible for taking the lead on our UASC work, as well as delivering high quality legal services on the full range of immigration and welfare issues that affect migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. A central part of your role will be conducting asylum casework under legal aid funding, with a specialist focus on representing unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and including feeding into yearly funding reports.

This is an ideal opportunity for a caseworker keen to work with UASC clients and who understands the role legal advice and representation can play in achieving wider societal change.
