The Helena Kennedy Centre has a dynamic staff group with a broad portfolio of teaching, research, project work and scholarly activities that cut across the subject areas of law, criminology, human rights and social justice; within this our Refugee Family Reunion Clinic has been recognised as a leading centre for research and practice.

This role would provide an opportunity for us to develop our portfolio and the reputation of the Hallam Law suite of modules. You will join an existing team offering support and guidance for refugees in the UK to be reunited with their families abroad. You will be involved in supervising students in providing guidance to refugee clients, working with interpreters and maintaining links with outside organisations.

You must have experience of supervising law students at undergraduate level and experience of working internationally would be an advantage. Evidence of policy work and/or a case worker qualification and the ability to design and deliver transformative and innovative learning experiences is essential.

We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups

For non-EU applicants, we are unlikely to be able to offer a certificate of sponsorship for this job (unless you are switching from a UK student visa), so you should only apply if you already have unrestricted permission to work in the UK.
