Tower Hamlets Law Centre helps some of the most vulnerable people in London’s East End. Since our foundation in 1975, we have earned a fine reputation amongst our clients and supporters as skilled and determined legal advisers to the local community.

We are looking for an experienced welfare benefits caseworker to join our busy team. As well as thorough knowledge of welfare benefits law, you’ll have a talent for explaining complex legal ideas in simple language and the ability to manage a demanding workload.

We are particularly interested to hear from you if you would like to develop a career in social welfare law and happy to discuss ways in which we can support your career progression, including the SQE – the new route to qualification as a solicitor from September 2021

For the moment, Covid-19 means that our team is working remotely from the law centre for most of the time. Interviews for this post are likely to be held using Zoom and you should be prepared to work remotely if appointed.
