This is an excellent opportunity for someone with experience of employment law advice/casework and good administrative skills to join an established and well respected employment law team and work with an experienced employment solicitor providing casework support and assisting with the coordination of student clinics with students from local universities.  The team is the only source of free specialist employment advice in Coventry and also provides outreach services in Birmingham.  We are expanding our student clinics in October 2017 in partnership with Coventry University and their China campus, where 24 Chinese students will be working with us to provide free advice and assistance to people facing employment and discrimination problems.  By working in partnership with the University the Law Centre will be able to offer advice and representation to clients who otherwise may not be able to obtain advice or assistance and it will also provide a range of opportunities for Law students to gain practical experience while completing their degrees. 

You will be providing administrative support to the projects and also assisting the employment solicitor with ongoing cases going to the Employment Tribunal.  You will have the opportunity to develop your legal skills and knowledge and also to develop the student clinics by providing administrative support and coordination.
