Salary negotiable up to £31,942 based on experience and qualifications


We seek an experienced caseworker to manage a specialist housing advice caseload.



Central England Law Centre is the UK’s largest Law Centre, with a national reputation for innovation and excellence in its legal practice.


Following the opening of an office in Birmingham in late 2013, Coventry Law Centre agreed a change to its name to create Central England Law Centre, comprising two ‘operating organisations’: Coventry Law Centre, whose activities focus on Coventry and Warwickshire, and Birmingham Community Law Centre, whose activities focus on Birmingham.


You will join our established and well respected Housing team and will be based at Birmingham Community Law Centre.  BCLC meets local community advice needs in the second most deprived neighbourhood in Birmingham, where the migrant population is 76%


The office has grown rapidly since 2013 and we are now able to offer expertise in welfare benefits, debt, community care, immigration and public law.


BCLC has just been awarded a legal aid contract in housing and we have funding from the Oak Foundation’s Housing and Homelessness Programme; so we have an exciting opportunity to establish a new housing service at BCLC. We are seeking a highly motivated, experienced solicitor/caseworker who is inspired by the opportunity to work as part of a team who are using legal solutions to improve lives in an area where many people are living with enduring poverty or disadvantage.


Terms and conditions include a 37 hour week, 28 days holiday plus 8 statutory days, and pension scheme membership.
