EERC is seeking a Senior Housing Adviser or Solicitor to join our team. This role is full time for a fixed term until 31 March 2023.
This role will provide housing and welfare advice and casework to Eastern European survivors of domestic abuse in the UK. This will join a team which offers independent advocacy, legal advice and therapeutic support. The team is very supportive and all staff have supervision and access to counselling if needed.
The ideal candidate would have good experience as a Housing Adviser or Solicitor and will understand the opportunities and challenges for survivors of domestic abuse when accessing housing. They will need to be familiar with the rights, entitlements and legal structures relevant to Eastern Europeans in the UK.
Given the current situation – this job can be done entirely from our office or in a hybrid between office and work from home. EERC is well set up to facilitate safely seeing clients in the office as well as working remotely.
Please note: this post-holder will liaise with women who are unlikely to speak good or any English, might struggle with literacy, and have experienced disadvantage, abuse, and trauma. Therefore, we request that candidates are women. Speaking an Eastern European Language is a desirable, but not esssential.
How to apply – send completed application form by the deadline.
Deadline – 5 June 2022.
