This post has a specific focus on strengthening Right to Remain’s legal education work on non-asylum matters which are not covered by legal aid, although the candidates must have good knowledge of asylum matters as well. We are looking for someone who can hit the ground running, working closely with another Legal Education Officer and the rest of our small and dynamic Right to Remain staff team.

As a legal education officer at Right to Remain, you will be responsible for maintaining, developing, and increasing usage of our highly popular and accessible resources about the asylum and immigration system, most notably the Right to Remain Toolkit. You will deliver interactive workshops on the legal system for people navigating that system as well as professionals and volunteers. You will engage with our network of community groups to ensure that we are apprised of developments on the ground and we are communicating important changes to these support groups.

Throughout our existence, Right to Remain have adapted to the oft-changing political and socio-economic environment by responding to our community’s needs and priorities and challenging unequal power-dynamics that structure of our society. To address the challenges of an unprecedentedly hostile and difficult environment our community finds themselves in (as a result of the pandemic, Brexit, climate emergency and now the cost of living crisis), we are developing and implementing our new strategy that enhances our impact, and this additional Legal Education Officer’s post is part of this strategy. This is also an exciting moment for Right to Remain as a recently registered charity, as we embark on our much-awaited work to consolidate and scale up our model of lived-experience-led community organising and to link our public legal education work more directly with community organising, campaigning and strategic litigation, as well as with our movement building work through strategic convening, partnership and influencing.

We look forward to hearing from you.
