Work for CPAG – Lawyer

by | Jan 11, 2020

Child Poverty Action Group works on behalf of the one in four children in the UK growing up in poverty. It doesn’t have to be like this. We use our understanding of what causes poverty and the impact it has on children’s lives to campaign for policies that will prevent and solve poverty – for good.

We are looking for an ambitious and committed lawyer to help deliver our high profile test case work. We represent claimants in the Upper Tribunal, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court and the lawyer is expected to run those cases, appoint and liaise with Counsel and oversee the associated legal aid applications in addition to ensuring the successful delivery of our public law legal aid contract.

The successful candidate will be a solicitor or barrister with at least three years’ post-qualification experience in public law and a commitment to human rights and social justice. Knowledge of social security law is also desirable, though not essential.
