The Legal Education Foundation is inviting applications for the newly created post of Justice First Fellowship Manager. The successful candidate will play a central role in the delivery of the Justice First Fellowship (JFF), which is a key element of our vision, mission and strategic objectives.

The Foundation established the JFF in 2013 to support the next generation of social justice lawyers. It has since funded over 120 Fellowships and is achieving excellent outcomes in supporting Fellows into employment in social justice law.

The JFF Manager is a new role, created to lead the consolidation and further development of the scheme. You will bring the core programme, project and relationship management skills that are essential to the role. Your experience could have been gained in a variety of settings. Experience of working or volunteering in the legal advice sector, the wider social justice arena, in delivering education and professional development programmes and grant making could all be helpful but what is essential is a commitment to the vision, mission and values of the Foundation.

People with lived experience of social welfare legal issues are underrepresented in our organisation, so we are actively recruiting and prioritising candidates who bring this understanding alongside other skills and expertise.
