Community Lawyer – Refugee and Immigration

Are you a lawyer looking for meaningful work that will fulfil you and make a real difference to the lives of others? If so, then read on.

Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley is a registered charity providing free legal advice, information and education to meet unmet legal needs in the Wellington and Hutt Valley communities.

We are looking for a lawyer to be part of our refugee and immigration team. You need to be driven and passionate about helping refugees and other vulnerable migrants. You need to have the heart for this position but you also need to be highly disciplined and organised.

You must be strongly committed to working with our experienced team of volunteers, and to supporting and developing volunteers to deliver our services. You will have to use a lot of initiative and in return will have a lot of flexibility in your work.

We are looking for the right fit for our team and are seeking applications from lawyers with all levels and areas of experience. We are open to talking to people who are interested in part time work, but you must be able to commit to working between both our Hutt Valley and Wellington offices.

This is a job for no ordinary lawyer – it is a one of a kind opportunity in a very rewarding work environment. It will be challenging but also very stimulating and fulfilling. If you hear this role calling your name we encourage you to apply.
