Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley is a registered charity providing free legal help for individuals and for community groups. We also provide restorative justice services.
Our major focus is on improving the quality and quantity of our services and this role is the latest expression of that drive.
As Community Legal Help Coordinator you’ll be developing a programme to match community group clients with available pro-bono legal help; you’ll be developing a triage process for all free legal help services to make sure we give the most help to the most in need; and to do these things you’ll be building relationships between people and organisations from all walks of life.
To demonstrate that you’re right for this role, you’ll need to show us that you:
• Wholeheartedly believes in improving access to justice and using the law to empower disadvantaged members of our community
• Are really pleasant to work with and feel equally able to build relationships with people from small community groups and big-time law firms.
• Delight in the satisfaction of a job well done, no matter how small, but also know how to rigorously prioritise so the most important work gets done by all of us.
In return we can offer you a work environment that’s so fresh and enjoyable you’ll love coming to the office every day – and we are open to job share and part time applicants as well.
