Legal Advocacy Support Project (LASP) Development Officer

Closing date: Monday, 25th April 2022

LASP is a model for enhancing social welfare law services by recruiting and training law students to undertake selected advice and advocacy casework. The LASP model has had considerable success within welfare benefits appeals casework in Bristol and three other UK cities.

The post holder will be responsible for exploring ways in which to improve the capacity, performance, and inclusiveness of the Project and to promote and facilitate the development of similar projects in other locations. In addition, the post holder would work towards spending a day per week carrying out PIP and WCA appeals casework and associated volunteer supervision. We find that involvement in the casework helps better inform development initiatives and so the roles complement each other well.

3 days (21 hours) per week, fixed term to June 2023 (possibility of extension subject to funding)

Actual salary: £14,427 (£24,045 FTE), plus generous leave and pension package

You will work closely with the other 3 team members to help continue our success with the Project and will be well supported by them and the wider Law Centre. There will be a period of handover/training to ensure you are confident with the development initiatives that have already been considered by the team.

Application Details: If you would like to apply for this role, please return your completed application form via email to by 12pm 25th April 2022.

Interviews will be held on 3rd May 2022.
