Sessional Advisers

London based, hours are negotiable. £22 per hour (plus £3 per hour holiday pay).

For many families, becoming involved with social care services is a difficult and distressing experience. You will work with families who are seeking help from children’s social care services; families who are subject to child protection procedures; and families whose children are in local authority care or placed for adoption.

The successful candidate will have in-depth knowledge of childcare law and practice and draw upon this expertise to provide telephone and written advice to mothers and fathers and to family members raising children who cannot live at home. You will be an experienced childcare lawyer, social worker or professional with related expertise in advising families.
All appointees will want to work with families, be sensitive to their needs and committed to the aims of Family Rights Group.
