CAIWU is seeking to hire an enthusiastic and committed person to join its legal department as a caseworker. Applications are open until 16th July.
The Cleaners and Allied Independent Workers Union (CAIWU) is seeking to hire an enthusiastic and committed person to join its legal department as a caseworker. CAIWU is a grassroots, member-led trade union for cleaners. We organise workplaces, campaign for better conditions for cleaners, and assist members with employment-related issues.
The role involves managing CAIWU's pool of legal volunteers, representing cleaners at internal company hearings and acting as a trade union representative in the Employment Tribunal. The role is an excellent opportunity for aspiring lawyers to work on their own employment tribunal cases and build the skills necessary for a successful legal career. Many of our past caseworkers have gone on to secure pupillage at top Chambers.
The salary for this role is £28,000, rising to £31,200 on successful completion of a 3-month probationary period.
The ideal candidate will have a strong academic background, have completed the Bar Course or equivalent and be committed to the trade union ethos. Our hiring process has three stages: a paper sift, a written legal problem, and an interview. To submit an application, send a CV of no more than 2 pages and cover letter detailing suitability for and commitment to the role of no more than a page to email@example.com.
Deadline: 16th of July - 5pm.
Candidates will be assessed solely on merit and our selection process focuses on the following criteria:
· Bar Course
· Relevant legal experience
· Ability to work under pressure; and
· Commitment to the trade union ethos
· Language skills, particularly an ability to speak Spanish, are desired but not necessary.
Candidates invited to interview will be notified by email on 20th July. At that time, those candidates invited to interview will be provided with the legal problem. We expect to hold interviews w/c 31st July.
