Trade Union Representatives 

CAIWU is currently accepting applications for volunteer trade union representatives. 

This is an excellent opportunity for individuals interested in pursuing a career in law to gain valuable advocacy experience while actively working to safeguard the legal rights of individuals. Many of our past volunteers have successfully obtained pupillage or training contracts at renowned chambers and law firms.

To submit an application, send your CV to

Deadline: 6th of November - 5pm.

We will get back to successful applicants on the 10th of November. Next training is scheduled to take place on the 17th of November at 3 p.m. 

We select volunteers solely on merit and our selection process focuses on the following criteria:

  • Intellectual and analytical ability, we are looking for candidates with a good academic record and who can present written ideas succinctly and persuasively.

  • Relevant legal work experience.

  • Oral communication and advocacy skills. Spanish language skills are encouraged but not a requirement.

  • Temperament, including a commitment to hard work and ability to perform under pressure.

CAIWU strives to be an equal opportunities organisation and is committed to diversity amongst its staff and volunteers. We therefore encourage and welcome applications from women, people of minority ethnic origin, people with disabilities, neurodiverse candidates and those who are LGBT+, as well as candidates from other groups which are underrepresented in the trade union sector. We are happy to make reasonable adjustments to enable disabled or neurodiverse candidates to demonstrate their suitability for the job.
