  • Staff Vacancy

    FRU are currently recruiting for a Chief Executive. FRU’s current chief executive, Lorna Reid, is leaving FRU in April to take up a new post as Chief Executive at Kensington and Chelsea Citizen’s Advice Bureau. 

    We wish her all the best in this new adventure.  Lorna said, “I am excited about my new role but sad to be leaving FRU. In a landscape of decreasing access to free and independent advocacy and representation for vulnerable claimants, the work carried out by FRU in providing pro bono representation is very important.  The new Chief Executive will be joining a great team.”
