Staff Vacancies


Administrator / Receptionist
Salary £23,000 per annum

Full Time

FRU provides representation in social entitlement and employment tribunals for people who can’t afford lawyers. We represent approximately 500 clients annually in tribunals across London and the South East.


Most of our work is done by approximately 300 volunteers, generally law students on the Bar Professional Training Course or the Legal Practice Course. They are supervised by our legal officers.  

An exciting opportunity exists for a conscientious and motivated individual to join our friendly, hard-working team based in Holborn.

This is a challenging role for someone with good organisational and communication skills for whom accuracy is second nature, pays close attention to detail and who takes multi-tasking in their stride.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 28th May 2019 at 12 noon.  Interviews will be held on Wednesday 5th June 2019.

Assistant Legal Officer, Social Security 2019-20


We are recruiting an Assistant Legal Officer to support our work in Social Security Tribunals. The successful candidate will be appointed on a fixed term contract.

Under the guidance of our experienced Principal Legal Officers, you will provide much of the day to day supervision of volunteers. You will also be expected to appear regularly in the tribunals, including the Upper Tribunal. You must have experience of advocacy in the Social Security Tribunal.

The post is funded in part by the Inns of Court and the Bar Educational Trust and applicants must be seeking to practice at the Bar.

This is a training and development post intended to give lawyers the opportunity to gain experience and develop skills early in their career. Most of our ALOs have gone on to pupillage.

The role will be a fixed-term post for the period June 2019 to August 2020.
