21 hours per week, £18,000 per annum (£30,000 FTE)

IPSEA is a registered national charity (number 327691) giving free and independent legally-based information, advice and support to make sure that children and young people with all kinds of special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) get the right education.   

IPSEA is recruiting a Legal Team Member to join our existing Legal Team of five. The role involves training and supporting IPSEA’s volunteers.  

Our advice and information services, which are delivered by a network of around 150 highly-trained volunteers, include two helplines and a Tribunal Support Service which provides casework support for families who need assistance with preparing and presenting their cases at Tribunal.  

This position calls for someone with a legal qualification or experience of providing legal advice in the area of SEND law. A team player with excellent verbal and written communication skills, you should also be able to work autonomously as this role is likely to be predominantly home-based.
