This is a fantastic opportunity to join a unique, award winning legal charity and NGO based in Central London. PLP was founded in 1990 with the mission to improve access to justice for those facing poverty, discrimination or other disadvantage, through legal aid casework, research, policy initiatives and training.  We have recently refreshed our vision and mission as part of planned expansion. Our vision is a world in which individual rights are respected and public bodies act fairly and lawfully.  Our strategic priorities are to:

  • Promote and preserve the Rule of Law
  • Ensure fair systems
  • Improve access to justice

As we are expanding, there will be opportunities for the right candidate to develop their portfolio to make best use of their skills and develop both their, and the organisation’s interests.  Your role will assist in the administration and programming of PLP events such as our annual conferences in London, Cardiff and Manchester, training across the legal and NGO sector in public law and fundraising initiatives to support PLP such as the Royal Parks Half Marathon. You will need to be as comfortable handling data and IT as you will be thinking through event logistics.  An understanding of and engagement with human rights and public law as it affects people in the UK would be a distinct advantage.

The Events Officer will:

  • Support the smooth running of events by liaising with venues, suppliers and speakers
  • Manage events sales and bookings
  • Support the expansion of the PLP’s profile through our website and social media
  • Provide executive assistance to our director by liaising with key external stakeholders
