 This is a fantastic opportunity to join a unique, award winning legal charity and NGO based in Central London.

PLP is a national legal charity 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.

The Office Administrative Assistant will help the PLP achieve its mission by assisting the effective day-to-day operation of the charity. The right candidate will be able to handle a diverse range of duties including:

  • Assisting with office finances
  • Helping to maintain a tidy, well-supplied and professional office environment
  • Handling visitors, phone-calls and out-going post
  • Assisting the Director and senior staff with travel bookings, meeting arrangements and routine admin

Your efforts will enable the rest of the PLP team be more efficient and effective in their work standing up for the poor and marginalised where government and public bodies have made unfair or illegal decisions that affect them.

This is a new role at PLP to help meet the increasing support needs of our expanding team. As such the post is offered as a one year fixed term contract, before the end of the contract term we shall review the needs of the organisation with a view to making the post permanent.

The successful candidate will be a team player, highly organised with good numeracy and communication skills. Experience in a relevant role is highly desirable.
