Based in Sierra Leone, AdvocAid has a small team of paralegals, duty counsel lawyers, project officers, education officers and assistants who together, ensure that girls and women in Sierra Leone have access to free legal aid and know and can assert their legal rights.

If we have any vacancies, they’ll be listed below along with job descriptions and how to apply.

New role: Deputy Director & Legal Officer

After a period without a Legal Officer, AdvocAid is pleased that we now have the means to recruit a new Deputy Director & Legal Officer to manage our legal work and support AdvocAid’s Executive Director in developing the organisation.

 

We are looking for a qualified female Barrister & Solicitor entitled to practice in all the formal courts in Sierra Leone. The Deputy Director & Legal Officer will be responsible for legal programme management, research, law reform and advocacy projects as well as for providing legal representation to AdvocAid clients and supervising our legal aid staff across the country. Please refer to the Job Advert and Job Description and apply before 19 March.

We are always grateful for the support of volunteers. If you have some time to spare and some expertise to share, please get in touch with us. Some ideas of how we can utilise volunteers include helping at events, conducting research, introducing us to corporate partners, donating photos for use on our publications and materials and supporting our legal aid and social welfare programmes (if qualified).

We look forward to hearing from you, and welcoming you to the team.
