Legal Services Agency Ltd. (“LSA”) is one of the leading charitable law centres in Scotland. For 28 years it has tackled unmet legal needs by providing high volume, high quality advice, assistance and representation to vulnerable people in a number of fields, including housing and homelessness, mental health and dementia, asylum seekers and trafficking victims, as well as victims of crimes of violence. We have a strong Human Rights commitment.
We are also one of the main community legal educators in Scotland.
We employ 56 staff in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Greenock.
Our partners include the Scottish Government, Local Authorities, particularly Glasgow, Edinburgh and Greenock, the European Union and major charitable trusts. We also have a strong commitment to Legal Aid case work.
The organisation’s legal work is undertaken by the firm of Brown & Co. Legal LLP.
We are recruiting a new Chief Executive Officer to take the organisation forward by continuing to deliver existing services, as well as developing new areas of activity which meet unmet legal needs.
This is a major opportunity for a committed and ambitious individual to make a difference and to continue to build on LSA’s successes. It will be a challenging and rewarding job.
You do not have to be a lawyer. You will need to have at least five years’ experience in management and have expertise in funding and income generation, partnership working, change management in complex organisations and the ability to motivate and manage professional staff and volunteers.
The closing date is Friday, 8th September 2017, 5pm.
