Immigration Advisor

This is a new role, as investing in in-house legal capacity is a long-term strategic priority for HMC. By employing an in-house Immigration Advisor, the aim is to provide advice and  legal representation for visitors who would otherwise struggle to access the legal advice they need or where further delay to find a representative would be particularly detrimental. We have secured funding for three years from Trust for London to employ an Immigration Advisor and have prepared an application to register with OISC (Office of the Immigration Service Commissioner).

Hours: 35 hours per week

Salary: NJC Scale 25 to 27 plus LW. Starting at point 25 i.e. £33,146 pa

Qualification: OISC L3 or solicitor or IAAS Level 2
