Volunteer for NCLS

We rely on the generous support of volunteers. Our volunteers work in a range of areas such as administration, research and advice.

Volunteering is a great chance to build your skills and find new challenges while making a difference to your community. If you think you can spare a few hours a week we would love to hear from you. Please click here for further information and how to apply.

We also run a Volunteer Scheme in partnership with the University of East Anglia, giving students an opportunity to learn practical skills in a legal advice setting. For more information click here.

Volunteer Vacancies

NCLS is looking for a frontline volunteer to commit to at least 2 days per week to help us answer the enquires for our Free Legal Advice Services. This is a very busy service and we are looking for someone with experience of working under pressure, preferably in an advice setting, who can deal with sometimes distressed and vulnerable people with tact and care. The role will involve triaging clients to identify what service they need and booking them in for appointments. Full training is provided and you will work in our office  with staff and law student volunteers, although much of the work is telephone based. Good IT skills are essential. This is a very rewarding role where you can work in a dynamic and friendly environment and enhance existing skills, as well as develop new ones. A long term commitment (minimum 12 months) is vital.
