Location: Remote (organisation based in Cardiff, Wales)
Hours: Asylum Justice Trustees meet 6 times a year, usually at 5.30pm on a Wednesday or Thursday every couple of months, including an additional Annual General Meeting usually held in October. Summary documents are provided ahead of these meetings, and trustees are also invited to participate in sub-groups for specific issues which are voluntary.
Closing date: 29th February 2024
Interview date: 8th March 2024
