Part-Time Kaituhi Rauemi Ture – Legal Resource Writer (Digital)

Community Law Wellington & Hutt Valley –  Wellington City, Wellington

Job Description

Community Law Wellington & Hutt Valley (CLWHV) is a registered charity that provides free legal advice and information for those in our community with unmet legal needs. Our vision is for a society where those with the least resources have as much as, or more access to, justice than those with the most.

To support our vision, we continue to grow our flagship resource, the Community Law Manual (the Manual). The Manual provides easy-to-read legal information, on just about every area of community and personal life. It’s available both in print and for free online, with around 70,000 visitors from across Aotearoa to the online version per month. You can read the Community Law Manual at https://communitylaw.org.nz/legal-information/.

The Kaituhi Rauemi Ture will work with the Publications team, namely the Publications Director and other Legal Resource Writer(s), to make sure that the Community Law Manual is legally accurate, up-to-date, and ready on time for annual publishing. This role is part-time at 30 hours per week, and fixed-term until 30 June 2022 in line with funding.

This is a great opportunity to join our team at a time of exciting growth and development for the Manual. Usually the online Manual is updated once annually alongside the publication of the physical book, however this role is part of a project dedicated to moving the online version of the Manual towards real-time updating. This means that users of the free online Manual will have access to the most accurate and up-to-date information as laws change throughout the year.

Our successful applicant will be:

– A talented writer with skills & experience in turning complex information into plain-English language
– Knowledgeable about the law and justice system, and how everyday people engage with it
– Politically and socially engaged, and aware of the current issues facing our communities in Aotearoa
– Familiar with website content management systems like WordPress
– Able to understand and put into practise the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi
– Committed to our values, and access to justice for all
– A great communicator, with excellent teamwork skills, organisational skills, and time-management.

In turn we will provide a busy but flexible working environment in a progressive organisation full of passionate, skilled people. We want to be a great place to work for great kaimahi!
