Ever wanted to write for Free Movement? We’re recruiting!

There is a lot going on in immigration law at the moment and we are looking to recruit more specialist contributors to Free Movement. If you can write fluently, you are interested in being read by a wide audience and you are fascinated by immigration law and practice then have a think about joining our small team of contributors.

We are particularly looking for someone who can help with quick reaction legal analysis of case law and rule changes and who is capable of seeing the wider impacts of changes to immigration law. There will also be opportunities to write about developments and themes in immigration law, policy and practice, though. Free Movement is a platform now read by over a million unique visitors a year and with a mailing list of over 17,000.

We would particularly welcome interest from experienced immigration lawyers and we can help with structure, editing and so on.

A successful applicant would (in no particular order):

  • Be in a position to respond quickly to new developments, meeting deadlines of between 4 and 48 hours
  • Be able to write fluently, stylishly and concisely in English
  • Be able to analyse, understand and explain complex legal concepts in simple, plain language
  • Be legally trained
  • Have experience in UK immigration law and practice
  • Be familiar with key sources of information on immigration law
  • Be highly computer literate and have experience of or easily be able to learn how to use WordPress software

Work would be undertaken remotely. A contributor need not be constantly available, but should be able to take work on consistently.

Fees payable for the work are negotiable but will be at a fixed rate agreed in advance, typically £60 for a “normal” case note of up to 750 words. Longer pieces of work would attract higher payments agreed in advance.

If you are interested, please get in touch by uploading below a one-page letter in PDF format setting out why you think you would be suitable. I will not necessarily be able to respond to all applicants.

The deadline for applications is midnight on 15 November 2017.

  • Accepted file types: pdf.
    Please upload your one-page covering letter in PDF format here.
