NJCASA is hiring a Legal Advocate! NJCASA’s Legal Advocate is a critical member of our small, passionate team. Ideal candidates will have a solid understanding of the root causes of sexual violence and the need to increase New Jersey’s capacity to provide a trauma-informed response to victims/survivors. As is the case with all positions on our team, the selected candidate will be expected to think outside of the box, to be solution-focused, and to find opportunity amid challenges. The ideal candidate will have vision, a positive attitude, high professional standards, and passion for the mission of NJCASA. In addition, candidates should be politically savvy, outcome-oriented, have a mind for strategic planning, work with intention, and be interested in being part of a progressive, mission-driven team.
The Legal Advocate is responsible for creating critical resources and information necessary to help survivors navigate the criminal/civil legal systems with which they may interact. The Legal Advocate will create and administer multimedia resources accessible to survivors through an on-line portal on NJCASA’s website. The Legal Advocate also serves as an on-demand technical assistance point of contact for local direct service providers seeking guidance for survivors with whom they work.
