We are seeking experienced and enthusiastic solicitors for the following posts. You will be a confident communicator with the ability to solve problems in a pragmatic and timely way. You must also be able to work both independently and as part of a professional team and be able to manage conflicting priorities to deadlines:

• Housing and Litigation – There will be a strong focus on ASB work but also general housing management matters and recent experience of these areas, ideally within a local authority legal department, would be an advantage.

• Child Care – To deal primarily with care and placement proceedings however also in respect of fostering, adoption and general children’s social care matters. You will either be, or be keen to become, a confident advocate. Recent experience of care proceedings and of working in a local authority would be advantageous but newly-qualified solicitors will also be considered.

• Contracts/Procurement - Maternity Cover up to 11 months - To advise on and support a range of procurement, commissioning and commercial activity. You will have experience of either commercial, contracts, procurement or social care commissioning law.

We have an excellent benefits package which includes generous annual leave, flexi-time, access to a Local Government Pension Scheme, and salary sacrifice schemes.
