Exciting new opportunity for a Childcare Advocate to join a popular West London Borough council on a locum 12-month contract to cover maternity leave from February 2021.

The successful Childcare Advocate will be required to conduct:

  • Initial hearings
  • Case management hearings
  • Contested initial hearings
  • Final Hearings

With the vast majority of court hearings still being conducted remotely, this role is expected to continue to be a remote position, athough there may be occasional instances where the cases are physcially heard in Court.

While previous public care experience is preferred, my client will consider candidates from private practice and chambers, as long as you can demonstrate the required skills.

With this being a long-term locum assignment within a friendly, reputable and well-organised team, you will have the amazing opportunity to really develop professionally and grow within this role. We have always had excellent feedback about the team and management from locums who have worked there.


  • Long-term role
  • Pure advocacy position so no casework required
  • Competitive hourly rate up to £50 per hour
  • Remote working
  • Modern IT systems and new laptops
  • Friendly and supportive team that believe in progression
