If you're a Childcare Lawyer looking for an opportunity within a local authority then we want to hear from you!

Sellick Partnership are currently assisting a North London Borough Council to find a Childcare Lawyer to join their team on a 3-month locum contract, with the view to extend far longer.

The Childcare Lawyer will be working remotely for the foreseeable future and will be handling:

  • Care Cases
  • PLO matters
  • Emergency Protection Orders
  • Providing advice to social workers

The council is dynamic and welcoming; offering flexible working patterns to fit any childcare or other committments. Nor is this limited to just those within a commutable distance from London, as the council are happy to offer remote working post-lockdown.

Our client is looking for Childcare Lawyers with experience of Public Childcare Law, ideally from within a local authority, but those from private practice or chambers will be strongly considered.

Now is a great time to make the switch to local government, don't miss out!

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for shortlisting. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Emilia Casaus in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
