Are you looking for a Childcare Lawyer position starting in mid-September?

Sellick Partnership are currently assisting a London Borough Council to find an experienced Childcare Lawyer to join them from mid-September onwards.

This is a locum 3-month contract, expected to go onto a rolling basis.

The Childcare Lawyer will be joining a dynamic borough, with a welcoming and supportive team, who get interesting work.

The caseload will include the full range of child protection work, including:

  • Care cases
  • Dealing with neglect, domestic violence and cases with ongoing criminal proceedings
  • Attending legal planning meetings and PLO meetings
  • Advising on NRPF cases
  • Dealing with JR cases

Prior experience in a similar role is essential for this post, given the nature of the work, it is a requirement that the Childcare Lawyer has worked within a local authority before. However, if you feel your skillset from another background is transferable, then please do get in touch.

This is a great opportunity to join this council, don't miss out!

Given the start date of this role, this is an option for those with a longer notice period, a rare find in the locum market!
