Job overview

Childcare Locum Solicitor

Sellick Partnership is working in partnership with a high performing, in-house legal services team to recruit a locum Childcare Solicitor. This public sector organisation in Stafford is looking to strengthen its current team with the addition of two new locum Childcare Solicitors. As a locum Childcare Solicitor you will join an expanding team and help deliver effective legal advice and advocacy work in the family courts.

Successful locum Childcare Solicitor applicants will work as part of a motivated, supportive and friendly Legal Services team. You will be tasked with working autonomously on a caseload of Childcare matters. As a locum Childcare Solicitor you will be involved in interesting, challenging, and rewarding work; work that will give you the satisfaction of accomplishment that can come from helping vulnerable children and their families. You will have the advantage of undertaking advocacy at centrally located courts. You will also work very closely with the internal clients you provide advice to, assisting in developing successful long term working relationships.

The successful locum Childcare Solicitor will ideally have previous knowledge and experience working within childcare or family law. You will be able to handle a caseload of public law children's matters, dealing with drafting and any related advocacy. If advocacy is not your strong suit you will have the assistance of an in house advocate's team to help with this element of the cases. Your experience may have been gained in a local authority or private practice setting. This is a perfect opportunity for a private practice solicitor to gain a 360 degree view of childcare law and experience local authority work.

As a locum Childcare Solicitor you must possess care and compassion to listen to what clients and your colleagues need. Everyone's needs are different so our client structures their services in a way that means they can adapt to what is right for every person. Your resilience and motivation will be supported by a strong and supportive team with a genuine sense of community.
