We are looking for an experienced Childcare Paralegal to join a London Local Authority.

As a childcare paralegal you will be assisting up to 4 fee earners in the team with a varied caseload dealing with child protection matters. You will be responsible for preparing bundles, drafting a number of orders and documents, attending Court with lawyers, taking minutes at Legal Planning Meetings, and undertaking research. There may also be an opportunity to pick up some Adult Social Care matters.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a paralegal to join a close knit friendly team within a Local Authority that is supportive and will provide opportunities to pick up other areas of law. The offices are accessible by close proximity to transport links.

The ideal candidate will already have Local Government experience.

The contract is initially for a 3 month period, although it is likely that this will be extended and turn into a rolling contract. Ideally looking for a start date early in the New Year.

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 Reyhaneh Tehrani in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
