Childcare Lawyer / Senior Childcare Lawyer

£45-55 per hour

Remote Working

A Childcare Lawyer is required to join a large social enterprise firm on a locum basis. This is an exciting opportunity to join a large shared service arrangement which prides itself on being one of the market leaders for undertaking public sector work.

You will be working mainly on behalf of 3-4 key local government clients but will also be working with other local authority and public sector organisations. This is an exciting opportunity to develop your existing childcare law experience and be able to manage a caseload of your own childcare matters.

We would be interested to hear from candidates with private practice or public sector experience.

You will be undertaking a caseload of public care proceedings on behalf of one local authority. You will receive excellent support from your own paralegal who will be able to assist you with drafting documentation and day to day running of your files. You will receive excellent support from the Principal and Senior Lawyer in the team to get up to speed.

Conducting advocacy is encouraged but you will receive training and support with this should you lack in experience in this area. Our client also has in-house barristers who can undertake the more complex advocacy and allow you time to focus on your cases.

You will be exposed to a real range of public care cases which will allow you to develop and grow as an experienced childcare lawyer. This firm is a progressive and organic organisation which will take time to invest in you and develop throughout the organisation.

We encourage interested applicants seeking part time or full time to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Lewis Dainty in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
