This is a fantastic post for a qualified Solicitor, Barrister, FILEX or equivalent, who is wanting to grow their experience in public sector housing litigation work.

Our client is happy to consider candidates from either a public sector or private practice background. The role will involve office presence once a week and there may be the requirement to attend Court hearings in person. The Council offices are easily accessible via public transport.
