We are currently working with one of the largest local authorities in the country in order to find a solicitor (or equivalent) who has experience in administrative and litigation law. My client needs an expert in this area to join their team on a locum basis. This is a niche role that requires someone who has considerable experience of dealing with judicial review work. In particular, this role focuses on judicial review in relation to homelessness, although candidates with a proven track record of handling a variety of JR matters will be considered. The work relates to various areas of homelessness legislation, but particular focus in recent months has been on Judicial Review in relation to the suitability of temporary accommodation. This is a key area for my client and they need a candidate who has demonstrable experience handling JR cases.

This will be a full time locum role, but applications will be considered from candidates looking to work a 4 day week. My client is looking for someone to join their team imminently, so this would perhaps suit a locum whose current assignment is due to end shortly, or those candidates who are available immediately. The position is to run for an initial 3 months and it is likely that this will then be extended for a further 3 months. This is a remote working role for the foreseeable future and all IT equipment will be provided by the client.
