Junior Housing Lawyer required to join a local authority based in London for an initial 3 month period.
This is a fantastic chance for a Housing Lawyer to join a popular local authority. This opportunity has arisen due to the Council bringing previously outsourced work back in-house.
We feel that this would be a great opportunity for a newly-qualified solicitor, who has recent experience of housing and litigation, to undertake interesting work within a busy local authority. Alternatively this would be a good transition for a lawyer with a few years post-qualification experience, who is looking to move from a private practice firm into the public sector.
This position will involve dealing with many housing-related matters, including but not limited to;
- Anti-social behaviour orders
- Rent arrears
- Ground for possession
The successful candidate will manage a caseload of housing matters, alongside conducting advocacy on initial hearings, although barristers will be instructed for complex cases.
Previous experience of working for a local authority would be desirable for this role, although not essential provided that a good knowledge of housing law within the public sector is held.
The office is easy to reach, located within walking distance from the nearest train station.
We encourage interested applicants 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 Kate Wilkinson in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
