Litigation Legal Officer

£ Competitive

Litigation Legal Officer is required to join a small local authority on the South Coast of England on an interim or permanent basis.

The successful candidate will support a busy litigation team and will be responsible for the provision of a comprehensive legal service; in particular, to undertake routine civil, debt and enforcement related work on behalf of the legal shared service.

Duties will include: drafting and completing routine court pleadings and paperwork, such as claim form, particulars of claim, witness statements and preparing court bundles. It will, also, involve reviewing and advising on the strengths and weaknesses of evidence, together with helping prepare cases for presenting applications in the County Courts.

The work may include, both, contentious and non-contentious matters.

Candidates that have previous experience of drafting and advising on civil and debt related matters are required for this role and experience gained in either local government or private sector dispute resolution would be preferable.

Candidates will need to have obtained either a degree in law or an LPC and the client is happy to consider CILEX and qualified lawyers for the post.

The client is ideally seeking a permanent placement so those looking for long term prospects are strongly advised to apply.

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 Chelsey Newsom in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
