Further duties will include the Childcare Paralegal handling their own caseload of Section 7s and Section 37s.

In terms of experience, our client requires that the Childcare Paralegal should have experience of public childcare law, in particular Section 7s and 37s, as they will be holding their own caseload of these matters.
