Locum Childcare Lawyer

Sellick Partnership are delighted to be working with an 'Outstanding' rated authority on their search for a Childcare Lawyer to join the team on a locum basis. The role is full time, for 3 to 6 months initially, but is likely to be extended dependent on the workload nearer the time.

The successful applicant must have experience of public childcare law and have previously handled their own caseload and conducted their own advocacy. This is a great opportunity to work with a fantastic team and you will be fully supported by a team of experienced Paralegals.

The duties of the role will include:

  • Managing pre proceedings and a busy caseload of care matters
  • Advocacy
  • Acting as a Legal advisor to a wide range of clients across the Social Care functions within the council

This role will be conducted remotely for the foreseeable future, but there may be occasional commitments which require a presence in the office such as hybrid hearings. Those who have worked within a local authority setting before are highly sought by our client, but they will consider those from other backgrounds, so we welcome all applicants.

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 Jess Gaunt in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
