Sellick Partnership is currently working in partnership with a high performing social enterprise law firm which provides legal services across the public and not to profit sector. This practice is seeking to increase their social services team due to the successful demand within their public childcare department and as such are seeking Childcare Lawyers (Solicitor, Legal Executive or Non-practising Barrister).

The successful Childcare Lawyer will be joining an established practice that has exciting prospects ahead. This firm undertakes work for three large local authorities so the work will be all public childcare focused and you have the opportunity to work on behalf of the children.

Due to the high demand of childcare lawyers in the market, the client is very interested to hear from newly qualified childcare candidates who have undertaken a seat in either family, childcare or litigation and from those who are looking to pursue a career within public childcare law. This is an excellent training opportunity to work with some of the most experienced childcare lawyers in the field and develop second to none knowledge in this area.

Our Client is looking for enthusiastic individuals who have a real passion for this area of law who are able to work within a pressurised and complex area of law. You will be required to undertake a manageable caseload of both pre proceeding and proceeding matters and this will develop over time of your role. You will receive excellent support from a team of paralegals who will be able to assist on both casework and bundling.

The client is happy to consider candidates who have a litigation or family background who are looking to transfer into public childcare work. This is a great training opportunity for someone who is seriously considering this as part of their career.

This practice has three offices with their main site being based in Cambridgeshire and other sites located in Northampton shire and Bedfordshire making it easily accessible for those living in the Home Counties, East Anglia or Midlands area. It has easy transport routes from London also. This post is based in either Northampton or Shefford.
