A Childcare solicitor is required to join a really superb, supportive local authority/ team in the South East. My client is looking for an experienced Childcare solicitor to join them on an initial 3 month basis and the role will remain remote.

The council will courier a laptop to you and they are very advanced with their systems/ technology; you will be given a laptop that you can also use as a phone.

As a Childcare solicitor you will carry a full caseload of Childcare matters, which will include Care cases, Pre-proceedings and some Private Law matters. Advocacy would be beneficial but counsel can be instructed.

Key responsibilities and examples of cases:

  • Advise on threshold and PLO matters
  • Attend PLO and strategy meetings

  • Qualified solicitor with a minimum of 4 years PQE experience
  • Public Childcare Law experience within a Local Authority

Benefits of the role:

  • Impressive technology and system
  • No requirement for you to go in to the office at any point
