Senior Childcare Lawyer is required to join a local authority based in Bedfordshire on either a locum or fixed term contract basis.

Senior Childcare duties include managing a team of paralegals whilst handling a caseload of public childcare matters. You will be picking up the more complex childcare matters within the team and supporting the more junior childcare lawyers with their caseload should they need any assistance to support the head of service.

You will have excellent support from a team of childcare paralegals and childcare legal assistants which can assist with PLO matters, drafting documents and preparing bundles.

Our client is seeking someone to cover a period of maternity leave (12 months) so this post would be really well suited to someone who is looking for a long term contract. Given the shortage of candidates in the market, our client is happy to consider those looking at either locum or a fixed term contract.

They offer an excellent benefit package with up to 2 days working from home and flexible working hours. This role is easily accessible by car with free parking on site and is accessible from London and the Home Counties.
