Senior Childcare Lawyer required to join a local authority based in London on a locum contract to start in October.

This is a fantastic opportunity to undertake a Senior Childcare role within a popular London Borough. There is a lovely working environment at this local authority, with very supportive and friendly colleagues. They also offer flexible working, with the possibility of working from home 1-2 days a week.

About the role

This will be a dual role partly involving managerial responsibilities, as well as managing a live caseload of child care matters.

You will be managing a team of Childcare Lawyers and Paralegals, as well as deputising for the Head of Family Law as and when required, allowing you to build on any current managerial experience.

The ideal candidate will come from a public sector background, although this is not essential as long as strong experience of handling public Childcare cases is held. Previous managerial experience is essential for this role, as is possessing a strong technical ability.

The successful Childcare Lawyer will have excellent negotiating skills, a proactive approach to solving problems and a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
