Our client, a local authority based in London is currently seeking a Senior Childcare Lawyer to join their legal team on a locum basis.

You will also be required to attend contested hearings, final hearings and case management hearings and Issues Resolution Hearings (IRH). You will be required to deal with complex cases as and when they arise, especially those involving international matters.

This council holds an excellent reputation and there is also long term prospects for the future. The ideal candidate would have public sector experience, however they are happy to consider those with a private practice background.
