Senior Childcare Lawyer

Senior Childcare Lawyer opportunity with managerial duties!

Great role for an experienced childcare lawyer to join a large and dynamic London Borough Council. This is a locum contract for an initial 3-months, with strong likelihood of extension on an on-going basis. The role is paying between £50 - £60 umbrella rate per hour. The Senior Childcare Lawyer will work remotely for the duration of the assignment, with office attendance needed for team meetings/supervision (likely 3 - 4 times per month).

The Senior Childcare Lawyer will have previous managerial experience, ideally from within local government, but non-local government managers will be considered. Further duties include:

  • Managing a caseload of care cases and pre-proceedings

  • Managing 5 Childcare Lawyers

  • Advising and liaising with social workers and external parties

The council's childcare team are really friendly and welcoming, and paralegal support is provided.

This is a really fantastic opportunity for an experienced lawyer with some managerial experience to build on this and develop within the role. The council is also offering a very competitive rate.

Management isn't often available in locum roles so don't miss out on this great opportunity.

If interested get in touch with Brogan Connolly in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
