We are offering an exciting opportunity to join a busy in-house Lexcel accredited Legal Services Department with a forward thinking local authority. In addition to a competitive salary there is a generous holiday allowance, pension and an opportunity for flexible working.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Lawyer with post qualification experience. Previous local government experience is desirable but not essential.

You will be keen to develop your existing experience in property related matters. Experience of planning and/or highways law would also be desirable but not essential. You will have a diverse caseload in these areas, which will include acquisitions and disposals of land, drafting agreements and notices, and providing advice to Council members and officers.

For an informal discussion relating to this role, please contact either Stuart Fletcher on (01709) 823523 or Lesley Doyle on (01709) 254727.

Applications from Women, people from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities and Disabled People are welcomed as under-representation currently exists at this level within the organisation. Section 159 of the Equality Act 2010 applies.

This post will have access to the Public Services Network, if successful you will be required to apply for a disclosure of criminal records check at the Basic level (unspent criminal convictions). Further information can be found at www.disclosurescotland.co.uk

Closing date: 20 August 2017
