You will undertake civil litigation in the county court. The role consists mostly of debt recovery and enforcement work relating to service charges, including advocacy. You will be expected to undertake advocacy on rent possession cases in the county court, with some potential to carry out housing litigation.

You will receive broad exposure, making a direct impact on the council's activities. You will earn a competitive hourly rate, and there is strong potential this contract will be extended on a rolling basis.
