As a result of changes and growth within the department we are looking for three motivated Childcare Lawyers to join us.  

This is an opportunity to join a busy, but friendly supportive  and very well regarded team, and to undertake stimulating and rewarding work with the satisfaction that comes from helping to achieve better outcomes for vulnerable children and young people.

We are based in City Centre offices close to the region’s main Family Court. Our well established team enjoys a good relationship with our client department, having grown and adapted with them to help them achieve their objectives over the years. Our new colleagues will help us  to continue this, and to build upon the strong foundations we have. 

We have a track record of helping team members develop their professional expertise in the childcare field and encourage in house advocacy. The successful applicants will be expected to work largely unsupervised and to provide support to other members of the team. Local Government experience would be an advantage.

We are committed to fairness and social justice and welcome applications from everyone. We value our diverse workforce and aim to work together to make the most of our differences.
