Childcare lawyer required to join a local authority based in London for an initial 3 month period.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a friendly childcare department within a local authority. Due to the fast paced nature of the work, it is important to this team that the successful childcare lawyer demonstrates a positive, can-do attitude, and is able to work with dynamism and professionalism to get the job done in the clients' required timeframes.

The successful candidate will be required to hit the ground running and undertake a full childcare caseload of both public proceedings and pre proceeding matters. Advocacy experience is highly beneficial as our client is looking for someone who can undertake advocacy at Court.

Day to day matters may include;

  • ICO's
  • ISO's
  • EPO's
  • Care orders
  • Supervision orders
  • Advocacy

The workload will be varied, and will also involve attending Legal Planning Meetings, PLO meetings and Advocates meetings.

The ideal Childcare Lawyer will come from a local authority background, although candidates with private practice childcare experience will absolutely be considered.

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Rayhaneh Tehrani in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
