Bring your ambitions. Make a positive impact.

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has ambitious plans for growth – all backed by solid resources. There’s an exciting future ahead, which means a unique opportunity for you to join this dynamic and performance-focused department. Working across a shared service, we bring a refreshingly client-orientated approach in everything we do, as well as scope and variety that’s unusual in our sector.

Supporting the Legal Services Manager and Head of Law and Governance, this diverse role will see you take a hands on role in leading and developing a team, overseeing the implementation and review of practice management standards, shaping information for management purposes in addition to providing expert advice on complex and high value matters relating to planning, litigation and public law.

To take on this role, you will be a qualified solicitor or barrister with sound experience of litigation/planning, as well as a proven leader who can provide strong and clear guidance as you advise and influence thinking at all levels. This will be matched by the ability to translate complex legal issues into easily understood terms, plus the credibility and communication skills to make a positive impact from day one.

The council signs up to the Disability Confident scheme (formerly known as the ‘Two Ticks’ scheme). If you have declared a disability on the application form we can guarantee you an interview if you meet the essential criteria for the job.

Closing date for applications: 4 March 2018.
