Your new company
Due to the new partnership between Birmingham City Council and Hays, we are now looking to recruit a Locum Childcare Solicitor to work in the heart of the city centre. Birmingham City Council is the largest single local authority in Europe offering a range of opportunities and regeneration. With Birmingham and the surrounding areas continuing to develop, the council pride itself to make life better for the millions of people who live and work in the city.
Your new role
As a Solicitor / Barrister, you will be working within the Child and Adult Social Care Legal Services department to provide legal services to the City Council departments, its officers and employees. You will be responsible for a full caseload where you will be required to oversee case proceedings involving some potentially high profile cases, supervision orders, interim care orders and emergency protection orders.
What you'll need to succeed
As a qualified Solicitor, you would have a minimum of 5 years PQE, however we will consider lower. You will also have experience of working solely in a Childcare department and experience of handling Childcare caseloads and court proceedings.
