Bournemouth Town Hall


Ref: 6352, £36,379 - £39,177 37 hours per week

This is an exciting time for Dorset, with plans underway for local government reorganisation which will see the replacement of Dorset’s nine councils with two new ones. These councils will have greater influence nationally and be better able to work in the best interests of Dorset’s residents and to build a strong and prosperous future Dorset.

Legal Services is a shared service with officers working to support both Bournemouth and Poole Borough Councils. This is a unique time to be joining us, as we face the challenges and exciting opportunities of local government reorganisation while working towards the bold new vision for Dorset.

You will deal with a variety of commercial property and planning matters including leases, licenses, freehold disposals and acquisitions and statutory agreements for the Councils as local planning authority and highway authority.  You will have previous experience of property and/or planning and will be keen to learn about local government practice and to develop expertise in new areas of law, including both public procurement and local government law.

If you would like to discuss this role or have any queries, please contact the Head of Legal Services by e-mail to or by telephone on 01202 451178.

Closing date: 6 May 2018
