Torridge is home to some of England’s most diverse and beautiful natural landscapes. Rolling green hills, golden beaches and rugged coastline make up an area covering 984 sq km. The region is a popular tourist destination, with rural businesses drawing upon this asset.


We have two exciting opportunities within our legal team for a Senior Solicitor & Monitoring Officer (at a salary of up to £52,578) and a Solicitor (at a salary of up to £38,052). The successful applicants will be involved in a diverse range of legal matters including property, planning, licencing, dispute resolution, contractual and constitutional/procedural matters. The Senior Solicitor will be the Councils Monitoring Officer and have overall responsibility for the provision of an effective legal service, with the allocation of work reflecting individual preference and expertise.


Both these roles are great opportunities to join an effective and confident Council. Like all Councils we face financial challenges but sound management has placed us in a strong position and our ‘open for business’ approach means that a number of exciting developments are currently taking place. In return we can offer one of the finest working environments in the South West. If you are the person for us, then we will do our very best to find a working arrangement that provides that all important work/life balance.
