Join our national award winning team in Brighton and Hove!

We are looking for a confident and highly motivated lawyer to join our contracts and procurement legal team. You will manage a varied case load as well as having the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge. You will be responsible for providing advice and guidance at all stages of the procurement process, including drafting and negotiating commercial contracts and agreements.

You will also have the opportunity to work on some of the Council’s major projects.  The Council has an exciting programme of regeneration projects such as Preston Barracks, the Waterfront and Circus Street which are changing the landscape of the city. Increasingly the Council is also changing the way it delivers services and the successful candidate is likely to have the opportunity to work on challenging complex projects such as the project to set up a charitable trust to run the Royal Pavilion.

Experience of contracts and procurement law is desirable. Excellent client care, communication skills, a positive attitude and a willingness to develop in the role are essential.

You will see a real impact in the city as a result of your work and benefit from our genuine commitment to on-going professional development. This is further enhanced by our developing partnership with the legal services of East Sussex County Council, West Sussex County Council, and Surrey County Council as Orbis Public Law.

We are keen to find the right person to fulfil this exciting role and are keen to encourage all applications. We will consider part-time and job share proposals. Flexible working is also available. Please contact Isabella Sidoli, Senior Lawyer, on 01273 291513 or isabella.sidoli@brighton-hove.gov.uk or Alice Rowland, Head of Commercial Law, on 01273 291503 or alice.rowland@brighton-hove.gov.uk if you would like to discuss this or anything else about the role.
