Trainee Solicitor – Legal Services

37 hours per week

Salary Band: 5-6 - £20,541 – 24,657 p.a.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our busy, forward thinking, Legal Services team where you will be trained in all areas of local government practice in a supportive and encouraging environment. The contract covers both contentious and non-contentious work. Previous local government experience is not essential, but applicants should have completed their LPC.

The successful candidate will provide support to our excellent Legal Services team but will have their own caseload and be expected to provide high quality legal advice to officers of the Council, Senior Leadership Team and elected members as well as advising at committee meetings and appearing when necessary at tribunals, appeals and hearings as appropriate.

You will be required to attend evening meetings and must be willing to travel within/outside the Borough when necessary to carry out your duties.

The Legal Services team strive for continuous improvement in service delivery and this post is key to the provision of an effective and efficient legal service and to the delivery of the Council’s plans and priorities.

For an informal discussion about the post please contact Francesca Whyley, Service Manager – Legal Services on 0115 9013907.

Closing date is 18 February 2019 at 12 noon.

Interviews will be held in the week commencing 4 March 2019.
