Salary: £58,774.67 plus £3,200 London weighting (if London based)

Location: Based at any of our offices in Manchester, London, Cardiff  or Glasgow (with frequent travel to London and Manchester)

Our role at the Equality and Human Rights Commission is to stand up for freedom, compassion and justice in our changing times. We do it by promoting and upholding equality and human rights ideals and laws across England, Scotland and Wales. Our work is driven by a simple belief; if everyone gets a fair chance in life, we all thrive.

This new position offers an exciting opportunity to head up the Commission’s new enforcement team in the Legal network.

The successful candidate will:
• Be a qualified solicitor or barrister entitled to practise in England and Wales with substantial relevant post qualification experience, or have equivalent experience (sufficient to sign-off legal submissions, and other legal documents such as terms of reference and action plans during a formal investigation)
• Have experience of managing a team, and supervising legal staff undertaking regulatory enforcement action and/or complex litigation
• Have specialist legal expertise in equality law, and knowledge of human rights law, and the ability to advise under pressure and at short notice

This role can be based from one of our offices in either Manchester, London, Cardiff  or Glasgow (with frequent travel to London and Manchester) and has access to a number of benefits including flexible working, 30 days annual leave and Civil Service Pension Scheme and payment of professional subscriptions.
