Whether you join our Corporate or Social Care team, you will have a positive impact on the local community. Sometimes the roles can be challenging and there will be competing pressures and deadlines. However, you will be supported by experienced managers and be provided with the tools needed to do your job.

Within the Social Care team, you will undertake advocacy and court work, together with providing advice to officers and elected members, and undertaking case management to include drafting and negotiating. Our children’s services have a good Ofsted rating.

As part of the Corporate team, you will provide advice to officers and members, effectively conducting legal matters relating to corporate governance, highways, planning, housing, property, development and regeneration, commercial matters, construction, business models and procurement.

We are a flexible service. You will have the opportunity to work from other offices within Bolton and to work from home on occasion, as directed by business need, which can reduce travelling time. Furthermore, we operate a flexitime system which allows flexibility in your working life. In return, we are looking for the same flexibility from you in relation to the role.

We are a modern and progressive employer, our Lawyers have access to technology that enables them to work differently. You will have the latest software on your touch screen laptop, allowing you to work remotely and flexibly. We also have an excellent case management system and access to online research facilities. We are based in newly renovated premises in Bolton town centre, with nearby parking and access to rail and bus networks.
