We are looking for a bright and confident qualified solicitor (at least 3 years’ post qualification experience) with a bias towards civil litigation but someone who is willing to gain experience in all local government areas, such as housing, planning, environmental health. This is a wonderful opportunity to make your mark in local government.
What we can offer is a great place to work and a great team and the chance to develop in a supportive and professional environment. We will work with you to put in place a structured personal development programme so that you gain strong skills across a wide range of legal subject matters. We are looking for ambitious staff who will grow with us.
At NFDC we believe that all our employees make a valuable contribution to the work of the Council and that's why we encourage a trusting and open culture where each employee is supported and respected equally, where ideas are actively sought and self-development promoted. We also recognise the value of a highly motivated and engaged workforce and we actively encourage a good work/life balance.
If you like the sound of this and have the ambition, motivation, knowledge and experience we're looking for, we would like to hear from you.
