The Role
A top ranked professional discipline team work with regulatory bodies, primarily in the health sector but, increasingly, more widely across a number of professional disciplines. 
The work largely involves presenting cases but also requires managing an investigatory caseload where it is alleged that the registrant's fitness to practise is impaired through misconduct, competence or health issues and preparing those cases for hearings before panels and committees of the relevant regulators.
Advocacy typically involves interim and substantive hearings. This includes shorter more straightforward hearings as well as more complex cases such as sexual misconduct, dishonesty allegations/ fraud and serious instances of deficient professional performance. Hearings are usually contested and in the majority of cases the registrants are represented, most often by counsel.  It is likely that there will also be opportunities to appear in the High Court and the First Tier Tribunal on appeals from decisions of the regulators. Depending on experience, there are likely to be other advocacy opportunities arising from other aspects of the department's work.
