JOB TITLE: Locum Adult Social Care Lawyer
LOCATION: Devon / Home Working
SALARY: Up to £55 per hour inside IR35

Looking for a change? This busy local authority is looking for an experienced and motivated Adult Social Care Lawyer to join their Legal Services team on a temporary basis whilst they undergo a particularly busy time. The successful Adult Social Care Lawyer will oversee the whole process of each case from pre-proceedings through to completion of the final hearing. It’s fast-paced and hard work at times but having such a significant influence will mean you’ll play a huge role in ensuring successful outcomes for the adults concerned. The role will deal primarily with Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards challenges and Mental Capacity Act decision-making, but the successful Legal Professional will also be required to assist in other areas of Adult Social Care including Ordinary Residence disputes, Care Act duties and Mental Health Act matters.

Applications are sought after from experienced Adult Social Care solicitors, barristers or Legal Executives that will have gained upwards of 3 years’ experience in a similar role. Your contributions will help to ensure vulnerable adults are supported to live as independently as possible. Our client is looking for someone who can hit the ground running so experience in Adult Social Care law is essential. Local authority experience is not necessary. Local Government experience is not essential but some experience of advising on the Mental Capacity Act is required for this post. Regular homeworking is available with this role but occasional office presence and attendance to hearings will be required.

If you would like further information or would be interested to apply for this vacancy please contact Zoe Jones on 020 7183 8586 or email or contact us via LinkedIn
