Liverpool has become the most exciting and rapidly evolving place to live and work in the North-West. This is reflected in the Council's City Law & Governance directorate, which deals with a significant quantity of challenging and stimulating legal work.
The Council seeks an experienced lawyer with a background in commercial contracts, a can-do attitude and a desire to improve public services, to join its Contracts & Commercial team.

This is an opportunity to work in an exciting and forward-thinking local authority as part of a dynamic and multi-disciplinary legal department during the implementation of change and improvement plans. The work will be fast paced and highly varied in nature.
We offer agile working, a generous annual leave entitlement, local government pension scheme, flexible working arrangements and a work environment which gives you the opportunity to use and develop your skills within a forward-thinking service.
