There has never been a better time to join Nottingham City Council. Known for inclusivity and innovation, we have also won a host of Employee Benefits Awards, are a leading employer of Apprentices and we are continually working around the clock to deliver high quality services for Nottingham’s citizens, visitors and investors.
Our aspiration is to make Nottingham a Great City, but to do this we need to be a Great Council, provide Great Services and recruit and develop a Great Workforce.
Join an organisation that gives you extra – we will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern ways of working, will double your monthly pension contributions, offer a very generous 25-32 days holiday package each year (exclusive of public bank holidays and dependent on length of service) and give you the option to purchase up to 28 days additional holiday tax-free!
We are looking for an enthusiastic Solicitor/Barrister to join our busy Children and Adults Legal Team. We are centrally located in Nottingham City centre, close to the Family Court and within easy reach of all transport links. 
You will provide legal advice and assistance to the Council in respect of Social Care matters. The work is extremely rewarding and varied. The majority of work will be care proceedings, but you will also have the opportunity to give legal advice in respect of the following areas: adoption, fostering, Court of Protection, mental health and general safeguarding children and adults matters.
You will have excellent communication, analytical and drafting skills and be able to manage a full and varied caseload and undertake advocacy in the Family Court.
Whilst recent experience of our work and also working for a local authority would be advantageous, we welcome applications from less experienced applicants who are keen to develop in our areas of work.
Interviews will be held on Monday 4 March 2019.
