Closing date midnight 15 November 2020
At Leicestershire County Council we place a very high value on job satisfaction for our childcare lawyers.  This is why we have designed the childcare team to ensure that each lawyer:
*is provided with case work support;
*has the opportunity to focus on quality written and verbal advice work;
*has space and time to undertake advocacy where appropriate (we encourage advocacy but are not an ‘in-house advocacy team’);
*has the opportunity to mentor colleagues in the team, particularly paralegals. 
*has high quality supervision and support from their management team (two team leaders and an Assistant Head of Law all very experienced in this area of law) ;
*has effective IT systems in place to enable flexible and efficient working away from the office.
In addition we offer a work culture that reflects the councils’ core values of trust and respect, positivity, flexibility and openness and transparency.
We recognise the importance of a proper work/life balance and employee wellbeing, offering a generous pension, access to a lifestyle benefits programme, a campus equipped with a canteen, shop and restaurant which is very close to good transport networks and offering free on site staff car parking.
We welcome applications from candidates who have not worked in the local government legal sector before and/or who are looking for a career change and/or who may be returning to work after a break.
Please note that in line with government guidance on Covid-19, the majority of employees are currently working remotely. The interviews for this post will take place remotely via Microsoft Teams.
