Childcare solicitors x 2
At Leicestershire County Council we place a very high value on job satisfaction for our childcare lawyers.  This is why we have redesigned our childcare team over the last six months to ensure that each lawyer has:-
*dedicated one to one case work support from an experienced and highly motivated paralegal;
*the opportunity to focus on quality written and verbal advice work;
*space and time to undertake advocacy where appropriate (we encourage advocacy but are not an ‘in-house advocacy team’);
*the opportunity to mentor colleagues in the team, particularly paralegals. 
*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) ;
*systems in place to enable flexible and efficient working away from the office.
In addition we offer a work culture that recognises the importance of a proper work/life balance and employee wellbeing, 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.
If you have any queries about these roles please ring Michael Oliver (Assistant Head of Legal) on 0116 3056025.
We particularly welcome applicants from black, minority, ethnic (BME) communities, disabled people and lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) communities, as they are currently under represented within our workforce.
