We’ve got an exciting opportunity available for talented individuals to join our workforce - perhaps this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for? Read on to find out more…
Nottingham City Council is known for inclusivity and innovation, and we are continually working around the clock to deliver 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.
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!
Nottingham City Council is committed to recruiting a talented workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We are a fair and inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and with different abilities. We recruit for diversity and value difference.
We particularly want to hear from you if you are from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community, identify within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community (LGBT) and if you are Disabled - these groups of people are underrepresented in our workforce, and we’d like to reflect our local population more through our recruitment processes.
We have always been open to flexible working and the COVID-19 pandemic provided us with some new options to work in a completely different way. We welcome a conversation about flexible working at the point of interview.
The Role:

We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic Employment lawyer to join us in our busy and friendly Litigation and Dispute Resolution team.
This is a permanent position. The role sits within the Litigation and Dispute Resolution team, however the work will predominantly involve Employment Law, including areas such as:
  • TUPE
  • Unfair Dismissal
  • Discrimination
  • Equal Pay
  • Whistleblowing
  • Compromise Agreements
You will therefore need experience of Employment law casework and be able to work unsupervised on Employment cases; have excellent communication, analytical and drafting skills and be able to manage a caseload at the appropriate level.   
There will be some elements of Education law included in the role as well.
Although we are centrally located in Nottingham and within easy reach of all transport links in and out of the city, colleagues in Legal are currently working from home. Going forward, hybrid working arrangements are likely to be in place for the role. 
  • Solicitor admitted for not less than 2 years or Barrister having completed a Pupillage and called to the Bar for not less than 4 years.
  • Ability to organise own workload and work under pressure with minimum supervision.
  • At least 1 year of experience in Employment Law, including experience of dealing with TUPE related matters.
  • Strong team ethos and proactive approach.
