My client is a local authority in South Glamorgan, South Wales. Their Legal Services team is seeking to recruit a locum Solicitor or Barrister who will undertake legal work within the area of commercial property & planning law, advising on legal matters and acting on behalf of the Council at hearings, mediations and inquiries.

They are fully supportive of promoting a work life balance and offer a range of flexible working opportunities at all levels. Arrangements including flexible workings hours, term time working, part time, compressed hours, home working and job share arrangements, will all be considered.
This local authority is easily reached by public transport. The offices are surrounded by a range of tourist attractions and urban green spaces and with multiple developments already planned, this city can offer a vibrant lifestyle for its residents.
