Are you a Childcare Lawyer or Advocate looking for a new in-house advocacy role within an incredibly friendly and supportive team?

We have a great opportunity for a Childcare Lawyer to join a London Local Authority on a locum basis. Our client is looking for a Childcare Solicitor or Barrister with public care experience to take on an in-house advocacy role, dealing with the team's court work. Previous advocacy experience or experience as a barrister is therefore highly desirable.

The in-house Childcare Advocate will be required to conduct initial hearings, case management hearings, contested initial hearings, and Final Hearings. The ideal candidate will be able to build and maintain positive working relationships with the Court.

Those with experience of working in a local authority are highly desirable due to the nature of the role, but our client is also very interested in hearing from Childcare Lawyers from private practice, or Barristers, who have handled substantial public childcare matters in Court.

The role is mainly working from home for the moment due to the current pandemic but will involve some office attendance in South London, and of course Court hearings will be conducted mainly in person. Our client is also willing to consider some flexible working hours if necessary.

The successful childcare lawyer will join an established team who are friendly and supportive under the guidance of excellent leadership, and will benefit from a long term assignment.

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for shortlisting. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Rayhaneh Tehrani in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.

Sellick Partnership is proud to be an inclusive and accessible recruitment business and we support applications from candidates of all backgrounds and circumstances. We can adapt our processes to accommodate everybody, so please let us know how we can help improve your recruitment experience. Please note, our advertisements use years' experience, hourly rates, and salary levels purely as a guide based on the specific skills set out in the advert. We are happy to consider applications from all candidates who can demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role. Our Consultants assess based on the experience and skills evidenced on the CV. If you do not hear from us within 48 hours, please assume that your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion due to the CV not matching the skill set required.
