Local Government has changed dramatically in recent years as funding from Government continues to be reduced, but here in South Kesteven we remain an ambitious Council with growth plans at the top of our agenda. The district has tremendous potential and we believe that by working in our communities and concentrating on growth we can achieve our vision, which is to help our towns and villages thrive by creating vibrant communities where people want to live, work and invest. We have a new and ambitious Political Leadership Team now in place, who are determined to deliver change to improve the services offered to residents and for the visitors to our communities.

This is an important role in helping us to achieve our ambitions. You will manage, supervise and carry out a full breadth of the council’s legal work and take specific responsibility for advice and transactional work on property developments, planning and commercial matters for South Kesteven. You will also act as the deputy monitoring officer to ensure good corporate governance throughout the organisation.

As a qualified solicitor, barrister or legal executive, you will have experience in managing commercial property transactions, whether gained through a specialist or generalist role.
