We require a skilled litigator and court advocate to join our team. At a time of ambitious, complex and far-reaching transformation at our Council, your legal expertise will make a huge difference. We will rely on your specialist knowledge, sage advice and insightful challenge to ensure we make a success of change for the benefit of all our communities.
Ideally you will be a qualified Solicitor or Barrister, although we will also consider applicants with a level 6 legal qualification such as a Legal Executive (CILEx), with relevant specialist experience in providing a legal service to the General Litigation Team. The work load will involve handling your own case load relating to key Community Safety, Enforcement and Regulatory matters. This will consist of both criminal and civil litigation and will include environmental prosecutions such as fly-tipping, littering, breaches of PSPO’s, committal proceedings and regulatory prosecutions including food safety, trading standards, animal welfare and health and safety. The work will also include anti-social behaviour applications, injunctions, planning injunctions and enforcement, possession proceedings.
Your track record includes problem solving, advising senior managers, undertaking research and keeping abreast of legislative changes. As impressive as your legal expertise undoubtedly is what really sets you apart is your flair for liaising, negotiating, influencing and collaborating with people at all levels, across departmental and organisational boundaries.
