Due to the continued exciting and dynamic growth in our City, we have a number of vacancies within our Legal Department for qualified Lawyers with various specialisms, and we are looking for experienced, enthusiastic and innovative people to join us on our journey.

Peterborough City Council is a unique and high performing local authority and our staff are at the centre of our success.
Our City is a thriving, regional centre for commerce, transport and leisure.

Peterborough is home to approximately 200,000 people and a significant number of local businesses. We are a council central to the success of Peterborough, welcoming hundreds of commuters and visitors each day. It is our job not only to meet but also exceed, the needs of different communities within the city.

We work individually and together to ensure we deliver excellent services for the public. Our ambition is to create a bigger and better Peterborough through sustainable development and growth so that every neighbourhood remains a great place to live, work and visit.

We are looking for qualified lawyers (Barristers, Solicitors or Legal Executives) with at least two years PQE who either have experience of working in a Local Authority or similar environment, or who can adapt current skillsets to move into the public sector.

The Commercial contracts team have a vacancy for a lawyer who is experienced in dealing with commercial contract work and preferably has knowledge and experience of dealing with procurement projects in a Local Authority, or similar setting. 

The team comprises of a Senior Lawyer, 5 lawyers and two legal officers. This is a wide and varied role and the candidate will be able to work in an efficient and proactive way, looking to provide advice and support to internal client departments across the Council, and in addition, to other Local Authorities for whom we provide a service. Work areas include, contract drafting and variations, including GDPR variations, Academy Conversions, support in relation to major development projects, governance matters, advice in relation to shared services agreements, procurement projects and various ad hoc day to day requests for advice.

Our Legal Team
The Legal Department at Peterborough City Council is a 48 officer strong team comprised of four sections:- Planning & Property, Commercial Contract & Procurement, Child Protection and Litigation.

The team is made up of lawyers and legal officers and has administrative support to ensure efficient delivery of service.  We serve not only our own internal PCC client departments, with a range of support across the various service areas, but we also provide external legal support to other Local Authorities.

In August 2018, we re-located from our historical home at the Town Hall in the City Centre, to Sand Martin House, which is a brand new, purpose-built Headquarters situated in the heart of the newly redeveloped embankment area, Fletton Quays, which offers residential accommodation, retail units, office space and hotels amidst beautiful landscaped and open public areas. Our offices offer an amazing, modern space to work, alongside our policy of agile working which allows maximum flexibility within a role to officers thus affording a better work-life balance, something we are all striving for in our modern working lives.

For those considering a commute, Peterborough is 50 minutes by train from London, and we have excellent access to the A1 making us a viable option to travel to work with great transport links.

There is ample parking in and around our offices for those who require it, and easy access to the City Centre, which is just a 5 minute walk away.  We are situated on the embankment of the River Nene which offers a scenic and open environment to enjoy immediately outside the office building.  If you are looking for a new challenge, and possibly a new location to work within, Peterborough has plenty to offer.

The closing date for applications is: 24 February 2020 and we will hold interviews during the week commencing 2 March 2020
