Job Description:

£43,467 to £46,129 per annum - Grade 10 or £49,936 to £49,442 per annum - Grade 11, dependent on qualifications

Work for a Council Company dealing with Housing.  The Council is recruiting for an enthusiastic and committed Team Manager to lead the Contentious Team within Legal Services.

The Legal Service is structured into two teams dealing with either contentious or non-contentious matters. However the two Teams work closely together.

This role will appeal to candidates who have the drive to lead a small team of lawyers within the Contentious Team as well as conducting a full caseload personally.

As the successful candidate leading the Contentious Team your time will be spent managing the team and its relationship with clients, reviewing cases, providing advice and undertaking advocacy for a wide range of housing cases, other civil cases and prosecutions. You will be required to conduct civil litigation matters in the County Court as there will be a strong emphasis on social housing and community safety.

Legal Services provide advice to both Councils as well as North East

Derbyshire District Council’s Company “Rykneld Homes Limited”.

The post holder will also assist where necessary in the role of advising elected Members at meetings of Council, Executive and Committees.  There may also be the possibility of being designated as Deputy Monitoring Officer at one or both Councils, depending upon skills, abilities and experience.

The technical skills are important but equally the right candidate will be decisive, collaborative and adept at building effective relationships and partnerships. You should be committed to service improvement and providing top class services to clients, partners and elected members.

You must have a relevant qualification and experience of working within a similar area of work. A willingness to contribute to a wider joint service is essential.

The Council operates a flexible working policy.

Closing Date: 27 September 2020
