Essex Legal Services (ELS) is the in-house legal service of ECC, one of the largest local authorities in the country. Its innovative vision has led to ELS being at the forefront of developing shared legal services and sharing its expertise and experience with a wide range of public bodies.

Our Service has a wide ranging client base and is committed to increasing and expanding our range of services.

We would expect a lawyer with the given PQE to have gained the level of experience required but this does not preclude applications from those with more or less PQE.
  • Ability to establish credibility with directors, senior management and other key stakeholders;
  • Ability to contribute effectively in a large complex organisation with plans for radical change and improvement;
  • Within the Property team you will require knowledge and understanding of providing legal advice in a public sector setting: including but not limited to sales, purchases, easements and wayleaves, leases and licences.
