Are you a Solicitor or Legal Executive looking for the opportunity to join a leading local authority?

Hampshire County Council is recognised nationally as one of the highest performing local authorities in the UK. A forward-looking local authority, it offers a pleasant working environment, flexible working, an excellent work/life balance, a commitment to training and development and a central and well-connected Head Office location in the heart of the city of Winchester.

We have an exciting opportunity for a qualified commercial contracts and procurement lawyer (qualified Solicitor, Barrister, Legal Executive or equivalent) to join the Hampshire Legal Services’ Commercial Contracts and Procurement Team. This is an in-house lawyer role where you will work individually and as part of a friendly team, providing professional and commercial advice to client departments and a wide range of other organisations delivering public services, such as fire and rescue authorities, national park authorities, maintained and academy schools and police and crime commissioners.

The Commercial Contracts and Procurement team, are a close-knit unit who enjoy working across a plethora of fascinating projects. Taking on tasks that are as challenging as they are career-defining, our people advise on complex large-scale projects that enable the departments to achieve their ambitious targets. We offer a unique level of support that provides a valuable opportunity to further your career in our well-respected team.

About you
A dynamic and enthusiastic individual, you will assist with a full and varied caseload. The work we do is highly valued, important, and fundamental to the County Council's corporate priorities, so you will need to be highly resilient and motivated. You will be supported by a strong team with a genuine sense of community.

What we can offer you
Here at Hampshire Legal Services we pride ourselves on the breadth and depth of the difference we can make. We enable the County Council to make positive changes and deliver more for residents across the County. Already one of the largest local authority legal teams in the country, the demand for our services is increasing and this is creating new opportunities. This role offers the chance to work at the heart of Local Government and to contribute towards the vision for Hampshire County Council's future.

Hampshire County Council offers excellent benefits, including access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, family friendly policies and flexible working. We envisage that this role can be carried out largely remotely but with some office-based working required to support business needs.
