Do you want to help lead an award-winning child protection legal service?

Do you want to feel proud of what you and your team achieve?

 We also have a Senior Solicitor (Technical expert – Advocacy) vacancy.  This post-holder will be a member of the strategy and leadership team and contribute to the strategic direction of the team.
