We currently have a legal adviser role (Solicitor, Barrister or FILEX) available within our friendly team, with the remit of providing advice relating to all aspects of care proceedings and adoption, including advocacy.

As a legal adviser, you will hold a complex caseload, advising Children’s Services directly on legal aspects of this specialised area of law, and how best to present cases to Court.

The work is varied, important, and fundamental to the County Council’s corporate priorities, so you will need to be highly resilient and motivated. Previous experience is not necessary if you are highly motivated and share our passion in delivering the best for vulnerable children within the Hampshire area, working within a strong team with a genuine sense of community. Applications are welcomed from those newly qualified or wishing a change in specialist area.
 
We can offer great flexible working options for this role; as we have invested heavily in various technologies to support ongoing remote working options. This role is partly carried out remotely but some office-base working will be required to support business needs.
