Would you like to begin an exciting career in law undertaking varied, high-quality legal work supporting colleagues in providing excellent public service and making a difference within the local community?

We wish to recruit up to three flexible and highly motivated Legal Assistants to join our Legal Teams. It is essential that you have a genuine enthusiasm for a career in law and an excellent approach to public service and client care.

The Role:

The exact nature of the role will vary between the three teams, but you can expect to be a key part of a busy team and at times may be required to undertake work in the other legal teams according to demand. Each of the teams cover several areas of law, so flexibility and a willingness to learn and develop in the role is essential. In return you can expect to receive learning and development opportunities, interesting and varied legal work, gain in-depth knowledge and experience in different areas of legal practice and responsibility commensurate with ability.

As an employee of North Tyneside Council you will feel valued from the moment you join us. We have a comprehensive induction process to ensure you are supported in your role from day one and our experienced and approachable management team will support you to achieve your professional goals.

In return for your valuable contribution you will have access to our excellent benefits package:

• Membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme (for contracts of 3 months or more)
• A supportive Occupational Sick Pay scheme
• A generous annual leave allowance, which increases with service, plus bank holidays
• Annual pay increments up to the top of the salary grade
• A range of flexible working and leave options, including part-time working, to support work/life balance (subject to business requirements)
• Access to Occupational Health services including physiotherapy and counselling
• Our Employee Assistance Programme which includes a telephone helpline and extensive online resources for support and advice
• Extensive training and development opportunities including access to our Learning Pool online platform
• Supported career progression
• Discounted membership of our Leisure Centres including 5 gyms; 4 pools; 2 spas and over 250 classes every week
• The ‘Benefits Plus’ Scheme enabling salary sacrifice for Car Leasing; Cycle to Work Scheme; additional annual leave, public transport season tickets, and professional subscriptions
• Credit Union Savings Scheme

Further information about eligibility can be found on our Benefits and Rewards page on North East Jobs.

We offer a modern, open-plan, working environment with opportunities to use technology to work in a flexible and agile way. Our lawyers operate both autonomously and collaboratively to deliver high performance with light touch management. We provide a supportive environment for the development and maintenance of your professional skills and experience.

If you would like to be part of our team and are committed to providing an excellent legal service in local government we look forward to hearing from you.
