Job Description:

£40,578 - £44,624

We aspire to be the best we can be – as individuals and communities, as a Council and as a city and we won’t let obstacles stand in our way. To that end Legal and Governance is seeking a passionate, creative-thinking lawyer who want to make a difference to join our team doing primarily planning and highways work.

In return, you can expect a rewarding career in the UK’s greenest city within an organisation that recognises the importance of work/life balance and that offers a range of attractive benefits and a friendly and supportive work environment.

We are looking for an experienced planning and highways lawyer, ideally with a background or knowledge of working in Local Government. The successful candidate will be expected to have significant experience in drafting and negotiating all types of planning and highways agreements, Judicial Review matters, attending and briefing Planning Committee and have experience of advising on and supporting planning and highways officers on policy issues.  In addition, experience of day to day supervision a small team of lawyers and professional officers would be of advantage but not essential.

The successful candidate will need to have good technical knowledge and experience in planning and highways. Equally important is to be commercially minded and creative about your work.

Applicants must be organised and able to work under pressure with minimal supervision while still being a valuable team player.  Applicants must also have excellent communication skills enabling them to build strong relationships with clients.

This is a politically restricted post according to the terms of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.

For informal enquiries please contact Scott Fitzjohn on 07717427727.

We are investing in our workforce and are promoting opportunities to our under-represented groups.  We value equality, diversity and inclusion and are focused on increasing the diversity of our workforce, particularly the number of Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic, Disabled and LGBTQ+ people, so that our teams reflect the communities in the city we serve. We are also supporting staff with unpaid caring responsibilities to work flexibly.

It is a great time to join us and we welcome your application.

Under the Disability Confident Scheme, disabled applicants, who meet the essential criteria of this job, are guaranteed an interview.

Full-time employees work 37 hours for 52 weeks of the year and we offer a generous holiday entitlement. We are open to discussions about a wide range of flexible working opportunities which benefit you and the Council, including reduced hour contracts, working part-time or as a job share.

Closing date: 28 June 2022
