Employer type:

Local Authority
col-wide   

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 passionate, creative-thinking Lawyers that want to make a difference to join our Corporate Governance and Regulatory Team doing SEND Tribunal 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 versatile Lawyers with a “can do” approach to provide legal advice and support on all aspects of special educational needs, to include but not limited to decision making, policy and procedure.
 
The successful candidates will need to have good technical knowledge and experience in special educational needs and be able to manage a varied caseload of SEND Tribunal appeals, including advocacy in case management hearings and final hearings in the First Tier SEND Tribunal, with minimum supervision.
 
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.
 
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.

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.
