Job Description:

Grade 10 - £44,624 rising to £47,665

Uttlesford District is consistently identified as one of the best places to live in the UK. We’re ideally located, with easy access to London and Cambridge and an international airport on our doorstep. And yet, the district still retains its rural character, alongside its market towns and villages.
 
We are looking to appoint an experienced and confident specialist Lead Planning Lawyer for the Council. You will have experience in both contentious and non-contentious areas. The Legal Team is expanding so you will be joining us at an exciting time with plenty of opportunity for development. We are currently recruiting for two other new posts, and you will be working alongside the current established team, a new Legal Services Manager and another senior full-time Planning Lawyer.

You will have responsibility as Lead Planning Lawyer for an interesting and varied planning law caseload and for providing supervision as required to a second full time Planning Lawyer.  Successful candidates need to demonstrate excellent written and verbal communication alongside first-rate organisational and time-management skills. A thorough knowledge of planning law and experience of dealing with a wide range of matters is necessary.
 
The role will be varied and exciting. Working with a fabulous team we offer great working conditions, with a high level of flexibility, a good work-life balance and the support and opportunity to achieve your potential.
 
If you are qualified as a Solicitor or Barrister or FILEX we would like to hear from you.
 
Benefit package for the above post includes:
  • Hybrid Working
  • Paid holidays
  • Contributory Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Employee Assistance Programme
