Do you want to join us at an exciting time for Legal Services? Do you enjoy a challenge?  Do you like to make a difference? Do you want to work in a beautiful part of the Country for two forward-thinking shared authorities?

To support the Head of Legal & Monitoring Officer, we have created two smaller teams: a Regulatory Team and Property & Contracts Team and there are opportunities within each of these teams, in the following areas:
  •     Principal Regulatory & Governance Lawyer (Lead) to lead the Regulatory Arm
  •     Principal Property & Contracts Lawyer (Lead) to lead the Property Arm
  •     Principal Regulatory Lawyer
  •     Principal Property Lawyer
  •     Senior Regulatory Lawyers x 2
We are offering opportunities to customer-focused individuals who welcome change and the challenge of delivering improvement. In return, we can offer flexible working in an environment where innovation, challenge and efficiency are key aspects.

Our Councils have adopted new, exciting, innovative and forward-looking corporate strategies setting out our visions and priorities for our unique areas. Consequently, we have restructured and expanded our Legal Services Team to support the delivery of these priorities, creating new opportunities for those that are looking for a challenge in helping shape and enhance this new Legal team.

The main responsibilities are to provide professional legal advice and support to the Councils’ development management, strategic planning, planning enforcement and regulatory functions, together with representing the Councils in courts, inquires and tribunals. The Senior Regulatory Lawyer may also provide legal advice and support to the Development Management and Licensing Committees when necessary.

The Senior Regulatory Lawyer will work with other members of the Legal Services Team to deliver a comprehensive legal service to the Councils. This may involve assisting the Monitoring Officer and the Deputy Monitoring Officers to respond to code of conduct complaints and other governance-related issues.

About us
