Employer type:

Job Description:

£40,221 - £44,428 per annum (relocation allowance will also be considered)

Ready for a change? Can you demonstrate good technical skills? Do you command the respect and trust of colleagues and clients? Are you a problem solver? If so, then we want you to join our growing friendly, supportive and well respected team.

The Practice
Legal Services Lincolnshire (LSL) is a shared legal service hosted by the county council, offering legal advice to the county council, to six of the county's district and borough councils as well as other public sector clients. We are looking for an enthusiastic lawyer for our adult care team who has a passion for local authority work.

The role and area of law
Adult care law involves Court of Protection proceedings, Safeguarding work, Mental Health applications and advice on all aspects of the Care Act 2014. You will be joining a small team of lawyers and legal officers who are responsible for providing timely legal advice in often sensitive and complex cases including conducting court proceedings on behalf of the client(s). This area of work is undergoing significant legal reform and policy change and it is therefore a very exciting time to join the team. Do you have experience in this field or can you evidence good transferable skills (including advocacy) to move into this growing and ever evolving area of the law? No two days are the same. Is this the exciting new challenge you have been looking for?

About you
You will be a qualified Solicitor, Barrister or Legal Executive, ideally with experience in this field of law. Applications may be considered if you do not have legal experience  of working and advising in this area of the law but you are able to demonstrate transferable legal skills (including advocacy) with experience in working in a legal environment/office.  If you have the right skills, attitude and a passion for the role we will help you develop the rest. You will be well supported and we guarantee you will find this a professionally rewarding and fulfilling role!

The council has a smarter working policy which does provide a good degree of flexibility between home and office working. This post does however require some office attendance on a weekly basis and attendance at any court hearings which are not dealt with remotely.

What we offer
We care about our staff so we want to offer you a competitive salary, generous holidays, ability to purchase additional leave, staff benefits scheme and access to our LGPS pension scheme. It is important to us that you have an excellent work/life balance.

Lincolnshire is a great place to live and work. It has an impressive castle and Cathedral, with the medieval quarter being a great contrast to the lively and youthful feel of this University City. If you are looking for an opportunity to work in a beautiful city with a great team of colleagues then look no further, please grasp this exciting opportunity and come and join our team. You won't look back.

Closing date: 25 February 2024
Interview dates: 4 & 5 March 2024
