There has never been a more exciting time to join Birmingham Children’s Trust as we celebrate our GOOD Ofsted status which we are immensely proud of.

By choosing to work for us you will be part of a supportive, dynamic legal service, contributing to our improvement journey to ‘Outstanding’.

Grade 3 legal assistant is open to those with strong organisational skills.  This is a fantastic opportunity to support lawyers within a legal team on a varied high-quality care caseload, assisting in all aspects of their work, and in time, your own caseload.

You’ll need to demonstrate the ability to work effectively and efficiently, pay attention to detail, work to deadlines and develop and maintain excellent relationships with clients. 

In exchange for your hard work you will be encouraged to learn and develop your skills, enabling you to take your career to the next level.

About you...
The ideal candidate will have experience of working in a legal environment and demonstrate the following skills and capabilities:

  • An understanding of the law relating to family public law
  • An ability to work under pressure and meet competing demands
  • Good organisational skills to ensure deadlines are met
  • Good communication both written and verbal
  • Good IT skills

About us... why we are different as a Trust...
We know and understand that this is hard work, which is challenging at times, that’s why we reward you with a very attractive employment offer and excellent benefits, to name a few:

  • A supportive friendly team who are committed to achieving better outcomes for vulnerable children
  • A strong framework of support through regular supervision; access to shared learning; 24/7 employee assistance programme (mental health and wellbeing support)
  • Flexible and hybrid working where possible. Our working arrangement combines the opportunity to work remotely, subject to the business need, and the requirements of the role to attend Court hearings and meetings in person.
  • Generous contributory pension scheme
  • A generous annual leave package plus bank holidays
  • Salary sacrifice car leasing scheme

If you would like to be part of our passionate and dedicated Children’s Trust Legal team, then don’t hesitate, apply today. 

We are proud to be an Equal Opportunities Employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees - a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit.

We actively deliver services that are culturally responsive to the needs of the children, parents and carers we work with to deliver equality, diversity and inclusivity in all we do.
