About Haringey
Haringey is a fantastic place to live and work – the world in one borough. A place brimming with creativity, personality, radicalism, and community. It is a place where we stand up for each other. A place that is proudly distinctive. We’ll be celebrating all this and more as the “rebel borough” when we are the 2027 London Borough of Culture.

Our history champions change-makers and everyday rebels; revelling in our differences, battling discrimination, championing equality, and doing things our own way. Haringey’s people are a huge asset, with knowledge, expertise, and passion. Our staff members embody our organisational values: Caring, Creative, Courageous, Collaborative and Community-focused. These values keep us looking forward, ambitious for the future, and continuously striving to do our very best for all of our residents.

Our contract lawyers will be required to provide advice on a wide range of contracts to include but not limited to: Contracts for goods and services, JCT and NEC construction contracts, contractual disputes, advising on public procurement. The ability to work on a full and varied caseload, is essential. The role offers the opportunity to develop a strong understanding of local government/public sector contracts and procurement. Candidates with relevant experience from both the public and private sector are encouraged to apply. Candidates with private sector experience must have a solid understanding of how local authorities operate and demonstrate their ability to transfer knowledge and skills to successfully deliver a service within a local government context.

About the team
We have a highly regarded collaborative, supportive and friendly team which is central to the wide range of work connected with Haringey’s projects and ambitious plan across the borough. You will be part of a team of 7 in a Lexcel Accredited legal service. You will benefit from working alongside experienced colleagues who are helpful and have had exposure to multiple high value and complex contract and procurement matters and who are happy to share their knowledge.

About you
The successful candidate will be an admitted Solicitor, Barrister or Filex with a current practising certificate. You will be a team player, thrive in a collaborative environment, be a critical thinker and have a positive attitude. Excellent client care skills and the ability to work under pressure will allow you to thrive in this environment.

At Haringey Council we are committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included, and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits of a diverse workforce so welcome applications from all ethnicities and communities so that we continue to make a difference to our residents and community.  Our benefits package includes a leave entitlement of 31 days + bank holidays, potential hybrid working opportunities, health and wellbeing support, a generous local government pension scheme and a range of discount schemes across leisure and culture that provide both financial and money-saving discounts.
