Job Description:

£34,935 - £43,380 (PO3 - PO5)
 
Barking and Dagenham is a shared Legal Service with Thurrock Council.

We are looking for a solicitor or barrister with extensive experience in adult social care law and immigration law including but not exhaustive no recourse to public funds cases, age assessment cases, judicial review, and Court of Protection to join the busy adult safeguarding team to undertake stimulating and rewarding work with the satisfaction that comes from helping to achieve better outcomes for vulnerable adults and families.

As a member of the team you will play a key role in contributing to its achievements; maintaining its exemplary Lexcel standards and establishing best practice procedures. Consulting across the business, your influence will extend far further than it would in a traditional legal team, and, as such, the ability to build positive working relationships with others is essential.

Our vision is to be a Legal Service that is recognised nationally as best practice in the public sector.

Experience of adult safeguarding and no recourse to public fund cases is essential. Local Government experience would be an advantage.

You will be able and committed to work in a flexible manner including outside normal office hours, when the role necessitates the same.

You will be expected to manage a workload of adult safeguarding matters providing high quality advice for internal clients and to undertake advocacy.

The banding for this post will depend on experience.

A Criminal Records Bureau Disclosure at Standard/enhanced level will be required for this post.

For an informal discussion on this role, please contact Lindsey Marks, Principal Solicitor Children’s and Adult’s Safeguarding on 07530 262528.
