Childcare Legal Assistant required to join a local authority based in Norfolk for an initial 3 month period.

 

This is a fantastic opportunity to undertake a busy Childcare workload within a Local Authority. This is not a purely admin-based Paralegal position, and the successful candidate will have exposure to Childcare cases. Day to day duties will involve;

* Drafting C110 and C2 Forms

* Drafting applications for care and supervision orders

* Preparing bundles for court, counsel and witnesses

* Taking and preparing witness statements

* Corresponding with court, other parties and social workers

* Drafting social worker's statements and care plans

* Preparing case summaries

* Attending Advocate meetings

 

Previous public sector experience is not essential for this role, making it an excellent opportunity for a Family Paralegal or Junior Lawyer with a private practice background to move into Local Government.

 

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Alexis Aarons in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
