LAW Absolute is working with a local authority based in London who are seeking a Childcare Lawyer to cover a period of maternity for 12 months.

The successful Childcare Lawyer will be required to take responsibility for a full conduct of cases including both PLO and cases in proceedings. You will be required to show strong advocacy skills and a track record of managing complex work. The councils Childcare Lawyers are expected to attend Adoption Panel and undertake advocacy at court. It is essential you possess previous local government experience as you will need to carry a caseload from day one with minimal supervision.

Candidates happy to carry a caseload and undertake advocacy are encouraged to apply. The council is currently working remotely, however this will change in due course and candidates will be required to work across both the office and at home. You must have a current practising certificate to be considered for the role.


Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.

At LAW Absolute we endeavour to respond to all applications within 48 hours. However due to the volume of applications we receive we may not be able to respond to every candidate individually.
