One of our highly regarded London Boroughs is looking for a Childcare Advocate to join their in-house legal team for an initial 3-month assignment.

The ideal Childcare Advocate will have experience conducting advocacy on childcare cases at various hearings including contested hearings lasting up to 10 days. You will be responsible for providing advice and case work on matters to include advice at planning/strategy meetings, issuing applications, liaising with client and all parties and instructing experts. Advocacy is the primary focus of the case and so the successful candidate will not be expected to carry their own caseload. You will be expected to have recent experience of Care Proceedings cases as well as PLOs, IRHs, CMCs and Directions hearings.

Previous experience within Local Government is beneficial, however if you have undertaken similar work within another sector, you are more than welcome to apply.

The role will require the candidate to attend the local courts. The client is offering working from home with this role.

Due to the urgent nature of the role, we are seeking candidates available on no more than two weeks’ notice.

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.


If you have not heard from us within a 48 hour timeframe your application has not been successful and your details have not been retained. LAW Absolute acts as an employment business for temporary recruitment and as an employment agency for fixed term contract and permanent recruitment.
