Lawyer (Childcare/NRPF/Adults)

Hackney Council are looking to recruit dynamic, creative and highly skilled lawyers with significant experience of Children's and Adult Social Care matters to join our forward thinking Legal Service.

We are looking for qualified Solicitors or Barristers or Fellows of the Institute of Legal Executives with post-qualification experience of dealing with child care proceedings, adult social care, public law and judicial review matters.

You will be solution focused and driven to achieve successful outcomes for your clients. You will provide a responsive service working closely with colleagues across the Council to deliver key objectives in accordance with the Corporate Plan. These are demanding roles that will require resilience and tenacity along with the determination to achieve results.

You will be responsible for a mixed caseload and must be proactive in dealing with both contentious and non-contentious matters. As the first point of contact for clients and as a legal representative at the Courts, excellent communication skills are essential, but you will also appreciate and exemplify the tact and discretion needed to handle highly confidential and sensitive matters.
