Senior Solicitor/Barrister/FCILEx
£44,863 - £56,075

Birmingham Children's Trust continues to go from strength to strength.

The Trust has invested in its legal practice across the last two years, in both growing the capacity of the team and strengthening its capability at a senior level.  This has also enabled the Trust to provide our solicitors and legal assistants with a strong framework of support at induction and with their career progression.

The Senior Solicitor/Barrister/FCILEx is open to those with management responsibility. Taking responsibility for the more complex and challenging cases and providing guidance and support to other members of the team. Conducting advocacy on contested and non contested cases. With the vast majority of court hearings still being conducted remotely, there may be occasional instances where the cases are physically heard in court.

You will be experienced in public childcare law either from private practice or other sector.

The recent launch of the Birmingham & Solihull Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) pilot will provide you with an opportunity of experiencing the successes of an alternative family court for care proceedings.

The role is currently home-based with a structured induction and daily support from the team, and Head of Service/Principal Lawyer.
