We're Hiring - Child Care Lawyer Required

 

 

We have an excellent opportunity for a Child Care Lawyer to join our highly regarded Child Care Law team.

 

We are looking for a specialist care lawyer to develop and manage a caseload of predominantly public law cases.

 

Ideally applicants should be on the Law Society's Children's Panel and be well versed in legal aid regulations and will have, or be prepared to develop, a trusted professional relationship and links with CAFCASS and other child care agencies.

 

We are looking for an individual who can demonstrate they have sensitivity and empathy but at the same time a professional and realistic approach when managing client expectations and dealing with other agencies.

 

You should have excellent advocacy, drafting and interpersonal skills alongside the highest standard of client care; good organisational skills; and the ability to produce consistently high quality work.  If that is you, we would like to hear from you. 

 

We offer a very competitive package alongside good career development opportunities and a working environment that values and cares for its team members. We have held the Law Society’s LEXCEL accreditation for a number of years and we are always striving to make the client and team experience the best that it can be. 

 

Applications for this role will be considered on a full or part time basis with the opportunity to work alongside a great team of established child care lawyers.

 

Please email your CV with covering letter stating your relevant experience to Paul Rollinson, paulrollinson@jwpsolicitors.co.uk
