Ref. 60331

Qualified Childcare Lawyer

  • Location: Leicester, England
  • Salary: £45 - £55 per hour
  • Type: Temporary / Full Time

Seven Resourcing is working with Leicester City Council to recruit a Childcare Lawyer for their Advocacy Team.

Initial 3 month contact with the potential of extension.

£55 per hour umbrella rate which is very competitive.

Job Purpose:

To conduct court hearings on behalf of the local authority, in children and other related matters.


Our lawyers predominantly work from home but if they are required to attend Court for in person hearings then they would do this. So ideally we would want someone able to do this but we would be open to further discussion on this, subject to the experience of the candidate. Also, Leicester’s Courts are usually only requesting in person hearings if necessary so they continue to allow standard hearings to take place remotely or request parents and their legal reps to attend in person i.e. hybrid hearings. Therefore, there are more likely to be a need for remote hearings as opposed to in person.

Applicant Requirements:

  • Qualifications: Degree to be a Qualified Lawyer
  • Experience: 2+ years working as a Childcare Lawyer in the UK
  • Compliance: Up to date passport and DBS.
  • Travel: Clean UK driving license with the ability to commute to and from work independently.
  • Hours: 37 hours p/w.
