Civil Litigation Solicitor
Locum Civil Litigation Solicitor, Birmingham City Centre, Competitive Salary, Leading Local Authority
Your new company
Due to an increased workload, we are now looking to recruit a Locum Solicitor to work in the heart of the city centre for a minimum of 3 months, with the possibility of being extended further. Birmingham City Council is the largest single local authority in Europe offering a range of opportunities and regeneration. With Birmingham and the surrounding areas continuing to develop, the council pride itself to make life better for the millions of people who live and work in the city.
Your new role
As a Locum Civil Litigation Solicitor, you will be working in the Civil and Personal Injury Team at Birmingham City Council. The main focus of the role will be to work alongside the current team of Assistant Solicitors handling most of the Civil matters within the department. These will range from disputes surrounding properties such as boundary issues to negligence, all falling within Civil Litigation. There may also be a degree of advocacy work required in order to represent the Council. Please note that this role will not require any involvement in Personal Injury or Housing as these are covered elsewhere in the department.
What you'll need to succeed
As a qualified Solicitor, you will have a strong background working within Civil Litigation and experience of handling disputes. Public Sector experience would be highly beneficial, but not essential. If you are from a Personal Injury background, you will be able to transfer your skills to a public sector setting and display an understanding of dispute resolution and Civil Litigation.
What you'll get in return
You will be working with an employer who is an accredited Investor in People and who are renowned for their supportive culture that can offer flexible working. You will be covering a range of potential projects within the council and have input into lots of different areas, offering a great deal of variety and flexibility. You will be based in their office in the heart of the city centre and be able to work around other offices of Legal Services and paid a competitive salary. It will be a great opportunity to be in charge of your own work and improve on your experience with a leading local authority.
