Description

Public Law Solicitor

An interesting opportunity has arisen with this multi-national firm for a junior solicitor to join the public law and health projects team in Leeds.

The firm has a really strong reputation for its work in the public sector and for commercial solicitors looking for something a little different and a lot more varied, this is an interesting opportunity.

The team operates out of 3 main locations in the UK and works closely together as a national team, collaborating on larger projects across office. They work with central & local government, non-departmental public bodies, NHS clients, education sector clients, statutory bodies, regulators, charities and private sector health & social care clients.

They handle a broad range of commercial and regulatory work on behalf of public bodies and health sector clients, including advisory work in relation to general public law principles, judicial review matters, Equality Act matters, human rights compliance issues, data protection and freedom of information, commercial contracts in the public sector, charity law, procurement and drafting of directions, regulations and policies.

The ideal candidate will be from NQ up to around 2 years' PQE and be committed to providing legal services to the public sector. You will either need to demonstrate that you have already gained experience in this sector or have a demonstrable interest in it, either through previous work experience or voluntary work. It is unlikely that you will have experience in all of the practice areas handled by this team, but experience in information law, commercial, charity law or procurement will certainly be an advantage.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
