Education Solicitor

£46,000.00 - 70,000.00
Private Practice
Contract Type:
Permanent role
Reference Number:


Are you a corporate, commercial or charity solicitor with an interest in working for clients in the education sector? If so, we'd be keen to hear from you. Our client is a highly regarded international firm acting for a global base of education clients from its Birmingham office.

BCL Legal is pleased to be working with this leading international firm in its recruitment of an experienced solicitor to join its highly respected education team. Given the scarcity of solicitors with experience in this area, those with education, corporate, charity or commercial backgrounds will be considered if a passion for this area of law can be demonstrated.

The successful solicitor will ideally have between two and eight years' post qualification experience preferably advising on governance, constitutional, regulatory and commercial matters for clients in the education sector, although, as mentioned, the education focus is not essential.

Work may include the reform of constitutional documents, corporate governance, advising new providers of higher education including advising on obtaining degree awarding powers, commercial projects, joint ventures and education collaboration agreements such as teaching partnerships.

As an Education Solicitor working in this team, you would focus on advising higher education institutions and private sector higher education providers on cutting edge and strategically important work globally. You would also advise other further educational institutions, independent schools and academies.

The successful Education Solicitor will ideally have an understanding of charity law and its applicability to the education sector. Given the niche focus of the work, no specific experience of working in the higher education is required; training and support to develop sector knowledge will be provided.

The successful Education Solicitor will have experience from a mid to top tier commercial practice specialising in either corporate, charity, education or commercial transactional work. Importantly, you must be enthusiastic about developing knowledge of the education sector, be quick at learning and have excellent communication, business development, project management and presentational skills.

To apply for the position of Education Solicitor, please contact Angharad Warren at BCL Legal. Angharad specialises in the placement of lawyers into Birmingham's leading commercial firms.
