Education Solicitor

An excellent opportunity has arisen for an experienced education solicitor to join the expanding team of this specialist firm in their Leeds office.

the team acts on behalf of a wide range of institutional education clients, mainly state funded secondary schools but also has experience working for schools in the independent sector. They offer the full range of advice for both academies and non-acacdemy status schools and the remit includes governance & leadership, academy conversion, formation & development of multi academy trusts, other types of school re-organisation & structural change, as well as getting involved in a wide range of education practice generally, including pupil admissions matters, behaviour / exclusions, issues around special needs, other equality issues and all aspects of business-as-usual school management. This is a fast-moving and dynamic area of law, so no two days are the same.

The firm is strongly committed to the ongoing support and development of its solicitors, and recognises that candidates are unlikely to have experience across all the areas covered in the education team, so they are very happy to receive applications from lawyers who have experience in some but not all of these areas. Ongoing in-depth training will be provided.

They are looking for lawyers who are happy to embrace change, who are dynamic and committed to this sector and who want to progress their career within it. You will enjoy very close client contact and form and develop lasting relationships with your clients. Some supervision of junior members of the team will also form part of this role and you will need to demonstrate a desire to work collaboratively as part of a tight-knit team.

If you have upwards of three years' experience in education work or related commercial work on behalf of public sector, education or charity clients, we would love to hear from you.

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