Looking for a change of direction?

 

We have an exciting opportunity to join a busy legal team working on Child Protection matters.

 

Whilst experience is welcomed, it is not essential, as training will be given.

 

Enthusiasm to learn and to achieve the best outcomes for the most vulnerable children in our area is critical.

 

Again, although advocacy experience is helpful, an enthusiasm to develop these skills is more important.

 

The ability to work as part of a team is essential, as is the ability, where necessary, to work under your own initiative.

 

In return, the successful candidate will be provided with a supportive team, where development and training are a priority.

 

Please note that if an employee who is currently at risk of redundancy within the organisation applies for this vacancy their application will receive priority.  If this happens you will be advised accordingly.
