At Birmingham City Council, we are always looking for people of the highest calibre whose knowledge, skills and experience will help us provide the best possible service. We are working to support a hugely diverse city with a wide range of services in order to make a positive difference every day to people’s lives.

Working within one of the largest legal teams in local government, you will be involved in complex, challenging work at this exciting time in Birmingham City Council’s future.  Join us, and you’ll be in a great place for both professional and personal development in our large, vibrant and evolving city.

As a qualified Solicitor you will be working within the Adult Social Care Team to provide legal services to the City Council departments, its officers and employees. You will be responsible for a full caseload where you will be required to deal with a wide range of adult social care and health issues including assessment and care management, mental capacity and the Court of Protection, mental health, asylum and immigration, adult safeguarding and judicial review.

You will ideally have a minimum 3 years post qualification experience and will have worked within an Adult Social Care legal team or have strong litigation experience. 

A local authority / public sector background would be highly beneficial, but not essential as the right candidate with transferable skills willing to be trained in this area of the law will be considered.
