Delivery Lead - Corporate
There’s more to law than corporates.
Join our award-winning legal service and grow through diverse clients, challenging projects and excellent training opportunities.
At Warwickshire Legal Services, we run a very different kind of in-house legal team.
We have the freedom to practise as our own firm within Warwickshire County Council, generating our own income from internal teams and a diverse pool of public sector clients.
Few councils operate this way, and our approach gives you a unique environment to grow your career. You’ll join an award-winning group of innovative legal professionals and take on a real variety of cases, from property and education to children’s safeguarding and adult social care.
On top of this, you can take advantage of the benefits that come with a non-corporate practice. You’ll see cases through to completion and get more hands-on experience while getting a better work-life balance and greater flexibility.
We’re also dedicated to supporting your development through a wide range of training opportunities, and you’ll be able to learn from a 120-strong team with a true breadth of legal experience.
In short, we are an ambitious, nationally recognised team that wants to deliver consistently outstanding legal work. If you feel the same, we welcome you to join us.
About the Role
We are seeking an experienced senior legal practitioner with a track record of managing high performing teams in a complex and busy environment. You will play an active role as part of our service team working in partnership with colleagues to innovate our service delivery capabilities and support the Council’s ambition to make Warwickshire the best it can be.
You will support the Service Manager and other Delivery Team Leaders in achieving our organisational vision and outcomes and develop and maintain good working relationships with our range of key stakeholders including statutory partners, service providers, voluntary section and customers.
As Corporate Delivery Lead you will have responsibility for leading the teams delivering for the Council in the areas of employment, governance and claims.
Covid has brought significant changes to the way that we and our clients work and as a fully traded service it is important that we continue to develop and adapt. You will be an integral member of the Legal Services Management Team and a driving force in our continued growth and development. You will be expected to advise on and support others in all aspects of public sector law and procedure across a number of diverse clients, and to provide guidance at elected member level. Prior experience of working in a local government environment is required. Experience of advising in committees and of working with Elected Members will be an advantage.
