Eastleigh Borough Council is an ambitious, pro-active and progressive council. We are recognised for our innovation and achievements, whilst delivering high quality service to our customers and the community.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Trainee Solicitor to join the Council’s Legal Services Team at Eastleigh House.
We are seeking a Trainee Solicitor who is self-motivated and confident. The ideal candidate will have an ability to think creatively under pressure, excellent written and interpersonal skills, and a 2:1 (or higher) in a law degree and have passed or be undertaking the LPC course.
With the support and guidance of other colleagues in the Legal team and elsewhere in the Council, you will have the opportunity to develop your skills in many specialities, including planning, contract and procurement, commercial property, licensing, civil and criminal litigation. In addition, you will advise at committees and conduct advocacy in Magistrates and County Courts, as appropriate.
We believe that we can provide you with exposure to the sort of legal case work that you may not get elsewhere, together with the opportunity to build on your existing legal experience in an innovative and creative Council.
If you are excited by this opportunity and feel you have the skills, experience and attitude we are looking for we would love to hear from you. At Eastleigh, we are committed to supporting and developing all our staff and creating a culture that is inclusive, innovative and enjoyable. We offer a good range of benefits and facilities and support our staff in maintaining a good work life balance through our innovative flexi time system.
