One of our highly regarded London Borough clients is seeking a Childcare Advocate to join their in house legal team for an initial 3 month assignment.

The ideal candidate will have experience conducting advocacy on child care cases at various different hearings including contested final hearings lasting up to 10 days. You will be responsible for providing advice and case work on matters to include advice at planning/strategy meetings, issuing applications, liaising with client and all parties and instructing experts.
