The ideal candidate will have experience of handling a full caseload of Commercial Contracts and EU Procurement matters. However, a large proportion of the caseload will be construction contracts and therefore expertise in this area is essential.  Previous local government experience would be advantageous.

The Council offers a positive working atmosphere and several interesting projects. The council is offering a hybrid working model.
