Carlisle City Councils dedicated in-house legal team provides high quality legal and procedural advice to Council officers, Members and Committees at all stages of the Councils decision making processes, to ensure a strong governance culture which meets the highest standards of ethical and corporate governance. The team is Lexcel accredited.

We have a vacancy within the team for an Assistant Solicitor to provide legal advice across a broad range of Council functions, undertaking the conduct of criminal proceedings, civil litigation and statutory appeal processes and advising on all matters relevant to enforcement and delivery of Council priorities.

You will be a fully qualified Lawyer (Solicitor, Barrister or Legal Executive with rights of audience in the Magistrates Court) with solid experience in contentious work.

You will have a track record of influencing and persuading people at all levels and the ability to build strong relationships.
