Temporary Legal Assistant (Litigation) - West Lancashire Borough Council

Closing date



Scale 6; £23,398 – £24,964 per annum

Job description

Fixed term until 31 March 2019

Hours - 36 per week (Flexi Scheme in Operation)

West Lancashire has a diverse economy with market towns, small villages and thriving commercial areas nestled alongside rural countryside.

The Borough offers a wide contrast between open farmland and small picturesque villages together with the larger vibrant market towns of Burscough and Ormskirk.

Our largest town Skelmersdale is a hive of urban activity, combining thriving business districts, central and local shopping centres with plenty of green spaces and surrounding woodlands.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a lawyer with experience of a busy legal office and with a real passion and flair for advocacy within the Courts to join our small but forward-thinking and innovative Legal and Member Services team. A sound knowledge of civil or criminal litigation and court procedures is therefore essential for this role.

Working closely with experienced lawyers you will also provide advice and support across a range of legal matters for our client services with particular emphasis upon housing, planning, civil and criminal litigation and information governance matters. The post provides an excellent opportunity for career development.

You will be a good team player with excellent verbal and written communication skills and ideally hold a Law Degree or Common Professional Examination (Graduate Diploma in Law) qualification.
