Croydon is London’s second largest borough - a city within the city, full of brilliant and diverse people, businesses and places.
As a Council we’re going through tremendous change, from our evolving response to the pandemic, to our plans to radically reshape and renew our organisation as a result of financial challenges. We are essentially building a brand new Council around ourselves – one that is focused on getting things right for its residents, while delivering very differently and within a sustainable financial envelope.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is looking for a new and exciting role. Ideally you will have local government experience, but we also welcome applications from those who come from the private sector. We are looking for a full time Solicitor to join our small and friendly Commercial & Property team and play a key role in the successful delivery of quality legal services to the Council. The successful candidate will be responsible for a varied and intellectually challenging caseload. The ideal candidate will have the expertise to work across disciplines in contracts, procurement, property, planning, projects, and local government law.
You will be a qualified Solicitor, Barrister or Legal Executive, ideally with experience of managing at a senior level. The grade is dependent on level of experience.
