Job Description

Planning Solicitor, 3+ years PQE with Competitive Salary + Benefits

Our client specialises in planning law and needs an experienced disputes-oriented Solicitor or Barrister for an expanding caseload.

Whilst they are based in the East, they work nationally to further the protection of the environment. They have a range of public and private law cases covering a wide variety of mainly environmental and planning issues, dealt with in judicial review, planning hearings and inquiries, and other courts. Many cases progress to the Court of Appeal and beyond.

The ideal candidate will have at least 3+ years PQE/call, preferably with court and inquiry experience, as you will be working mainly on the public and planning law side of the practice. Experience of regulatory law, including criminal advocacy experience, and an interest in specialising in environmental law is essential. The role would also be suitable for a barrister looking for a different work/life balance and the stability that working within a firm of specialist planning and environmental solicitors offers. Higher rights of audience and court experience is desirable but not essential, as candidates with a significant planning law background will be considered.

Our client are keen to hear fron candidates both locally based and from further afield, with flexible working available for this role.

Interviews will be conducted via video calls.

'I worked with Ellie on several roles in Cambridge in 2016. These were excellent opportunities which I could not have located otherwise. Ellie prepared me extremely well for interview and clearly understood the firms and their requirements well. She really got to know me, understood my priorities and used this knowledge to help me demonstrate how my experience and interests matched the needs of these employers. Ellie was also strategically and tactically very astute. Her work secured me several interviews and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other candidates in future.'
