Job Description

We are working in unusual circumstances and we appreciate that this is an unsettling time for all employees and employers, we have always believed in absolute transparency and as such we want to be clear about the status of vacancies. Some of the roles we have been working on have only very recently been placed on hold, whereas some are still live and the client has confirmed that we are to continue with our search. We will therefore indicate the status of each role clearly so that applicants are clear on the position.

This role is LIVE as recently confirmed by our client, interviews will be conducted via video calls.

Due to growth, our highly regarded client are seeking an experienced lawyer with at least 3+ years PQE, to work amongst a well-established Public Law team in Cambridge. The team advise on all types of organisations across the public sector and represent a wide range of clients.

The role will take a focus on the education sector and you will run your own interesting and diverse caseload of education cases and be responsible for supervising junior colleagues’ work. You will play an important role in further developing the team’s established education law practice and will be actively involved in business development.

You will have the confidence to hit the ground-running and have the ability to work independently on litigated cases. Given the nature of the work, you will need to be resilient and calm whilst also putting your often vulnerable client’s needs first at all times.

The successful candidate should have at least 3 years’ experience working as a solicitor in the area of education law and experience of running a range of education cases including SEN tribunals and judicial reviews, legal aid and familiarity with the CCMS case management system.

“Without Errington Legal’s knowledge of the legal market and strong relationships with local firms, I would not have been able to secure the role that I did”. Solicitor

Testimonial

'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.
