The Role

Are you an experienced legal professional with good people management skills? If so, you could be the perfect candidate to become our new Legal and Democratic Services Operations Manager.

Legal and Democratic services plays a critical role, central to all that we do. You will lead and manage a team of lawyers and committee clerks as well as the Mayor’s office, information governance and land charges teams. You will make sure everything we do is supported by sound legal advice and good decision making.

If successful, you will work as part of our Senior Management Group and will have the opportunity to deputise for the Monitoring Officer. In return, we offer plenty of personal and professional development opportunities. This is a great opportunity to join a forward-thinking council with exciting regeneration plans and an ambitious vision for the future.

This role could suit somebody looking to take a step up to senior management or somebody keen to make their mark in a larger organisation.

What you will have is strong people management skills, extensive experience in one or more areas of the law and a good understanding of local government. You should have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to take our Legal and Democratic Services function to the next level in service delivery.

Does this sound like you? If so, we look forward to reading your application.
