Put your legal experience to work for Manchester.

At the heart of everything we do is:
  • The safety and needs of children
  • High-quality representation of Children’s Services.
  • Alongside this is effective teamwork producing incredible, outstanding results.

There is little else in life graver than a parent or carer losing a child from their care. How do we do this emotionally demanding work and not burn out? It’s through teamwork â€" working together, trusting each other, combining our experience, and sharing our knowledge and expertise to get the right result.

We’re not frightened to cry physical tears together, to laugh, interact, problem-solve, have difficult conversations and help each other. This promotes deep learning and a strong sense of belonging and common purpose, creating effective mutual relationships that achieve our team’s goals.

Nationally, we’re seen as a forward-thinking and outstanding legal group and council, always listening carefully to feedback, doing what we say we will â€" when we say we will and continually looking for better ways of doing things and achieving greater heights.

We feed on one another’s contagious enthusiasm for our projects with a dynamic team spirit made possible by the synergism between us all.
  • Are your skills and legal mind being rewarded?
  • Do you work together as part of a supportive team?
  • Is your work wide-ranging and varied?
  • Are you achieving your goals?

We don’t recruit very often, so now’s your chance to join us. Be part of an incredible journey.

Why work with us?

We offer our lawyers flexible start and finish times with an effective remote working-practice model. There’s opportunity for development and variety thanks to the way our teams practice in our Lexcel-accredited and supported legal service.

Legal work for public services in Manchester, Salford and Rochdale Councils and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority puts you among the few practitioners in England’s first, and biggest, devolved region, where major decisions are now taken in-house rather than in Whitehall and by NHS administrations.

If practicing in a supportive public service legal team is the right cultural fit for you, please get in touch for an informal discussion.

For an informal discussion on these roles please contact Jonathan Broad, Head of Children & Families Legal Services on 0161 234 3728 or email jonathan.broad@manchester.gov.uk.
