Join an exciting Legal Service 

Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.

The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated employment lawyer, ideally with some experience of education and/or information governance, to join us in Brent’s impressive Civic Centre, located right next to Wembley stadium and just a 12 minute train ride from Baker Street and a 21 minute train ride from Kings Cross.  We offer good flexible working arrangements with high quality arrangements for remote access. So, if you are a skilled employment professional looking for challenging and rewarding work in a demanding but supportive environment - this is the opportunity you have been waiting for.
