Legal Services Lincolnshire is a shared legal service across Lincolnshire County Council and six of our seven districts and a trading unit with plans to develop an ABS. Following a reorganisation of our team, we are seeking a Head of Legal Services for a newly created post. Reporting to and deputising for the Chief Legal Officer (statutory Monitoring Officer) you will lead the team, ensuring that we deliver exceptional service and the highest quality advice to customers.

You will be responsible for further developing the efficiency and quality of our operations, fostering a positive “can do” culture with a high level of customer focus and a commercial mindset. You will also be responsible for the development of the team, and ensuring that we continue the excellent work we have already started in growing our own quality lawyers.

You will have exceptional leadership and interpersonal skills, and have a background in local government law, most likely, but not necessarily, gained within another local authority. We welcome applications from candidates currently working at this level, or from those looking to step up.
