If you are thinking that your working life could be so much better with a rewarding and challenging role in an environment that values you, then the South London Legal Partnership (SLLP) could be the place for you.

Providing legal services to the London Boroughs of Merton, Richmond, Sutton, Wandsworth and Royal Borough of Kingston, we are able to offer employment opportunities across all aspects of local government legal work.

We are based in South West London and offer a wide range of flexible working options, including hybrid working and compressed hours. We have competitive salaries and a welcome payment of £3,000. Merton Council offers excellent holiday entitlement along with the opportunity to join the Local Government Pension Scheme.

We are committed to:

  • promoting equality of opportunity and social inclusion
  • eliminating unlawful discrimination
  • promoting good relations between employees and communities of all backgrounds.

We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic applicants, keen to develop their skills in a supportive public sector environment. Please do not be put off if you have not worked in local government before – it is your determination to provide a top-class legal service which will matter most.

We have several roles available due to a recent restructure and a determination to provide the best possible legal service for our residents.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a busy and established Education law team serving 5 Boroughs covering all areas of advice and representation regarding Education Law.  You will be able to demonstrate good knowledge of relevant legislation and have experience of handling Tribunal matters as well as experience of general education advice.
