As a Lawyer working in the inhouse legal team you will be responsible for delivering advice to the Adult Social Care (ASC) and or Hospitals and Primary Medical Services Operation Teams, as well as the opportunity to work across a range of stakeholders across the organisation.  The work is interesting and often high profile.  You’ll be required to work closely with our award-winning in-house Litigation Inquests and Prosecution Team and to work with the Lawyers and colleagues across all the teams in GLS.

As a Lawyer, you’ll provide legal advice to our Operations Group on a variety of civil enforcement matters, including urgent applications for cancellation or suspension. You will also be required to provide policy and regulatory advice. The role requires flexibility to support wider Legal Services team activity.
