National coverage in this ever-changing sector
Our very experienced and dedicated public sector team provide an efficient and cost effective supply of legal staff to organisations right across the UK. Their many years of experience and in-depth knowledge of the market and the recruitment frameworks means we understand the needs and expectations of both the candidates and clients alike.
Our market spans local government, universities, constabularies, housing associations, charities, the NHS, and central government departments.
Most of the assignments we are instructed on are interim/locum roles and are very varied: roles span from one week to on-going contracts that can last for years. The work ranges from commercial contracts & procurement, to property, planning, projects, litigation of all types, including civil and housing, employment, childcare and social care, regulatory, fraud, and prosecutions.
Making the move to the public sector can prove highly rewarding. Our candidates move to this sector to take advantage of the fantastic work/life balance and flexible working patterns, but they stay for the chance to make a difference in their community. Additionally, public sector lawyers regularly work on high profile projects and cases and consistently enjoy greater access to their clients than they are afforded in private practice.
Experienced public sector lawyers tend to find work more quickly, as locum/interim assignments need a good level of PQE; however, there are lots of routes into the sector and candidates wanting additional information should contact us for a consultation.
