Solicitor (Full Time/Part Time)

Do you want to make a real change to people’s lives?

Do you want a better work/life balance?

Scottish Borders Council is looking for a solicitor to join the People and Court Team in our Legal Team. The team places a strong emphasis on work/life balance and offers flexible working on a hybrid working model. The work is varied, and a high level of responsibility will be given, together with appropriate team support and training.

This is a full-time post, and we would be happy to consider full time, part time and job sharing applications. Applications would also be welcome from those nearing the end of their traineeship. The post involves working closely with colleagues in our Social Work and Education Teams. This would be an excellent opportunity for those that want to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children and adults, while developing expertise within these areas of law and experience in Sheriff Court and Tribunal settings.

Successful candidates will also gain membership to the Local Government Pension Scheme.
