Adur and Worthing Legal Services is a joint legal service providing advice to both Adur District Council and Worthing Borough Council.

We have a brilliant opportunity for a Solicitor, Barrister or Legal Executive to join us as a key member of our Litigation and Regulatory team. The team deals with a wide variety of areas, including planning, licensing, housing, criminal and civil litigation.

This is an exciting and varied role in a supportive and friendly team.

We are looking for a positive, driven and innovative professional with excellent analytical and research skills, who is a good team player, self-motivated and has the ability to give clear, accurate and practical legal advice.

As an employer we are committed to developing a positive workplace culture that promotes equality, diversity and inclusion that reflects the community we serve; and where everyone can reach their full potential and feel valued.

To ensure we attract and retain our people there are some great benefits to working here, including generous leave entitlements, an excellent pension, flexible working arrangements and well-being support.

For an informal discussion, please telephone Caroline Perry, Senior Lawyer and Deputy Monitoring Officer, on 01903 221081.

Staff are our most important asset and we therefore have a benefit package which reflects our continuing commitment to our employees. This includes:

Generous leave entitlement; a minimum of 25 days + Bank Holiday entitlement

Local Government Pension

Training & development

Occupational Health

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

Flexible working options

We are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community - a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. Staff work in a supportive and safe environment, recognising their responsibility to value and respect each other’s contributions. Standards of conduct must be of the highest level to ensure that no-one is harassed, bullied or victimised. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, staff engagement forums and are keen to hear from applicants from a variety of different backgrounds.
