Exciting opportunity for a Lawyer to work within a dynamic and specialist Child Protection Team

Invicta Law’s Child Protection Team prides itself on offering expert legal advice and support to local authority clients in all areas of child protection law. We have an exciting opportunity for Child Protection Lawyers to join our team of experienced professionals. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with initiative, a proactive approach to problem-solving and a real commitment to the job.

This role can be fully remote as we have the ability for the right candidate to live and work anywhere in the UK with some flexibility in working hours.  We value equality and diversity in our friendly and welcoming team within which expert administrative support is on offer to allow you to focus on a varying and engaging caseload.  There is also an expert IT support team available to offer remote technical support.
