Procurement / Contract Lawyers

  • About the Firm: The South London Legal Partnership, hosted by the London Borough of Merton provides a five-borough shared legal service to Merton, Richmond, Kingston, Sutton and Wandsworth councils.
  • About the role: The SLLP is seeking to recruit three procurement lawyers. We want to recruit people who are committed to improving the customer experience, are highly motivated, and who relish the opportunity of working across the councils we serve.
  • Looking For: We are looking to secure your expertise and good knowledge of relevant legislation to the service area and the decision-making processes and procedures, which complements your good understanding of current issues and best practice on service delivery relevant to the service areas.
  • Opportunities: Among the opportunities afforded to you, will be to provide timely and effective specialist legal advice to elected members, including committees and to Chief Officers, senior managers and officers across both authorities as part of a team of lawyers, and to any other clients of the Shared Legal Service.
  • And more: You will have the ability to both work under pressure and respond efficiently to the changing needs of the clients; and to be able to travel to attend client officers or courts wherever the client’s case is being considered.
