Reporting to the Deputy Chief Executive, System Leadership, this is an exciting opportunity to lead the Government Legal Network (GLN) team to enhance capability throughout the GLN, including through the delivery of key GLN programmes.

  • well developed communication and stakeholder engagement skills
  • the ability to manage, lead and inspire the GLN team, and across the GLN
  • strong project management and planning skills
  • the ability to operate at a strategic level while not losing sight of the detail.
