We are looking for an experienced and energetic practitioner to lead the provision of specialist legal advice to the Office of the Inspectorate.


This is a challenging role; you will come across fascinating issues with outcomes that confirm your reputation, among your peers, as an excellent lawyer.

In this role you'll have the opportunity to use your insight and capability to influence colleagues in a way that reinforces the Department's strategic goals.  You will have the relationships skills to influence internal clients, suppliers, external legal providers and other government agencies.


You will sit primarily in our Inspectorate team and report through to the Chief Inspector, to ensure that appropriate team procedures, precedent systems and quality control processes are developed and maintained.


  So if you are a personable and productive lawyer who:  

  • has significant public law experience and is interested in the Justice sector and can commit to sector goals
  • provides high quality commercial law advice, within agreed timeframes
  • writes and communicates ideas well with highly developed inter-personal skills
  • works efficiently and effectively with high integrity
  • has at least six years post-admission legal experience and holds a practising certificate,
