Bolsover District Council is a dynamic and ambitious organisation that takes pride in delivering excellent services to our community whilst driving economic growth and environmental sustainability for the district.

Bolsover District Council’s Legal team is a small but essential part of the authority and you will play an important role providing services to clients across the Council.

We are recruiting a Solicitor/Legal Executive/Barrister from either the public sector or those looking to move into local government from another sector.

To be successful you will need to:


  • Be an experienced, qualified lawyer
  • Be organised, efficient and motivated – able to work under pressure whilst still maintaining a high level of service delivery
  • Be a team player with a pro-active can-do approach
