Thomson Legal had a broad range of hiring lawyers into public sector bodies- our clients include: local authorities, Universities, charities and central government.
Making the move to the public sector can prove highly rewarding. Many lawyers move to the public sector both to take advantage of enviable work/life balance but often for the chance to make a difference to society and the community.
Many public sector lawyers are presented with the opportunity to work on high-profile projects with a high degree of interaction with stake holders in the organisation. There are many routes into the public sector for lawyers both on a permanent and interim basis and there is often an achievable route to progression with many lawyers spending most of their legal careers working in the public sector.
