Note from Mike Dawson, Chief Executive – Tewkesbury Borough Council
Tewkesbury Borough Council is a council with great ambitions and it has been the proud host of One Legal since 2009. Since that time, we and our partners have grown One Legal in terms of partners and its client base. The One Legal team has grown to serve that growth and now has around 40 employees who work across all four partner councils; Tewkesbury Borough Council, Cheltenham Borough Council, Gloucester City Council and Stroud District Council. It is a great team with a broad range of experience and a shared enthusiasm for excellence.
We are now looking forward to the next exciting stage in One Legal’s growth. The recruitment of an inspiring new leader to build on One Legal’s success is the start of the next chapter in the One Legal story.
Our ideal candidate will be an exceptional lawyer, with sound experience and a thorough understanding of the political and legislative context of local authorities and the wider public sector. The successful candidate will also be a great leader with commercial and business acumen. We are looking for someone who will really push the service forward, lead our great team and set the standard for public sector legal services.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity, working with great partners and a great team in a great part of the world – I look forward to welcoming your application.
“To provide our clients with exceptional, high-quality legal services, whilst inspiring our skilled employees to develop their expertise in a supportive, friendly and progressive environment"
