About Us

This role is within One Legal. One Legal was launched in November 2009 and staff are employed by Tewkesbury Borough Council but One Legal is a shared legal service between Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Councils with Gloucester City and most recently Stroud District joining us in 2020. One Legal enjoys a greater pool of expertise and an improved skills base than could be retained individually by the four partners. This enables One Legal to successfully support the varied and complex legal work arising from the Councils’ challenging business agendas.

We offer:

  • Up to 30 days annual leave
  • Agile working arrangements
  • Convenient office location close to the M5 with free parking
  • Opportunity to join the Local Government Pension Scheme
