Vacancy details

The Government Legal Department (GLD) is the largest provider of legal services across government, working with all the main Whitehall departments. From roads to rivers, and health to human rights, our work touches on most aspects of public life.

The department has more than 14 client-facing advisory teams who provide legal advice on the development, design and implementation of government policies and decisions, draft secondary legislation and work with Parliamentary Counsel on primary legislation. Our cross-cutting expert service groups for Litigation, Employment and Commercial Law provide specialist legal services to a wide range of government departments and public bodies.

We are a non-ministerial government department with more than 2,500 employees, around 1,800 of whom are solicitors or barristers. The department is based primarily in London but has teams in Bristol, Manchester, and Leeds.

GLD’s Employment Group provides employment litigation and advisory services to central government departments.

We are recruiting lawyers to work in the Employment Group (Team E4) based in London for transactional work in the Group’s TUPE and Transactional Hub (TTH).

The TTH works on the employment aspects of government contracts, in particular those involving insourcing, re-procurement or outsourcing, which includes advising on staffing options, drafting relevant aspects of tender and contractual documents and supporting clients throughout the process of staff transfers. The TTH works very closely with GLD’s Commercial Law Group.

Whilst TUPE transactional work will be the focus of your practice there will be opportunity to take on a broader range of employment advice and litigation or in due course to move to a different area of work altogether within GLD.

GLD is also recruiting TUPE Lawyers based in Leeds.


For further information about the post and application enquiries, please contact the Recruitment Team or telephone 0845 3000 793 or 0117 923 4417.
