The first job being advertised is a £53,196 position as lawyer at HM Revenue & Customs, ranked as grade Seven in the Civil Service hierarchy.
Only fellows of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) can apply, and, if they lack a qualifying law degree or graduate diploma in law, they must have achieved specific targets in their CILEx exams.
They must have scored 50% or above in all seven foundation subjects in law – contract, criminal, equity and trusts, European Union, land, public and the law of tort.
Solicitors, barristers and CILEx fellows are expected to have two years’ post-qualification experience to receive the full salary for the role, but those with less could be appointed as a ‘legal officer’ on just under £38,000.
The successful candidate would be working alongside 200 lawyers at the HMRC, advising on legal issues and conducting litigation.
