The successful applicant will have the ability to assimilate information quickly, carry out legal research and present a point of view clearly, convincingly and persuasively through rational argument to legal advisers and the Law Officers.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills are essential, as is the ability to work collaboratively with other members of the Civil Division.
