2 Residential Property Team Vacancies – Full or Part Time
Are you looking for the opportunity to work with an exciting and progressive firm which continues to grow? We are looking for 2 enthusiastic and motivated lawyers to join our increasingly busy CQS accredited residential property team.
One of the positions will be based in Salisbury office, and the other in a new office we are opening shortly in a town south of Salisbury.
Head of the residential property team post available
While running the residential property team is not a requisite for either job, if either of the successor candidates does want to head up our rapidly growing residential property team, we are more than happy to discuss that with you.
With regard to heading up the team, previous management experience, while useful, is not essential.
The job is suitable for an experienced residential property lawyer this with a minimum of 3 years PQE or equivalent.
The successful candidate
The right candidate will have
- At least 3 years’ experience of residential conveyancing work
- A thorough understanding of the law and practice surrounding conveyancing
- The ability to supervise paralegals
- The confidence and the ability to react to change whilst working within a pressurised environment
- The ability to be an enthusiastic team player, with great people skills
- Good organisational, time management and IT skills
- The ability to multi-task under pressure
- A keen eye for detail
- Excellent standards of client care and great communication skills
- A history of strong billing
- A desire and the ability to help in the growth of the residential property department
Our conveyancing is good quality work– in particular, we don’t buy in cheap residential conveyancing. Clients come to us because we are good at what we do – and they know we care about them
The growing team?
The residential property team is currently 7 strong, but following the completion of certain ongoing projects, the team is expected to increase to around 13 people by the New Year.
Useful, but not essential, attributes
- Experience of using a case management system for property work
- Regular experience of shared ownership conveyancing
- The ability to bring referral sources with you
Full-time or part-time?
The jobs are available on either a full-time or part-time basis.
We offer flexible working if required – many of our lawyers routinely work from home, for example. We are more concerned with output than input – what we are really looking for is quality work, highly satisfied clients and great billing.
Market rate – dependent on the successful candidate’s qualifications and experience
