Key responsibilities will include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Providing legal advice in relation to various property portfolio projects across the organisation, ensuring they are geared to deliver an acceptable return/outcome.
  • Issue and termination of commercial leases; relaying relevant advice and support to the instructing officers.
  • Identifying knowledge gaps and training colleagues across all property related departments, with the aim of making them “self-sufficient”.
  • Lodging and defending adverse possession claims.
  • Identifying and advising the organisation on enfranchisement opportunities.
  • This is a challenging role suited to a lawyer (solicitor or legal executive) with 5-8 years PQE, who possess extensive knowledge and experience of advising on and transacting property law matters. Given the amount of stock this organisation owns, the successful candidate can expect a fast-paced working environment and should be capable of managing a varied high case load.

As well as a competitive salary and generous leave entitlement, you’ll benefit from their CIPD award winning reward initiative, including a range of voluntary and salary sacrifice benefits, generous pension arrangements and the opportunity to develop your skills.
