In-House Property Solicitors - Property Development

Location: Manchester
Experience: 2-4 Years, 5-7 Years, 8 Years +
Specialism: Real Estate, Residential Conveyancing
Date Posted: September 07, 2021
Job ID: 2530
Employment Type: Permanent
A Cheshire based property development company with a solid in-house legal function (circa 8 lawyers) is seeking a junior-mid level solicitor as well as a senior solicitor for two new roles in the team. 

The team would like to bring in excellent technical commercial conveyancers - who are good at investigating title and leases, and with solid commercial property experience. The company tends to sell to house-builders, so somebody with experience of the intricacies of this would be welcomed. 

The team has some long-servers in it - it is a good flexible place to work, and it suits some individuals down to the ground. Full time and part time solicitors will be considered, and the expectation will be at least 2 days in the office every week. Longer hours from time to time will mean accruing time in lieu - the lawyers in the team can end up working 9 days in a fortnight, which is a rare benefit outside of public sector teams.  

Salary is competitive for an in-house role offering flexibility and a decent culture, and £60,000 to £80,000 are likely to be the rough boundaries for this. Other benefits include comprehensive health insurance, a reasonable pension, and sometimes a Christmas bonus. 

You will definitely need a commercial head to work here - you will be dealing directly with senior (and sometimes demanding) stakeholders in the business. The objective of the in-house legal team here is to make things happen more quickly, and to be straightforward in your approach/advice to your internal client. 

For further information on this interesting opportunity to move in-house as a property solicitor in a supportive and long-serving team, please contact Adam Zdravkovic at Think Legal.
