Bristol, Leeds, London, Newcastle or Southampton
Our Real Estate practice group is currently recruiting for a talented, innovative and commercially focused practice development manager to join their team. Working with over 150 fee earners, across our offices this role is vital to the on-going development of the Real Estate business group, strategy and client service experience at an exciting stage of the firm's growth and development as we move towards with our transatlantic combination with Womble Carlyle.
Our Real Estate Practice Development Lawyer team are expert in delivering both support to our clients and our lawyers – this includes KM awareness, documents and training but also delivery of strategic and commercial insight into legal, market and regulatory developments and trends. This role will help us deliver all this directly and through management of our existing Real Estate knowledge management team, but also much more.
We are looking for a forward thinking individual to help us identify and implement new ways of working, creative service delivery solutions and to help us to embrace the best new technological and innovative solutions to better deliver legal services. Working with partners, our talented project management team and our Innovation community, this role is vital in ensuring we remain competitive, relevant and progressive and has a direct impact on the profitability and future of our business.
To be successful in this role, you will bring a track record in quality real estate work, ideally gained from a city, regional or national firm or a senior in-house position. More importantly you will have a genuine interest in innovation, service delivery, legal technology, and a desire to help us identify and embrace change for the better. You will demonstrate a passion for working collaboratively, and for sharing knowledge and experience in an accessible way. A genuine inquisitiveness about our business (and that of our clients) and the breadth of our real estate offering will allow you to recognise and develop opportunities. You will also need the gravitas and experience to challenge convention and processes, to influence at all levels.
In return, this new role offers the right candidate a unique opportunity to make a real difference both within an already talented and focused business group, but also firmwide where innovation is taken seriously, and is high on our agenda. It's why we have been recently shortlisted for the FT Innovative Lawyer Awards 2017. You will work with a collaborative team of knowledge management professionals across the business and benefit from a clear career structure that rewards and develops you. For the right candidate we would consider flexible working including either or both reduced hours and some home working once established in the role. You could be based out of any of our Bristol, Leeds, London, Newcastle or Southampton offices.
