This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented individual looking to progress their career, to join our growing Commercial Property Team. The role will be based in the London office however may require occasional travel to any of our other locations or off site as client demands require.
This post involves work across the whole spectrum of commercial property but with a particular emphasis on supporting the firm's nationally top rated education practice, as well as general commercial property and property finance work. The scope of the work is very broad and ranges from academy conversions to leases (landlord and tenant), site acquisitions and disposals. The department also deals with charity property work and the candidate would be expected to assist with those aspects where necessary. There is also a significant business development and client relationship management aspect to the position as the Leeds office expands.
The successful candidate will have trained within a well-regarded City or regional practice and ideally will have some previous experience of education work. Guidance and direction is available from more senior members of the Team on more complex matters. It is encouraged that employees take ownership and responsibility for work, at increasing levels of significance in order to progress their position over time within the Team and the Firm.
Our environment is positive and supportive but often highly pressurised due to external deadlines and volume of work. We need someone that is pro-active and able to manage potential pressure.
We are committed to recruiting talented individuals and providing our clients with outstanding legal service and so excellent academics along with sound previous experience are a must have.
The candidate should be well-organised, technologically proficient and capable of working on their own or within a team. They will also be required where necessary to provide supervision to more junior members of the team.
We operate within an environment of mutual trust and respects and so the ability to contribute to a pleasant working environment for all concerned, will be important.
The post-holder will report on a day-to-day basis to the London Commercial Property Partners, and overall to the Head of Commercial Property.
Working hours – 9.00am - 5.30pm.
