We set out to truly understand our clients’ needs and help realise their ambitions.

We believe that through this approach and a combination of technical excellence and high quality service we can develop long-lasting partnerships and become our clients' solicitor of choice.

The department

Our Team has considerable experience in advising on the site assembly and subsequent disposal of plots, dealing with high volume work for House builders and Housing Associations.

Purpose of job

Playing an important part in this New Build team you will be responsible for:

* Assisting with infrastructure agreements and all aspects of legal work associated with new build properties and developments

* Assisting the Team in the preparation of site set up paperwork for use in connection with the sale of a plot

* As required, assisting with plot files from instruction to completion within a team environment

* Dealing with enquiries received from solicitors both in connection with the plot disposals and also in connection with post completion enquiries if required

* Assisting with the acquisition and resale of properties under any part exchange scheme run by the development client

* Using a Case Management System to produce correspondence and documentation

* Assisting in keeping records of all management company documentation and liaising with Corporate team regarding the same and, if necessary, dealing with managing agents

* Assisting the Team in dealing with shared ownership sales for Registered Provider clients

Accountabilities

The candidate

The ideal candidate will be a qualified or non-qualified person with 3-5 years’ experience in all aspects of New Build (other than acquisition). Knowledge of shared equity and private market sales will be a bonus but not essential. You will have the ability to hit the ground running with a busy caseload, and to work independently with little supervision and be familiar with case management systems. The ability to work as part of a busy team is essential

All candidates will need excellent time management, organisational, communication and IT skills. The ability to work under pressure to deadlines is also essential.

The transactional nature of the role is such that there will be occasions where the successful applicant will need to be flexible and may have to work extra hours in order to manage the requirements of individual clients.

Equal opportunities

We are committed to recruiting individuals on merits of suitability for each role, on the basis of qualifications and experience. All applications are treated fairly and equally regardless of sexual orientation, race, disability, religious beliefs and any other protected characteristic, ensuring that there are equal opportunities at all stages of the recruitment process.
