Our UK Real Estate team has a key role to play in delivering on our sector strategy. That's why we now have more than two hundred lawyers across our nationally respected teams, with over sixteen listed as leaders in their field.  Technical excellence is no longer enough, so we've worked hard to ensure that we combine that with a genuine understanding of our clients and their businesses which allows us to add real commercial value.  Our lawyers work across specialist teams, drawing on their strengths to deliver commercial solutions for our clients.  Our Residential team now has an exciting opportunity for a Paralegal to join the team in Newcastle.

The team act for a number of national house-builder and social housing clients, specialising in the sale and purchase of residential properties across the UK.  However, this role will see you working, predominately, with national house-builder clients. 

What will you be doing?

In this varied role you'll be dealing with all aspects of the plot sales process including issuing contract packs, responding to enquiries, reporting to and updating clients and attending to exchanges and completions.  And that's not all; you'll also be assisting with all aspects of the part exchange purchase and sale of part exchange properties process (excluding title checks), ordering pre-contract searches, reporting to and updating clients, post exchange steps and post completion formalities plus processing Land Registry applications and SDLT submissions.

So what does the ideal candidate look like?

You'll bring exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal, strong drafting skills and be able to work to tight deadlines whilst under pressure with a natural ability to build strong relationships, both internally and externally.

You'll have some previous residential property experience ideally in new-build or plot sales, though this is not essential.  What is essential is an enthusiasm and interest in this area of law and preference will be given to applicants able to demonstrate their passion for developing within this sector.  That said, consideration will also be given to anyone with a good knowledge of conveyancing generally working in this sector in an administrative or similar function looking to progress into a Paralegal role.

Who are we?

A Top 100 law firm globally and Top 20 law firm in the UK, Womble Bond Dickinson has more than 400 partners and 1,000 lawyers based across 18 US cities and eight UK cities including a significant presence in London. The firm's reach also extends to Europe where it has strategic partnerships with other law firms in Germany and France.

In the UK, Womble Bond Dickinson advises in excess of 40 FTSE 350 companies, many of the largest businesses in the country, government organisations and wealthy individuals. With a focus on eleven key sectors (Energy & Natural Resources; Financial Institutions; Healthcare;  Insurance, Manufacturing;  Real Estate; Retail and Consumer; Transport, Logistics & Infrastructure; Life Sciences & Pharmaceuticals; Technology and Private Wealth) the firm’s experience allows it to build strong relationships and deliver an excellent service to clients.

What makes it great to work here?

We continually work hard to create an open culture that sets us apart from other firms. Our culture gives us much more of a human feel, emphasising that we're more than just suits!  We like and make time for each other enabling us to establish professional relationships that become lasting friendships.  In addition, through our D&I practices and programmes we work hard to ensure that difference is visibly valued and welcomed. 

And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.
