Are you an experienced transactional property solicitor looking for a new challenge, which includes developing and leading a team at a company that has a worthwhile mission?

We have a great opportunity with a really respected client whose focus is to enhance lives and communities. They are looking for an enthusiastic Head of Legal to lead a busy team of five within the property division of the legal team. The role comes with a broad range of responsibility and will see you supervise the day to day activities of the team, which mainly consists of freehold and leasehold conveyancing transactions. You will also have the confidence to tackle various contractual law issues that arise on an ad hoc basis.

Ideally, you will be at least 7 years PQE, with solid experience in residential and commercial conveyancing. It would be helpful if you had experience in providing advice to housing associations or other public sector bodies, however it is not a prerequisite. You will enjoy mentoring more junior colleagues and will have a positive and proactive approach to your work.

This is a brilliant opportunity to play your part in moulding and developing a team within a business where the legal team is really valued and well regarded. If you'd like to hear more, please do get in touch.

Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
