The post will be maternity cover for an existing member of the section. Legal Services are looking to appoint a qualified Property Solicitor to deal with a diverse and demanding caseload relating to commercial, residential and industrial property, landlord/tenant, and other commercial property matters. The post involves taking the lead on complex conveyancing and other commercial transactions with particular emphasis on commercial redevelopment and leasing. The post holder will be required to provide advice in relation to major and complex project work, as well as routine conveyancing transactions, and therefore knowledge of procurement and contract law either in a public or private sector environment is likely to be useful.
You must have proven legal experience as well as the ability to work with senior managers and partner organisations, ideally involving commercial property work in a local government environment. We need someone who is skilled and enthusiastic and with a strong sense of probity. Good IT skills and the ability to manage and prioritise large workloads and turn around work in short timescales are necessary.
