THE FIRM
This firm with three offices has its head office in the lively cathedral city of Canterbury. The firm specialises in property law and has a particularly strong presence in the area of affordable housing and new build conveyancing but also receives instructions across all areas of real estate and property-related matters. A vacancy has now arisen for a solicitor with very solid experience in all aspects of property work to join the firm.  

THE ROLE
This role has arisen as a result of a succession planning exercise which sees one partner move into a consultancy role and a Head of Department vacancy opening up in the near future.   As a result, it is envisaged that the successful candidate will start with the residential conveyancing work, with a careful transition into the partner-level commercial work and into the Head of Department role within a relatively short space of time.  As well, the firm is keen to encourage growth within the department, and to that end is expanding the conveyancing team to eventually comprise nine or ten members of staff.  The successful candidate therefore will be required to take on some elements of marketing and networking as well as demonstrating excellent leadership skills.   This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and proactive solicitor to join a great firm with big plans for the future. When applying for this property solicitor vacancy, please quote reference SS23888.

THE CANDIDATE

You will:-
Be a 5+ years’ PQE solicitor with good experience in property matters;
Possess excellent communication skills, with colleagues and clients alike;
Be comfortable dealing with clients from all walks of life, including high-net-worth individuals;
Have demonstrable leadership skills;
Be ambitious, and enjoy networking and all aspects of business development.
