What is the role?

This is an important role within our established conveyancing team; the role is primarily to provide in-house conveyancing locum cover for our fee-earners’ holidays and other absences, with a focus on progressing a variety of residential transactions. The role will also involve carrying out fee-earning work as needed by the firm during quieter locum periods and when not providing cover. We are looking for someone that is flexible who will be confident dealing with other fee-earners files, and willing to travel between our offices in Gillingham, Shaftesbury and Warminster as required.

Who you are?
As the ideal candidate, you will have a minimum of 3 years PQE. You will be a competent residential property lawyer with a broad range of residential property experience and will be able to progress a diverse range of files confidently.

You will be a people person who has a positive, team-focused approach and will be used to working with case management systems. You will positively enjoy client contact and keeping everyone updated.

You will also be a team player with strong communication and organisational skills and will be passionate about providing excellent client service. Your approach will be professional and friendly and you also thrive on working in a fast-paced team.

We are also looking to hear from candidates who may wish to bring their management skills to the role, and we would be particularly interested to hear from you if you have experience in file audits and compliance. This is not essential for the role, however.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join an established, award-winning Firm.
