We are looking for a qualified lawyer with experience in commercial property transactions including landlord and tenant, and sales and acquisitions, with the ability to draft, negotiate and advise on property matters and transactions relating to the councils’ property portfolios. Experience in development agreements, options, conditional contracts and educational matters, including academy conversions is also desirable.

You will have the necessary skills and experience in giving written and oral advice to officers, members of the Senior Leadership Team and Elected Members; this will include attendance at Authority property boards to update the relevant officers and Members on specific, often high profile property transactions.

If you would like to be part of our Lexcel accredited dynamic, busy and friendly team committed to providing an excellent legal service in these vital areas of work we look forward to hearing from you.
