Our housing association clients find themselves in a rapidly changing world. Alongside offering traditional tenures such as affordable rent and shared ownership sales, many are diversifying into open market sales and rental markets, competing with traditional house builders in a highly commercial environment. Many are large corporate organisations dealing with highly structured development projects with sophisticated funding arrangements that challenge us to bring new and innovative ways of thinking to the legal challenges they face.
We are looking for property lawyers, to grow and strengthen our highly-regarded team and assist in serving our clients in innovative ways. We are seeking a qualified solicitor, we suggest 2-4 PQE, who can bring some commercial residential experience to the sector. You will be working on multi million pound transactions, buying and selling land and social housing by way of various different structures such as turnkey, golden brick and “self-build” schemes including joint venture developments. There will be a variety of work with significant responsibility.
We require someone who can influence through a commercial and pragmatic approach, and who can build and maintain strong relationships as a result of the high level of client contact required in the role. There will be the opportunity to build and expand your role within the supportive team over time.
With a residential or development background, you will have enthusiasm for housing sector work and a willingness to understand the world from the client perspective.
