Job Description:

£39,638 - £46,028 per annum

We are looking for a qualified Solicitor or Legal Executive with a good knowledge of property law together with an innovative, commercial approach to ensuring the delivery of a high quality legal service. Candidates must be able to work as part of a team and be flexible, enthusiastic and committed.

Cheshire East is an amazing place to live and work. As one of the largest employers in the borough, we are able to offer you a wide range of challenging and rewarding career opportunities.

At Cheshire East Council we are working for a brighter future – together and our commitment to you is that our workplace culture will provide a shared purpose, a well-led organisation with valued people succeeding together as one team and one council to deliver the best service for our customers and communities. 

If you want to be part of our award-winning council and contribute to our ongoing success, have the flexibility and drive to enable us to innovate, are committed to working as part of a team and striving to deliver exceptional service wherever you can, we would especially like to hear from you.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from all backgrounds and want our workforce to reflect the diversity of our local communities so that we can all work for a brighter future - together.

We are looking for an experienced and committed Lawyer to deal with a range of matters including:

  • Redevelopment/regeneration projects
  • CPOs
  • Asset disposal programmes
  • Infrastructure
  • Landlord & Tenant
  • Housing

The successful Candidate will be working as part of the Commercial Projects and Property Team which is a busy and supportive team. The Council is currently involved in a large number of high profile projects including infrastructure (link roads), major town centre and economic regeneration and HS2 and the role is a challenging and dynamic one. 

Candidates will report directly to the Senior Commercial Property Lawyer and supervise colleagues in the Legal Service as appropriate. They must have the ability and willingness to expand their legal skills and to apply themselves to novel areas of the team’s work that may not be currently within their own expertise.

Candidates will have excellent communication skills, be able to work under pressure and to prioritise their workload to meet tight deadlines. They will have the ability to work collaboratively with project teams and client departments to ensure good client relations. They will be skilled at drafting legal documentation, providing concise and clear advice, negotiating and carrying out legal research and analysis. They will provide training to clients and stakeholders as required.

Experience gained in a Local Authority setting would assist as a sound understanding of local government and administrative law, and an appreciation of the challenges facing local authorities is key to the role.

If you require further information about applying for this post, please contact Julie Gregory, Legal Team Manager on 01270-685842 or Stephanie Parkinson Commercial Property Team Manager on 01270-685815.

Closing Date: 17 July 2020
