Warwickshire, West Midlands 

Role:

Qualified Lawyer

Employment Type:

Permanent Full-Time

Posted:

21.06.2022

Employer type:

Local Authority
col-wide   

Job Description:

£44,139 - £50,023 per annum (pro-rata)

Permanent position (Part-time applicants will also be considered)

Warwickshire Legal Services has operated on a business footing for over 25 years and now has over 60 fee earners providing a comprehensive range of services to over 15 public sector clients and 300 schools, including district and county councils and two police forces. We have ambitious plans for further growth and we rarely outsource work, meaning that our lawyers are trusted to lead even the most challenging legal projects for a wide range of public sector bodies.

The Council has recently created property companies to develop over 2,200 homes and extensive commercial properties and also to manage nearly 600 commercial, agricultural and school premises. As a result, we offer unrivalled opportunities to develop highly marketable skills with the support of experienced colleagues who consistently earn very high satisfaction ratings from their clients.

We have a national reputation, recognised in several national awards, as well as modern offices in a historic building in the middle of Warwick within a short distance of other popular towns like Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and Stratford-upon-Avon and in a central location on road and rail transport networks. We offer flexible working arrangements, supported by the latest ICT, and this enables our staff to work predominantly from home if that is their preference.  In return our staff are willing to go the extra mile when our clients need it.

People like to work for us, and we have a tradition of growing our own talent through training and development schemes, meaning that we have a low turnover of staff. As part of our planned expansion, we are recruiting additional lawyers in the Property Team.

We are looking for candidates who are first-rate solicitors and who solve problems, inspire staff and client confidence, understand commercial imperatives, welcome change and challenge, and have the potential to progress within our business.  The role calls for individuals who are versatile, ambitious and keen to learn and improve across a wide range of areas.

You will work alongside other property lawyers (including a paralegal) supporting public sector clients with operational, commercial, educational and agricultural portfolios who undertake sometimes complex and major redevelopment and disposal projects as well as academisations, commercial and agricultural lettings, and other property transactions.  Some projects will provide opportunities to work with colleagues in other teams specialising in corporate, contract, public, social care, education, planning and highway law.  You will be a qualified solicitor or barrister.
