Our client is a forward thinking, highly respected international law firm and is looking for a Planning Solicitor to join its busy Leeds office.

Your caseload will include dealing with a whole range of planning matters from transactional planning agreements through to contentious work. Specifically, you will be preparing appeal documentation, carrying out corporate support work, providing legal opinions, preparing legal challenges and defences and other such matters. The team are really busy and are looking for someone who is able to come in and give support to the associates in the team.

Working within a nationally recognised team, you will be getting stuck into a high quality and varied caseload consisting of both contentious and non-contentious matters across a real broad range of sectors such as energy, infrastructure, natural resources, housing and regeneration. As well as the above, our client is looking for someone who is commercially aware and is willing to undertake business development and push the department forward. The team are incredibly friendly and there is real scope to drive your career forward. Strong project management and client skills are essential as this is not a 'back room' role.

Candidates who have between NQ and 2 years PQE are likely to have the right level of knowledge / experience to undertake the role, however, this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant knowledge/experience. Previous experience of dealing with planning, highways and CPO work would be beneficial and certainly not essential for the role. The firm is really open and are happy to consider candidates from other backgrounds including real estate/and or litigation.
