Residential Conveyancing Solicitor

  • £45000 - £55000 per annum
  • West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

A successful Yorkshire firm has an opening for a residential conveyancing solicitor to join the team in one of their West Yorkshire offices. As one of the major players on the Yorkshire market, the firm can offer high-quality work, a down-to-earth environment and a great benefits package.

The Role
The firm's residential conveyancing department is going from strength to strength and as part of this successful team you will be involved in assisting supervising the residential conveyancing department and be responsible for the expansion of the team and the development of the office. This is an important role because in addition to assisting with running the department, you will also operate as a fee earner in your own right. You will be handling a broad spectrum of work, including sale and purchase of freehold and leasehold properties, re-mortgages, panel work and more complex transactions such as shared ownerships and share equity sales and purchases. As for the supervisory/management duties, these will include streamlining systems and processes, training fee earners, developing new work and generally assisting the head of department on other similar duties.

This is a multi-office firm and there is a certain degree of flexibility as to which office this role can be based in.

The Ideal Candidate

  • Experienced Solicitor with at least 8 years experience in residential conveyancing. This experience does not all have to have been acquired in the capacity of a solicitor.
  • Experience as a team leader or supervisor is essential
  • Experience of developing and generating your own work, with ideally a following of work to bring with you, but this is not essential
  • Excellent communicator
  • Exceptional organisation and time management skills
