We’re looking to add a Conveyancing Assistant / Secretary to our Residential Property Team to be based from our London Office.
Working as a Conveyancing Assistant, you’ll work to support your team to allow them to provide quality legal advice and an exceptional Conveyancing service to our clients.
Using your understanding of the law, you’ll assist fee-earners with managing their caseloads of purchase, sale, remortgage and other associated matters for both freehold and leasehold properties. Given the nature of the role, you’ll need to be hardworking and be able to thrive in a pressurised environment; reacting to changing deadlines and priorities in a professional and pragmatic manner.
You’ll be able to demonstrate an up-to-date legal knowledge and an enthusiasm for continuing your professional development to ensure that you are always able to provide the best services to our clients. You’ll have the confidence to contribute to team meetings and work collaboratively; sharing best practice and learning from your colleagues.
What we'll need from you
Ideally you’ll have conveyancing experience already and may be working towards a relevant legal qualification such as ILEX, CLC or similar. You’ll also need to have demonstrable understanding of case management systems and an awareness of quality procedures. We are looking for the successful candidate to preferably come into the office three days a week.
If you are a great team player with a passion for Residential Property, we would love to hear from you.
