Solicitor NQ or Paralegal, Commercial Property – Milton Keynes/Luton
Location: Milton Keynes/Luton (split location)
Salary: Competitive and Dependent upon experience
Are you a newly qualified Commercial Property Solicitor looking for the chance to establish your career in a successful firm? Or are you a junior solicitor looking to handle a high-quality caseload but don’t want the long hours? If so, this Commercial Property role split between our Milton Keynes and Luton offices could be the one for you!
The Candidate & Role:
The successful candidate will be between NQ level and 2 years PQE, however more important than an exact PQE level is technical ability and an enthusiasm to succeed in an established legal practice. You will be handling a high quality caseload from inception to completion, consisting of a broad range of commercial property matters, including some development and property finance work. We are therefore happy to consider individuals who fall outside of this bracket, yet can demonstrate corporate ability and dedication to the role.
We will consider a Property Paralegal for this role with good technical knowledge and experience in all Property matters. Particular experience in fully understanding the Conveyancing process and transactional related matters will benefit the successful candidate. The Property Paralegal position requires an individual with the ability to handle a variety of different tasks in a thriving Property team. Some of these tasks include, dealing with leases, licences, deeds of covenant, running a caseload, working as part of a larger team and handling all aspects of the Conveyancing transaction and maintaining close contact throughout the process with clients.
About our Firm:
Our firm is established and has a reputation for providing top quality legal services to many local businesses and private clients and we pride ourselves on our client care. This reputation means the firm has an impressive and diverse base of local and regional clients, including a range of businesses and organisations resulting in the firm handling high-quality work.
What sets our firm apart is not only the good quality work and team environment, but also the great work/life balance on offer here. Unlike most regional firms, working at Pictons means you get to have a life outside of work, yet still handle a quality caseload while at work. We are committed to helping all our staff fulfil career ambitions and we strive to create an environment where each individual can understand and then achieve their full potential.
The team is close-knit and down to earth, with people from all different legal backgrounds, meaning this opportunity would suit anyone with a strong team spirit who is looking to join a firm with a genuinely collaborative and supportive working environment.
This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to progress their career working within a busy and friendly team, and to play a substantial role in practice development activities. In return the successful candidate at either level will be offered a competitive salary, structured review processes and a happy, inclusive and modern working environment.
