Job Description

We are working in unusual circumstances and we appreciate that this is an unsettling time for all employees and employers, we have always believed in absolute transparency and as such we want to be clear about the status of vacancies. Some of the roles we have been working on have only very recently been placed on hold, whereas some are still live and the client has confirmed that we are to continue with our search. We will therefore indicate the status of each role clearly so that applicants are clear on the position.

This role is LIVE as recently confirmed by our client, interviews will be conducted via video calls.

Our client are looking for a Paralegal or Legal Executive to join their highly regarded Residential Property Team based in Cambridge. Candidates must have Residential Conveyancing experience with the ability to hit-the-ground-running.

The successful candidate will need to be commercially aware, bright and confident, with the ability to work autonomously and a commitment to delivering a high standard of client care. This is a varied and busy role and will require you to have good attention to detail, and excellent research skills.

Tasks will include:
-Managing your own caseload subject to supervision
-Dealing with clients, estate agents, mortgage lenders and solicitors from commencement of the transaction through to completion
-Preparing and finalising contract packs and ensuring clients are kept up to date
-Managing and conducting new development plot sales and purchases
-Dealing with post completion aspects of transactions including SDLT, Land Registry Forms and notices of transfers
-Searches, and drafting reports subject to supervision.
-General administration
-Undertaking any other duties as reasonably requested by the Team Leader or Fee Earners in order to meet the needs of the business.

The ideal candidate will have experience in both pure residential matters and development plot sale transactions. CQS training would be an advantage but is not essential.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience and grow within a dynamic, fast-paced team in a forward thinking international law firm.

The role will initially require you to work from home, with a view to transition to office based working when appropriate.
