The role

The main focus of the Conveyancing Executive role will be to guide our clients through the end to end conveyancing process and build relationships with key partners.

What we’re looking for:

  • A knowledgeable and highly commercial Conveyancer / Fee Earner / Solicitor who can work autonomously on complex sale and purchase files.
  • Experience of working on freehold, leasehold, new build and shared ownership properties is essential.
  • Strong communication and customer service skills.
  • Leadership and performance management skills.
  • Law degree / Conveyancing qualification is ideal, but not essential.
  • Ability to build profitable and long standing relationships with clients and referrers.
  • IT literate with case management experience.

What we offer:

We offer a supportive yet autonomous working environment where you’ll be encouraged to innovate and develop your skills further. We also offer many benefits including:

  • Enhanced annual leave package, including Christmas Eve and your birthday off, and Bank Holidays.
  • Enhanced sick pay, maternity and paternity leave.
  • Future and Senior Leadership Development Programme.
  • Regular company-wide social and charity events.
  • Discounted legal services and gym membership.
  • A great work / life balance with ‘early dart’ Fridays and remote / hybrid working arrangements available.
  • Auto enrolment pension scheme.
  • Values-based recognition and reward scheme.
  • Dress for your day approach
