You will, as you progress, be expected to obtain a sound knowledge of the processes involved in dealing with a wide variety of commercial property matters. There will be a number of opportunities for progression (including pursuing legal qualifications if desired and not already completed) with a view to eventually handling your own small case load.

• Preparing general correspondence;
• Carrying out legal research;
• Completing stamp duty land tax forms; and
• Preparing and submitting applications to the Land Registry.

Full training will be provided and, if desired, there will be opportunities for personal development.

You must be creative and open-minded as the company is going through an exciting period of growth and development. You will be required to assist the commercial property team with their innovative plans for product development and the introduction of pioneering new technologies.

Experience of assisting with commercial property matters is desirable but not required as full training will be provided.

You must:

• Have excellent communication skills both verbally and in writing;
• Be a good listener who can quickly identify a client’s requirements;
• Be able to engage with clients and adopt a personal approach;
• Be organised and be able to prioritise work;
• Be self-motivated with the ability to work well under pressure;
• Be a flexible and reliable team player who is willing to turn their hand to whatever is required of them;
• Be accurate and pay attention to detail; and
