Paralegal What we offer...

We understand how important life is outside of work so, as well as a competitive salary and 33 days annual leave, we are totally committed to flexible working. We'll support you, wherever possible, so that you don't miss out on what truly matters to you.

If you do ever need a little bit of extra help we have a great employee assistance programme, financial well-being support and access to loads of great discounts with leading high street names.

Our range of network groups are also there to support you to truly be yourself at work and play a key role in helping shape our future.

If you are a member of a professional body we'll pay for your membership and once you get your top of the range digital kit you'll be good to go in one of our great offices.

A bit about the role...

Working in our Contracts and Projects team within Legal Services, the Paralegal - Land will play a critical role in providing customer facing services in relation to Homes England's land interests. You will be joining our small but friendly and experienced team, who are committed to delivering a first-class customer service. The team works in a collaborative, supportive way whilst delivering Homes England's priorities.

This is a rare chance to join the Legal Services team in a fast growing, national organisation with real social purpose. Working with multiple professional teams within Homes England, external solicitors and members of the public, you will deal with varied transactions relating to our legacy land interests including restriction consents, release of charges, simple conveyancing transactions, and general queries. There will also be the opportunity to become involved in the wider work of the Contracts and Projects team.

A bit about you...

Whilst our day job is to deliver first class customer service to our stakeholders, you will be used to "spinning several plates" at once and will always be looking for ways to improve and innovate.

You'll be able to understand and interpret legal documents quickly, and effectively decide how a matter should be dealt with. You'll need to be a good at prioritising your caseload and working at pace.

Delivering on a mission as bold as ours isn't always easy. You will be resilient and comfortable managing a large caseload with an understanding of the environment we operate in as a public body. You will enjoy working in an innovative, fun and engaging way and be able to negotiate and persuade.

You'll be able to demonstrate you can work with others as part of a team in a collaborative, inclusive way.

Who are we?

We are the Government's national housing agency. Our role is to accelerate the pace of house-building across the country, particularly in areas where there are the most serious affordability issues - meaning people are struggling to find homes.

We have the appetite, influence, expertise and resources to drive positive market change and meet the Government's ambition to deliver 300,000 new homes a year. We are using our land, influence, funds and knowledge to increase the pace, scale and quality of new homes accelerating delivery in areas of greatest demand and helping create great places to live. Within the next few years, we will have invested over £27 billion across our programmes. To deliver against these aims we're building a different kind of public service - join us to help make this happen.

We would encourage all applicants to apply as soon as possible as we may close vacancies early should we receive a high number of applications. We also encourage you to apply using the full application option as opposed to quick apply, this is especially important if you would like to indicate to us that you would like to be considered under the disability confident scheme.

If your application is shortlisted to interview we will require you to provide proof of your right to work in the UK at that stage.

Homes England are a geographically diverse community. We are all hybrid working at the moment spending some of our time working from home and some based at our offices which are spread across England. The wellbeing of our colleagues remains one of our top priorities.

Please note that Homes England are currently consulting on a pay and grading review. We will share information with candidates about the outcome of this review and any impact that this may have on this role throughout the recruitment process.

If you are an internal applicant you will be subject to our interim pay controls, details of which can be found on the intranet.
