Head of Department - Residential Property - Oxford
I am looking for senior residential property solicitors that would be interested in a head of department position at a growing and successful firm in Oxford
It is envisaged the successful candidate will be a solicitor, legal executive or licensed conveyancer with a minimum of 5 years PQE. You will be expected to oversee the running and development of a current team of 4 conveyancers dealing with residential property matters. You will be expected to have experience in a broad range of residential conveyancing matters including sales and purchases as well as leases, overage agreements, conditional contracts and easements. Due to the location and their reputation that they have for themselves they regularly trusted to act with regards to high value transactions throughout Oxfordshire and further afield and so experience of dealing in high value transactions would be desirable.
The department is thriving at the moment due to their excellent reputation for property work. The firm takes pride in their personal and individual service that they offer to their clients and take a quality over quantity approach to the way in which they run things. Therefore this role would suit someone with a confident and professional client facing style who enjoy the personal side of conveyancing and has the ability to be able to build up lasting relationships with clients and work providers.
The firm sees this as a key strategic appointment for them and so the successful candidate would become an integral part of the team right from day 1 and with the full support of the partners would be responsible for spearheading the continued development of the property team. You will therefore be expected to get involved with the marketing side of things in order to help maintain and build lasting relationships to ensure the future success of the department.
This role may be of interest to those looking for a lateral move with experience of managing a team or alternatively an experienced solicitor looking to make the step up to a senior position but perhaps are not forseeing getting such opportunities at their current firm.
The firm is big enough to offer a supportive working environment but small enough so that your contribution to the firm will be noticed, appreciated and rewarded. You will be paid a good salary based on experience as well as other great benefits such as bonuses, generous holiday entitlement and much more .Great progression prospects will be available for the successful candidate as this is a firm that looks to encourage staff to reach their full potential which leads to many lawyers staying her their whole career as they are able to achieve all of their career ambitions with the firm
