Role: Conveyancer (Social Housing)
Hours: Full time
Vacancy Reference: 392-PTN
We are looking to hire a self motivated and preferably experienced Conveyancer who will provide an outstanding service to our social housing clients. You will be responsible for managing your own clients and caseload, with an emphasis on producing high quality work to tight timescales. You will have the support of the team to ensure that our clients receive a first class service. Your regular duties will include:
- Following case progression protocols and procedures
- Call handling
- Collation and creation of documentation
- Preparing reports for clients
- Progressing transactions from inception to completion
- Train and supervise junior members of your unit
- Providing after sales assistance to our client developers
This is a busy role, with deadlines to manage and competing priorities, so you will be required to work quickly, accurately and efficiently and remain calm under pressure. You will be expected to think ahead to meet the needs of the team and clients. The above list is not exhaustive but provides you with an overall framework for the activities that are carried out by the Social Housing Conveyancing team.
It is an integral part of this role that you comply with information security and all firm policies and procedures.
Previous experience of working within a legal environment is essential. If you have experience of working within a busy conveyancing team then we would very much like to hear from you.
This role will suit you if you would like to prioritise your own workload, work to tight deadlines to produce work of a high standard, and can work with minimum supervision.
You will need to demonstrate from experience that you are exceptionally organised and proactive, that you have a flexible ‘can-do’ attitude, and that you have the skills to work closely with various stakeholders and have direct contact with the firm’s social housing clients.
We expect you to be someone who takes pride in your work and in providing a first class support service to your colleagues, anticipating their needs in advance wherever possible, and paying meticulous attention to detail in all of your work.
You will have excellent spelling and grammar skills. You will be proficient with the usual Microsoft packages, including Excel and be comfortable with learning new databases and other software packages.
You should be able to demonstrate a solid level of academic achievement, with a minimum of 6 GCSE passes at grade C or above (or equivalent), including English and Maths.
Finally, we are looking for someone who can demonstrate initiative and problem-solving skills and a willingness to learn and develop, not only yourself, but the other junior members of the team which will help you thrive in this role.
