A fantastic opportunity for an experienced Conveyancing Solicitor to join a friendly, long standing and down to earth team in a reputable Leeds based firm.
The post is currently covered by two part time Solicitors. The workload consists of 90 active sales, purchases, transfers of equity and occasional remortgages of domestic properties in the Morley area. There is a large proportion of face to face client work. The annual files opened target would be 96 Purchase files, 92 Sale files and 50 transfers of equity / remortgage files and this is expected to result in fees in the first year of £100,000 and in subsequent years of £125,000.
There is much scope for further development of this department. Once initial training is complete, the successful candidate would be expected to spend approximately 30 hours per annum on practice development activities, which they may select in conjunction with the Directors. The candidate would be joining the part time commercial conveyancing solicitor, who would be a mentor to the selected candidate.
The conveyancing department is supported by a fulltime secretary and a case management system, and a full time legal executive. The team shares a communal office and has private interview facilities for seeing clients. The working week is Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, plus a rota of one Saturday from 9am to 2pm every 4 weeks. When working Saturday one full day TOIL is awarded in lieu.
There is some scope for working from home from time to time, but the convenience of the client is considered paramount.
A comprehensive program of training will be delivered to the candidate in the first 6 months of employment. This will cover internal systems and computer software plus professional development courses to ensure compliance with CQS requirements.
The firm prides itself on providing a quality personal service, delivered expeditiously. It is a member of the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme.
