  • Currently sit in a real estate legal team in private practice and preferably have in-house experience from a secondment; or
  • Already be a member of an in-house legal team, where real estate matters form a focus of your role.

You must also be an excellent communicator and be able to foster strong relationships with the business and senior management team that you will be working with. In return, our client will offer a competitive salary and benefits package.

Through partnering and consulting closely with our clients and candidates on a long term basis, we ensure the best possible fit for both parties. 

Attempting to fill every role in the market through 'quick wins' is not how we operate. Instead we believe in working with integrity and building long lasting relationships. 

By combining our in-depth market knowledge with our collaborative and personal approach, we provide a level of service that goes above and beyond simply placing another candidate in another position.
