An unmissable new role has arisen for a Residential Conveyancing Solicitor to join a highly regarded team based our client's Chester Le Street office. The firm is looking to recruit someone who will act as the Technical Advisor to the department, so alongside your role as a Technical Advisor, you will also be fee earning too.

This is a fantastic new role for a Solicitor who specialises in Residential Conveyanicng matters who is looking for something a little different and a more 'hands on' role, providing you with the opportunity to lead and support members of the department.

The Role:

You will be the Technical Advisor to the department. This will therefore be a really varied opportunity and you will be required to complete risk assessments and manage compliance matters for the department.

You will be providing technical advice to the team, training and working closely with other technical advisors within the team to identify training needs. You will also be managing your own caseload of more complex matters (approximately 10-15 per month).

It is essential that you will have experience handling leasehold/freehold and registered/unregistered property work.

You will be required to capture information/data onto the firm's case management system and run pre and post completion procedures as required.

The Candidate:

The firm is happy to be fairly open minded with the level of PQE they are looking to recruit at. As long as you have a proven background in Residential Conveyancing matters and a keenness to work hard, then please don't hesitate to apply if you think you should be considered for this role.

It is vital for this role that you have an excellent technical residential conveyancing background and are confident in all technical matters such as title checking, conducting reports on title and raising enquiries just to name a few.

You will have experience of leasehold/freehold and independently running a broad caseload of Residential Conveyancing files.


A competitive salary and benefits package is on offer for the successful candidate, as well as the opportunity to work within a highly regarded department.

This is a great managerial opportunity combined with the responsibility of managing a significantly reduced caseload of more complex conveyancing matters.
