A fantastic firm in Ardwick is looking for a housing litigation solicitor or fee earner to join the team.
Since the Head of Housing Disrepair was placed by Douglas Scott within this firm several months ago, the housing disrepair and landlord & tenant offering has become a robust part of this firms offering, and as such there is scope to bring in a talented solicitor or fee earner to join the team. The firm in question is offering a fantastic benefits package, on site gym and parking, and highly competitive salaries.
The role of housing litigation fee earner will involve handling up to 150 files, and the case load will be incredibly varied but will involve a lot of housing disrepair matters - both litigated and pre-litigated.
The ideal candidate for this housing litigation position will have a solid understanding of local authority processes in relation to landlord and tenant issues and social housing, and you must have experience in acting on behalf of the tenant. Ideally, the most suitable candidate for the role will have at least three years of experience independently handling a high case load of both litigated and pre-litigated housing files.
This is an excellent role for a housing disrepair / landlord & tenant fee earner who is keen to join a team where there is a lot of scope for progression as it continues to grow.
