London is the most exciting city on earth. And right at the heart of this incredible hub of activity lies Westminster – the political and tourist heart of the city. Home to the Houses of Parliament, Piccadilly Circus, Covent Garden and China Town, Westminster enjoys a 24/7 lifestyle that is enhanced by world-famous shopping options, a diverse nightlife and a vibrant multicultural community.

Central to Westminster’s success is the fact that we are constantly reimaging the functionality of our neighbourhoods, looking for ways in which we can improve the quality of life for our residents and those who visit and work in the vicinity. With a broad array of regeneration and development projects underway and plenty more in the pipeline, our teams enjoy the scope to do something fantastic with their careers – and it is here that your legal advice could make an important impact on our property regeneration capabilities.

With an ambitious goal of building 1,850 affordable homes by 2023, our development team are enjoying an unprecedented period of growth.

You will also offer guidance on acquisition, disposal and appropriation of land and properties. This is a high-profile role with the scope to take your career to the next level.

To make the most of this fantastic role, you will have relevant amount of PQE with a particular focus on complex regeneration projects and an exemplary understanding of property law. You will need a good knowledge of public sector governance processes and your negotiation, communication and team-playing skills will be second to none. With hands-on experience of compulsory purchase and appropriation processes, you will also be fluent in risk management and mitigation.  

If you’re as productive as you are ambitious and collaborative as you are enterprising, this is your chance to take real ownership of your work, right in the heart of iconic Westminster, a true ‘City for All’. This is a unique place where it all happens and an important role offering you the opportunity to transform lives.

As a progressive and innovative organisation, we welcome applications from candidates keen to work in an agile environment with flexible conditions.
