An exciting, interim position has arisen within a Yorkshire-based Housing Association. Our client, a national not for profit housing association, is looking for a Property Legal Officer to cover a maternity in their team for a 12 month period.

The successful candidate will work under the head of department dealing with a wide range of property transactions. A firm understanding of conveyancing law is a must.

Day to day duties:
- Dealing with leasehold properties, including litigation and disputes
- Handling right-to-buy and right-to-acquire matters
- Drafting bespoke leases and dealing with transactional conveyancing matters
- There may be some commercial property and landlord and tenant matters


The ideal candidate must have previous experience dealing with conveyancing and property matters, ideally in a public sector or not for profit organisation, although those with relevant experience will also be considered.

Candidates wishing to apply will ideally be a Qualified Solicitor, Legal Executive or Barrister, although those qualified by experience will be considered. Travel may be required to other sites from time-to-time so access to a vehicle would be beneficial.

The role is due to start mid-February and equates to 35 hours per-week, based around a standard 9-5 work day with an hour for lunch, although flexibility is available dependant on workload.

Our client is a friendly and innovative association offering a range of employee perks/ benefits. For further information, or a full specification, please contact Emily Kirkpatrick or Liam Wilkinson at Venn Group.
