Are you a Solicitor looking to go In-House? This is an amazing opportunity to become General Counsel for a leading Property Management company.

The Company

This is a business that manage apartment buildings & private residential estates and they have been operating for a few decades. As such, they're very good at what they do and are a very good company to join, particularly at this time of expansion and growth (which is the reason for this role).

Role Purpose:

    • Relevant legislation and regulation, as amended by case law from time to time
    • Lease provisions and TP1 covenants (including review of new site leases)
  • Work closely with the operations team in each business to ensure the KPIs that are in place effectively monitor and manage compliance in line with above;
  • Act as a source of technical guidance for the operational teams on property management matters (lease, code and legal compliance, dealing with FTT or ombudsman issues);
  • Work closely with the group audit & risk committee, staff and executive management to assist the business in operating its risk management framework (reporting and analysis of risks);
  • Maintenance of standard terms of business and commercial terms with clients;
  • Ownership of the company secretarial service to clients (supervision of two staff that cover all aspects from manco incorporation, directorships, maintenance of registers, statutory filings and meeting management);
  • First level advisory service for all legal matters impacting the organisation (in conjunction with external counsel if required);

Main requirements:

  • Pro-active, commercial and solution focussed attitude
  • Must be prepared to travel a bit and to be flexible with regard to business requirements
  • Excellent people skills and ability to communicate
  • Experience of property law or compliance within the property sector
  • Relevant academic and professional qualifications

  • This is an incredible opportunity to become Head of Legal, Risk & Compliance at a stand-out company in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
