Job Details

Are you looking to step away from fee earning and move into a leadership role?

This a standout opportunity for an ambitious, entrepreneurial Residential Conveyancer to head up a well-established Residential Property team in Manchester. You will drive the talented property team's growth forward and have autonomy over the direction and key decisions. The firm is on an exciting journey to expand throughout the North West and beyond, and they are looking for strong leaders to help them achieve this.

The Firm:

This is a highly regarded regional heavyweight with multiple offices across the North West. They have developed an outstanding reputation for their level of client service, which has seen them repeatedly ranked in the Legal 500 across a number of practice areas. This reputation ensures a steady stream of high-quality work which is the envy of its competitors in the region.

You will find a quality of work unheard of at a firm of this size, ranging from HNW individuals to national corporations including a host of household names. Their main areas for individuals are Property, Family, and Private Client, and on the business side, they have renowned specialist teams across Corporate, Litigation, and Employment. Within all of the areas above, they have received countless regional and national industry awards, demonstrating the firm's success and the level of technical ability that they possess.

They have revolutionised their systems and processes and have adopted state of the art technology that has streamlined their operations. This has resulted in a significant increase in productivity and client satisfaction. Their forward-thinking leadership team are continually looking for opportunities to grow the firm, making for an exciting time to join as they look to expand further in the North West and beyond.

You will find a family feel running throughout the firm, and the culture is one of the key factors that has contributed to a remarkably low staff turnover rate. They are flexible around family, were early adopters of remote working, and regularly enjoy firm nights out and trips away.

The Role:

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, entrepreneurial Residential Conveyancer to head up a well-established Residential Property team in Manchester.

The firm has an abundance of work and a talented team of Conveyancers in their existing setup. They are now looking for a commercially astute individual who can oversee the team and work closely with them to help their growth and development. This will predominantly be a leadership role, where you will have strategic oversight and influence over key decisions that are made. Ideally, you will also manage a small caseload of your own; however, this isn't essential.

Not only will you be responsible for your team's development, but you will also build and strengthen relationships with clients and referrers and increase revenue generation. This role would suit an experienced Conveyancer looking to step away from fee-earning, and move into a more relationship and performance-driven position.

For the right person, there is the very realistic prospect of Partnership in a short period of time, and you can expect the firm to work closely with you from day one as you develop your leadership skills and work toward that goal.


  • You will be a Solicitor or Legal Executive with at least five years' experience within Residential Property (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
  • You will have a strong background in Residential Conveyancing including sales & purchase, re-mortgages, and transfers of equity
  • Able to manage a close-knit team effectively
  • Prior experience managing performance and motivating would be highly advantageous
  • Strong relationship-building skills with both clients and colleagues
  • Able to undertake marketing and business development to contribute to profitability
  • Enjoy working in a challenging, fast pace environment

This is a stand-out opportunity for a Head of Conveyancing to join a growing regional law firm in Manchester, offering a highly competitive remuneration package and a clear route to Partnership.
