‘The only way to do great work is to love what you do’… and that’s exactly what the Legal Property Team at Surrey County Council are doing! 

Are you looking for a new opportunity to develop your career in commercial property law? Why not join our flexible, friendly and supportive team and make a real difference with the work you do?

Legal Services play a key role in delivering timely, clear and effective legal advice and representation to the Council. The Legal Property Team is responsible for supporting and advising the Council on an array of property related matters ranging from Landlord and Tenant work, major projects and strategic advice. We also deal with specialist areas such as Town and Village Greens and commons and can guarantee exposure to a breadth of work so you never stop learning and developing your expertise!

The Team has expanded considerably in the last year and the demand for support on property matters continues to increase. We are looking to expand the team further by recruiting 2 additional Lawyers to join the current team of 5 lawyers, a Legal Charges Assistant, a Paralegal and a Trainee Lawyer. 

We are looking for two flexible, motivated and ambitious property Lawyers with experience of commercial property work to join our progressive service. As a Lawyer in the Council’s Legal Property team, you will have an unrivalled opportunity to actively and strategically contribute to the future delivery of first-class legal services. 

To apply and be considered for this position you must be a qualified solicitor or barrister and your application will clearly evidence:

  • Demonstrable experience of providing advice and dealing with commercial property transactions
  • An ability to manage your own caseload with minimum supervision
  • Flexibility to prioritise workloads and provide commercial and solution focussed advice
  • A willingness to develop in new areas of property related work
  • A team player who supports colleagues and the work of the team 

The administrative base for the Council’s Legal Services is Woodhatch Place (Reigate), however, the Council adopts an agile working policy with flexible working arrangements which includes access to our office in Weybridge as well as remote working. We intend to continue working in a flexible manner in the future. The team are very approachable (even when working remotely) so there will always be someone to provide you with support and discuss matters with.
 
At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow. 

If you have any questions about the role, please contact Kate Patel by email at kate.patel@surreycc.gov.uk.

From flexible working to job sharing (where possible) we are committed to providing a healthy work life balance. A laptop and mobile will be supplied if applicable to your role. You will benefit from 26 days annual leave, rising to 28 days after 2 years’ service, a generous local government salary related pension, as well as the option to join our car lease scheme.
