To facilitate that growth they now seek a dedicated legal manager who can work closely with the Board to implement efficiencies, processes, manage risk, provide technical legal advice on property transactions and project manage large scale acquisitions, sales, and finance matters.

There is also the opportunity to provide expertise across more niche property areas if that is your background.

We are very much open on technical background as a large part of the role will be managing the external panel ensuring high standards, value for money and an efficient service.
