There's no more exciting time to be thinking about joining Womble Bond Dickinson than now.  We've made no secret of the fact that we're ambitious and our recent move to become a transatlantic firm is just further evidence of that.  For our people this makes for a really exciting future, one in which everyone has a role to play in furthering our ambitions whilst enjoying challenging and fulfilling careers.  And the dynamic nature of the legal sector is just one challenge that we need to respond to as a business to ensure that our clients get the best possible service from us and our business continues to be sustainable.  One of the ways in which we're responding to the market is through continued investment in our "Onshore" team; a team of solicitors, chartered legal executives, paralegals and management information specialists, capable of providing support to the wider business on a regular and ongoing basis, for discrete projects or secondment opportunities.   As part of this continued investment, we're now looking for experienced property specialists to join the team in Plymouth

So what are we looking for?

As a Conveyancing Executive in this team you'll have the opportunity to work on a wide variety of property matters for clients spanning the public and private sectors, including household names in the housing, banking, commercial investment and development, education and energy sectors.  The Onshore Real Estate team deal with a range of matters which could involve you working on  LPA Receiverships, residential conveyancing, plot sales, rent arrears, service charge claims, title review projects, lease reports, property searches, land registry applications, SDLT returns, deeds of surrender, licenses for works, licences to assign, notices of assignment, statutory declarations, project due diligence and managing data rooms.

But don't worry, we don't expect you to have gained experience across ALL of these activities.  That's what being a team is all about, and we're keen to hear what great technical expertise you can add because we'll be looking to you to help mentor, coach and supervise some of the more junior members of the team.  But it's not all about the technical skills.  It's important that we offer our clients (both internal and external) the best possible client experience and we believe that comes from allowing them to build strong and meaningful relationships with their legal team, and giving them the best sound commercial advice, something you'll be more than capable of doing.

Whilst we can give you some great development opportunities, we're expecting you to already be proactive, motivated and able to manage your workload effectively and with minimal supervision.  You'll certainly be highly organised, efficient and able to prioritise effectively as we often work to tight and urgent deadlines.  As a client facing role, you'll need to be able to build and maintain strong relationships, recognising what matters most to our clients and delivering on their expectations consistently. 

What's in it for you?

We know that it's not all about us.  You'll want to be assured that this is the right opportunity for you and we really believe that this is a fantastic place to work.  You'll be joining a supportive team where you can learn from true leaders in their field and build your experience with access to great quality work and great clients. Supported by a collegiate approach, and firm wide commitment to career development there are fewer better places to develop your legal career.

And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.

If you think this is for you, why not get in touch to find out more; my name is Samantha Lee and you can reach me on 0117 989 6521.
