Our national Real Estate team of over 150 lawyers in the UK has the breadth and depth of experience to assist our clients with their entire real estate cycle. The team is big but it doesn't mean we've lost our personal touch. It's the quality and commerciality of our service, our industry insight and the talent and passion of our people that engages our clients, and they love what we do.
We need people who are keen to be part of an ambitious team focused on growth and success, who are prepared to work hard and reap the rewards. Just as important though is the ability to have fun, to be inspired by the work you do and to enjoy the company of your colleagues. If that sounds like you, we want to hear from you.
What is the role?
The team services a range of needs and undertakes complex projects for corporate occupiers, developers, housebuilders, investors, fund and asset managers and lenders across all real estate sectors. We have a diverse mix of clients that span the public and private sector and include commercial developers, regeneration companies, household names in house building and retail, as well as offices, shopping centres and industrial/warehouse schemes.
Transactions are often high value and offer an excellent opportunity to be involved in high profile quality work.
What does the ideal candidate look like?
We're interested in seeing applications from qualified lawyers with some experience gained in a broad commercial property practice. You'll be a bright and resilient lawyer who is excited at the prospect of working in a busy yet supportive environment. Whatever your experience level, or background, you'll need excellent drafting skills, a sense of commercial pragmatism, a bright mind and a strong team ethos to help further develop the team's client base. You'll also need to be motivated to participate in business development that helps to raise the team's profile and network.
What makes it great to work here?
We continually work hard to create an open culture that sets us apart from other firms. Our culture gives us much more of a human feel, emphasising that we're more than just suits!
As signatories to the Mindful Business Charter, it's important to us that our people are able to maintain healthy and happy lives, both in and out of work. We have a number of resources and initiatives designed to support health and wellbeing and we're very happy to talk flexible working, full-time or part-time working patterns.
Through our DEI initiatives we create an environment in which difference is valued. We have an Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Group, led by our Board Sponsor, which works with our colleague networks (we currently have firm supported networks for race, ethnicity, and cultural heritage, LGBTQ+, disabilities, families, and women's career development and we're in constant dialogue with our people about how we expand our networks to better support everybody). Find out more about ED&I at WBD here. We encourage applicants from all social backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, gender identities and sexual orientations.
