Are you looking for an opportunity to combine property and contentious legal work and develop as a lawyer?

Join our legal team at Elmbridge Borough Council and you will work in one of the most sought-after areas in the country.

Elmbridge Borough Council is an organisation where excellence is achieved and built upon, and our legal team is no exception. The team has been awarded the Lexcel Legal Practice Quality Mark, and you will be afforded the opportunity to grow your career amongst fellow legal professionals.

Property law and litigation will be the main strengths you bring to the team. You will be comfortable in most aspects of estates management, able for instance to draft leases/licences and familiar with the land registration process. But we also want someone with an interest in regulation and able to prepare papers for prosecution and brief Counsel. Your specialist areas will be your obvious strength, but equally you should be prepared to lend a hand in other tasks that support the team.  

This post is subject to a Standard Disclosure Scotland ‘Basic’ Criminal Records Bureau check.
