An ideal candidate will have a strong academic background (LLB & LPC/LLM essential) and will have at least two years prior experience within a respected Real Estate and or Construction department.

The primary duties of this role, however not exhaustive, are to:
* Negotiate and agree a range of commercial agreements- including appointments
* Negotiate and agree deeds of novation sub-consultancy
* Negotiate and agree sub-consultancy and confidentiality agreements
* Provide ad-hoc legal support to the wider In-house Legal team
