Solicitor - Property
Permanent Full Time
Are you tired of billable hours or are you already an experienced in-house property and commercial lawyer looking for a change? Sounds like we might have the job for you….
We are looking for an experienced property lawyer with a current practicing certificate to provide advice and support in the areas of property and commercial law. What will set you apart from the crowd is your previous in-house local government experience or a background working with local government clients on property, commercial and public law issues.
You will need to have broad experience in the areas of leasing, licensing, disposals and acquisitions. A background that includes providing advice on procurement processes and procedure would be an advantage. You will be very familiar with legislation affecting a local authority’s functions, including the Local Government Acts, Reserves Act and Public Works Act, and have a solid appreciation of risk and liability issues, particularly in a local government context.
You will be an excellent communicator and be able to work unsupervised to deliver high quality and timely legal advice and support to the Council’s Reserves, Infrastructure and Property teams in particular, ensuring that legislative requirements and organisational policies and procedures are fulfilled.
In return, you will be exposed to a varied and challenging portfolio of property and commercial legal work whilst giving you the opportunity to balance your interests outside of work.
