Job Title Property Associate (3-8 PQE) Bristol or Birmingham
Location Bristol

Bevan Brittan is a UK-Top 100 commercial law firm providing a comprehensive range of legal services from offices in Leeds, Birmingham, London and Bristol.

The firm advises over 800 businesses and is a market-leading law firm across Local and Central Government, Health and Social Care and Housing throughout the UK. We employ 450 staff, including 71 Partners, and our award-winning teams provide construction, commercial, corporate, property, regulatory, employment and litigation (commercial and clinical negligence) legal advice.

The Property Department has experienced significant growth over the last couple of years and that growth is set to continue, with major tender wins on high profile projects and clients across the country.

A vacancy has arisen within the Commercial Property team in our Bristol office, in our social housing team. The successful candidate will be a commercial property solicitor able to take on an existing caseload within the busy housing team. There are genuine promotion prospects for those with the ambition and skills to do so.

This role will involve advising clients on the full range of property matters in the social housing market, but with particular emphasis on land acquisition and development work for clients involved in the delivery of affordable housing. The ability to deal with ongoing management of property portfolios, and other landlord and tenant matters, will be a real plus.

Candidates must have experience of development work, preferably with Housing Associates. Experience of housing related property work would be helpful, but is not essential. An interest in social housing projects and a desire to specialise in housing work is important.

The successful applicant will possess the following skills key to the role:

  • Strong communication skills with a professional approach to work
  • Confidence in working directly with clients
  • An ability to build strong interpersonal relationships
  • An aptitude for drafting and legal analysis
  • A keenness to work collaboratively with colleagues at junior and senior levels
  • Excellent project management skills and the ability to work efficiently to meet deadlines
  • A practical and commercial approach
  • An interest in business development
  • An interest in the housing sector and a desire to work with housing clients
