Senior Real Estate Solicitor

University of Oxford - Legal Services

Applications are invited for a full-time post as a senior in-house lawyer in the Estates Legal Team within the Legal Services Office. The post offers a highly qualified solicitor (or barrister), the opportunity to assume primary responsibility for some of the most complicated and valuable real estate transactions and to provide expert advice and guidance to the University on the legal aspects of those transactions and draft the key legal documents.

Reporting to and under the general supervision of the senior estates solicitor, the successful applicant will lead cases allocated to them, support other members of the team as requested and advise senior management across the University contributing and influencing policy and decision-making. The successful applicant should be adept at prioritising a significant workload and achieving deadlines and be prepared to support the provision of other legal services which are not confined solely to the fields of work mentioned above.

The successful applicant will be highly experienced in commercial property law and in the drafting and negotiating of contracts. The post holder will need to communicate confidently across the University, and will possess excellent oral and written communication skills.

Only applications received by no later than 12.00 noon on Wednesday 1 November 2017 can be considered.
