*** Planning Role with Top 100 Firm: c.3-7 PQE)
This is a great opportunity for Planning Solicitor, most likely between 3-7 years' PQE, to join a Top 100 firm, which has real momentum.
The firm has always had a strong focus on the Property Sector and the Planning department forms a key part of the firm's continued success and growth. The Planning team is led by a Partner who has a relatively broad practice. The firm's Property department also has a strong developer client base which naturally benefits from having a strong Planning team in place.
The role will suit a driven Planning Solicitor, who has wants to take up an important role in a smallish direct team but enjoys working closely with other teams (Real Estate/Construction, etc). Again, a personable individual, who wants to be involved in BD activities will also find this a satisfying role. Whilst BD is always important that is not to say the team is quiet, it isn't - there is plenty of work for the new joiner to be involved with from the start, hence the need to recruit!
On offer is broad work load, a strong brand on your CV, a real chance to get involved with Business Development and a competitive salary without tough City hours. As such, we feel this really is a great opportunity.
The successful candidate will have gained significant private practice experience, in the UK, in their career - ideally having trained and gained some, if not all their PQE, within a private practice. A Planning Solicitor, who is currently in-house but looking to move back to private practice, having gained UK private practice experience previously, would also be of interest. A Real Estate Solicitor, who has enjoyed working in Planning matters and would now like to focus on Planning would also be of interest.
