We have an exciting new vacancy in the residential conveyancing department of our recently launched sister law firm, ACUMEN PEOPLE, which is part of the Acumen Law group (www.acumenlaw.co.uk). We are now looking for an exceptional individual to join our unique, modern, award winning law firm.
At Acumen, our culture and values are every bit as important as technical ability. By joining our team in Hove in East Sussex, you will become part of a top 50 Law Firm (Financial Times) that is different to any law firm you will have experienced before. We’re democratically run, with no secretaries or internal hierarchy and no office dress code (other than when attending client meetings). Acumen is a place where everyone can and does make a difference and we won’t compromise on service to increase profits. In addition, you will be part of a developing department, able to actively take part in the future direction of the business.
Our culture is all about being inclusive and respect for individuality. In June 2016 we took the entire firm on a 4 day trip to Spain at a beautiful boutique hotel at the top of a mountain, to celebrate 33% financial growth. In June 2017 we were on our travels again, this time to a beautiful Villa in Tuscany.
To fill this role, you will need to be comfortable dealing with transactions to include leasehold, shared ownership, help to buy and new build and, in order to hit your annual billing target, will need to manage a proceedable pipeline of 45-50 files at any one time. You will also play a key role in business development and helping form future strategies and initiatives for growth. Please see the job description for full details.
Office hours are 9am – 5pm, Monday – Friday.
Remuneration: competitive pay + profit share scheme
If this sounds like the opportunity you have been looking for, we would be delighted to hear from you so don’t wait, get in touch!
