Dealing with matters well and in a manner that is helpful to their clients is their principal aim.

Their office is open-plan, with a good atmosphere and a sense of team work. It is important to us that whoever joins them is a team player with a "can-do" attitude.

The main elements of the role will include:

- Assisting one of their Directors in dealing with his files
- Working autonomously on new files
- Taking instructions from clients
- Dealing with all aspects of missives
- Dealing with all aspects of the conveyancing process in purchases, sales, remortgages and discharges
- Completing LBTT and Registration processes
- Prioritising workload sensibly
- Ensuring a high level of client service
- Assisting as appropriate with other related office work

They are keen to hear from applicants with experience in the above areas, who have pride in their work and who are looking for a long term role with a forward thinking firm.

Salary will be commensurate with experience, and they offer a firm pension scheme.
