Head of Office Conveyancing

Head of Local Satellite Office – Broad property experience essential

As Thorneycroft Solicitors embraces further growth an exciting new role is available.

We are a large innovative national firm based in Cheshire and require a confident and committed individual to help us continue to grow our private client offering at a new site.

The successful candidate will be the Manager of a new office in High Peak, managing a team of 3 on a day to day basis. This office is a local/satellite office to our main offices in Macclesfield and a further development to our other local offices.

Some of the work from this office will in due course be undertaken from our Macclesfield head office, as the work levels grow. The role will carry with it a responsibility to liaise with the relevant Heads of Department at Head Office, developing full integration between the various teams.

Other fee earners will also work from the office as required, and this role will also carry with it some level of supervision for them when they are on site.

As a Fee Earner, we are looking for someone that can cope with a mixed property caseload, although there will be opportunity to refer work to the Head Office when work levels are too high for the smaller office, or when a different specialism is required. Experience of agricultural property transactions will be a huge benefit.

We are keen to grow this office, as part of the board’s strategy, and have further staff based there as soon as possible.

The office also provides family and wills and probate advice, and you may be asked to take instruction on these types of matters to refer on to the other locally based fee earner or Head Office.
