Head of Real Estate Law Recruitment

Are you currently working in the Legal sector but looking for a career change?

Are you a Legal recruiter who is looking for the next step to running their own team?

Deverell Smith are looking for someone to join us to spearhead our drive into the Real Estate Law sector. Ideally you’ll have a background in recruiting into the Legal sector or have worked within the Real Estate Law sector directly.

Your role will entail approaching, and working with, the Real Estate departments of the UK’s top law firms, as well as targeting in house legal opportunities within our prestigious property client base.

Allied to our Executive Search team, your focus will be on high value retained work as well as identifying opportunities for senior interim level placements and cross-selling other departments at Deverell Smith such as our Marketing, Finance and Business Support desks.

We’ve already made a number of senior hires in this space without a specialised team, and against some of our well established competitors, so we’re convinced that the right person can gain traction very quickly.

Soon we’d see you recruiting a researcher to work alongside you and within time we see this team expanding to having specialist legal recruiters across a host of Real Estate Law disciplines and you to be its leader.

At Deverell Smith we’re all about progression and growth – from humble beginnings we’ve grown to be the one of the leaders of our sector. But growth isn’t about being the biggest – it’s also about being the best and we put great service at the heart of everything that we do.

All Deverell Smithers live by the same values – we are Honest, Bold, Loyal, Determined and Fun. By joining us you’ll be joining a culture that rewards excellence, supports personal development and ultimately wants to change lives.

If that not incentive enough then we also offer:

– Up to 50% commission

– A share option scheme for Principal Consultants and Managers

– Your Birthday off

– Consultant and Team of the Month Awards

– Quarterly high achievers lunches

– Quarterly team nights out

– 3 trips abroad each year – possible destinations include Ibiza, Skiing and Vegas!

– Weekly incentives including flights, meals out and shopping vouchers

If you’re interested in the chance to join our team and lead our drive into the Real Estate Law sector then please contact Chris Long, Talent Development Director on 020 3056 0279 or chris.long@deverellsmith.com
