Development Solicitor

Who are you?

You’re a commercially driven, astute and creative solicitor specialising in Real Estate Development. You ideally have around 3-7 years post-qualified experience. You have a fire in your belly for residential and/or commercial development work. You have a strong background at a City or leading regional firm. You’re interested in taking a step up in your career, get your teeth into some great work, and take the opportunity to grow with one of the top 4 Residential Development firms in the country.

Your new firm

You’ll join Cripps, in their modern, open plan, Tunbridge Wells office. Cripps are committed to getting the right person for the team, and will assist with relocation costs if you’re further afield. Their top Development team works with national house builders, mixed use developers, SMEs, charities, trusts, and private landowners, advising on regeneration schemes, urban extensions, strategic land, residential housing developments, etc. Their work is vastly complicated - and fun! In terms of quality, the work is on par with the City, if not better.

The team is fluid, fun, dynamic, and exciting! They have a corporate client image, but behind the scenes there’s a fantastic collegiate spirit. They sit around the table working together - you won’t be stuck in the corner with a pile of files. From curry nights to white water rafting and everything in between, the team also have a lively social life.

Your role

The team are really keen to grow, and find the perfect person to take them to the next level. You will come in and find a wealth of great work at your level to take the lead on. You’ll also participate in the firm’s biggest deals - a partner on the team describes it as “big chunky sexy exciting stuff”! Cripps aren’t a firm that channels everything through the partners - you’ll be on the front line as much or as little as you want. The team are very senior and experienced, so there’s opportunity to come in and make a name for yourself at your level.

Your work-life balance

Cripps can offer you a quality of work on par with, or exceeding, the City, but with a far superior work-life balance. Whether you’ve burnt out on the City life, feel the crippling hours are crushing your soul, or you are soon to start a family, Cripps can offer you an amazing lifestyle improvement. You can be based in a beautiful heritage town, with great schools, a brilliant community, and work 5 to 10 minutes from home. A partner in the team moved to Cripps from the City 11 years ago after becoming disillusioned - he fell in love with the people and culture, and nothing has changed since.

Is your interest piqued?

Then get in touch with Hayley Rose at Harvey John, the retained consultant for this role. You can ask any questions and find out anything more you need to know.
