Job Details

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated property lawyer to join our experienced legal team.

As a senior lawyer in the property team you will support the Council’s major projects teams, working on a range of multi-disciplined, high profile projects such as York Station Gateway, York Outer Ring Road and York Central.  You’ll be part of a team that gets constant exposure to high profile cases and who provide advice on a varied and complex level, in addition to advising on a wide range of property transactions relating to the council’s extensive housing and commercial property portfolio.

As part of a wider legal service you will be at the forefront of big changes as we implement the new Council Plan. 

If you are an ambitious, innovative solicitor, barrister or CILEX with significant property experience and would relish the opportunity to influence change - a role within our service area could be your next career move.

Hybrid working arrangements are available for this role. Each role at CYC is different and your working arrangements will be determined based on the requirements of the role and in collaboration with you and your needs as part of the recruitment process. Your contractual location will be the designated council office for your team.

This role is suitable as a job share opportunity.

This post is deemed as politically restricted. As designated politically restricted officers, employees will not be allowed to undertake certain activities. Please refer to the guidance attached for further information.

The Council is committed to investing in the talent and wellbeing of our staff and can offer a generous annual leave allowance, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, comprehensive Health & Wellbeing initiatives and a reward package which recognises your contribution. We can offer flexible working practices, community engagement and volunteer activities and, as part of our commitment to you, promote continuous Learning & Development. In addition we also offer a growing range of discounts, rewards and savings.
