Delivering effective legal support. That’s when it hits home
About the role
You will provide a customer focused Legal service, partnering with internal colleagues to deliver and ensure effective legal support in respect of housing law litigation matters including, but not be limited to, anti-social behaviour cases, all other tenancy related matters including possession actions, Leasehold matters, and other operational support in respect of disputes and contentious matters. You will be responsible for representing Home Group at Court and instructing external agents as necessary.
You’ll be either a qualified solicitor or legal executive with experience of housing law litigation and other civil litigation work. You will have experience of dealing with anti-social behaviour cases. You’ll be enthusiastic and enjoy working as part of a team and dealing with a wide variety of work and internal clients.
You will have a customer/client orientated approach to service provision, as well as experience of working directly with customers/clients in an environment where service excellence is paramount. Furthermore, you will have the ability to utilise departmental and group wide processes that will drive improvements across the legal services team. Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll help to you understand how things work at Home Group!
Furthermore, you will assist with the ongoing process of our policy development and compliance with our statutory obligations as a registered provider of social housing.
Here at Home Group we have invested heavily in our future and use current and up to date equipment and have a digital first agenda. You’ll be issued with the latest kit, which could include a Surface Pro and mobile. So, it's important to us that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!)
About our team
You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about supporting our colleagues throughout the business to provide a brilliant service to our customers. To us we’re not just a team we’re a ‘work family’. Our manager is Robert who has worked with Home for the last 18 years and outside of work, he likes to coach at his local running club, where he is passionate about promoting inclusivity for all. There are 4 of us in the team and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too!
In order to meet the needs of our customers, we need to be flexible. This means you’ll work 3.5 days per week to be mutually agreed. As we’re asking you to be flexible for us, we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!
The great news is that you will have the flexibility of working either from home or in one of our local offices and we’ll give you the technology and kit to make that easy. Our team will come together for meetings at our head office in Newcastle so you will be happy to travel to join the team.
