Invicta Law, is a newly formed ABS, created as a spin-off of the Kent County Council legal team. It has 130 fee earners, making one of the largest law firms in the South East, and has significant growth plans.

It is in a fantastic position, being a start-up business, but with £10 million of income, and aspirations to grow quickly, therefore the organisation has fast become an extremely sought-after place to work.

Acting on behalf of Invicta Law, I am currently seeking a Planning and Highways Lawyer to join them on a permanent basis.

This is a fantastic opportunity to undertake a high-quality workload within a friendly team. Our client has created a warm atmosphere within the team, so they are seeking a confident, credible solicitor who will maintain this.

The successful candidate will manage a busy and varied caseload of planning and highway matters, which may include;

  • Negotiating and advising on planning and highways matters
  • Drafting legal documents, including planning and highways agreements, notices and orders
  • Working on s106 agreements
  • Managing general highways issues

It is essential that the successful Planning and Highways Lawyer has a sound knowledge of planning law and local government practices and procedures. This includes having a proven track record of dealing with complex S106 matters and providing planning advice.

It would also be extremely beneficial to have a working knowledge of highways law, compulsory purchase orders, village greens and public rights of way. In addition, knowledge of CPO work would be very useful.

The ideal candidate will have local government experience, due to the workload involved. However, our client is happy to consider candidates from other backgrounds, as long as there have been dealings with public planning matters.

Our client is seeking a senior solicitor, ideally with 7+ years post-qualification experience, although this is just a guide and candidates not meeting this PQE are still encouraged to apply. Our client is open minded as to level of previous experience and pay would reflect those levels of previous experience.

The office is well located, with motorway links nearby, and within walking distance from two train stations, therefore it is easily commutable from London and the South East.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a Planning and Highways Lawyer who is looking to develop a long term career in planning law.

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Jessica Furlong in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
