    • The applicant will also be expected to maintain national lease precedents and strong working relationship with shopping centre landlords
  • Demonstrated skills in working both independently (as the responsible solicitor) and collaboratively within a team culture:
    • The successful applicant must work effectively within the project delivery dynamic of the Property team, and also assist the Group Legal Services team in wider legal matters that interface with property concerns from time to time
