(Senior) Associate Renewables, Edinburgh

42,000 - 60,000+, generous benefits

(Senior) Associate – Renewables / Edinburgh / 2 – 7 years’ PQE / Salary £42,000 - £60,000+, generous benefits

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a talented (senior) associate solicitor with a background in renewable energy development work to join a leading law firm in Edinburgh.

The role would suit a solicitor with over three years’ PQE and a track record in dealing with the property aspects of energy deals. This role could also attract a land & rural solicitor who is keen to specialise in renewable energy and open to operating on the side of the developer.

Our client is a top ranked firm that acts for some sizeable developers, often completing complex and high value/profile transactions. You will inherit these clients and be tasked with helping grow the client base further.

There is scope for other work to be undertaken including commercial property, however renewables will be the primary focus.

This opportunity forms part of a succession plan and, as such you will be fully supported in progressing your career to partner and head of department.

An excellent work-life balance and salary package is on offer. Preference is for a full time employee, however our client will consider part time on a 4 day week.

Candidates should have/be:

  • at least two years’ experience
  • had exposure to a range of renewable energy development work, albeit our client will consider a commercial property specialist with little or no energy experience
  • core property skills such as title DD, COTs and commercial conveyancing. Those from a land & rural department with renewables experience will also be considered
  • used to handling own workload and working with limited supervision
  • excellent communication skills
  • the ability to deal with complex and high value work
  • a track record in delegating work as well as coaching and mentoring junior staff
  • a professional approach and relationship builder
  • ambitious and keen to progress to partner

Please apply below or contact Scott Caldwell for further information – confidentiality assured.
