If you are seeking an engaging and varied position where you will play a vital part in keeping a ground-breaking and nationally loved charity afloat, this is the role you've been waiting for.

Our client is the charity that saves lives at sea. They're now looking for a Senior Property Counsel to join their Legal Team at their headquarters in Poole.

This is the ideal role for a trained and qualified legal professional with a significant background in legal property work to take on a new challenge in the not-for-profit sector with an amazing charity.

As the Senior Property Counsel, you will enable our client to undertake a wide variety of property management, acquisition and sales activities to support their increasing needs and maintain their lifesaving service.

Be it acquiring land for a new lifeboat station, selling existing legacy properties, maintaining and adding to lifeguard towers on beaches or housing our client's incredible heritage collection, you'll act in a senior advisory capacity to make sure their endeavours are successful.

You'll develop a strategic vision and plan for our client's property portfolio, including acquisition, disposal and management, and will be their organisational oracle regarding all property matters and legalities.

The property they own or have been bequeathed plays a major part in their assets and enables the organisation to carry out their vital lifesaving activities. And, considering they launched their lifeboats nearly 9,000 times last year, it is critical that they have the right property, in the right place to ensure they can continue to make the 23 rescues that they made every day in 2016.

Your role will also involve:

- Managing the Legal Property Team, as well as a caseload of work
- Carrying out a wide range of commercial and residential property-related legal work
- Ensuring compliance with the Charites Act, regulators and various jurisdictions
- Considering and providing advice on developments, property disputes, planning and legal strategy

Interested? To be considered, you will need:

- A law degree and professional legal qualification
- Substantial post qualification experience in property related issues

Enthusiastic and attentive to detail, as the Senior Property Counsel, you'll also need great communication skills, a natural leadership style, the ability to prioritise effectively and a team player mentality.

Please note, the closing date for this role is the 24th July 2017. Interviews are scheduled for the 15th, 16th and 17th August 2017.

Our client's staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. They respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within their teams, and consider it essential to help deliver a world-class lifesaving service. They are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, our client also looks for applicants who share their commitment to living their values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping work towards their goal of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
