- Lead the in-house team.
- Contribute to the protection of buyers and sellers.
The Real Estate Authority (REA) independently regulates the real estate industry. Along with promoting high standards and professionalism in the industry, the REA helps protect buyers and sellers of property by providing information, guidance and carrying out complaints and professional disciplinary processes. It is professional and proactive.
Reporting to the General Counsel, the Legal Services Manager will lead a team of solicitors who actively manage the litigation files, including appearances, and provide legal counsel to the Chief Executive, Board and external stakeholders including Independent Complaint Assessment Committees. The Manager will lead the operational function as well as taking on their own portfolio of high-profile cases.
You must be a senior-level public law practitioner who has experience leading a team and in a litigation environment. Ideally, you will have worked in a regulatory environment and enjoy working in a smaller, well-resourced in-house team.

The REA legal team deals with challenging and stimulating work with great variety. This is a great opportunity to join them in a family-friendly, flexible work culture.
