• Land registry management – registering of completed properties and ongoing follow up
• Preparation of client bills and reading account ledgers

This is a great opportunity to join a growing, busy team where you’ll play an integral part in the delivery of excellent client care. The work is fast paced and challenging but the team are collaborative and enjoy what they do, which makes for a positive working environment.
