Company: Commercial Development Projects
Contact Name: Nicola Tobin
Telephone: 01422 376821

The Marshall Group is a prominent and successful Yorkshire business with a long established reputation in the office, industrial, hotel/leisure and retail sectors. With consistent turnover of around £125m, the group has an impressive development portfolio and track record.

The group’s specialist development arm, Commercial Development Projects Limited, plays a key role in the success of the group, variously generating or introducing roughly 85% of group revenue, and offers extremely interesting and challenging development work for lawyers.

You will be based at the company’s main site in Elland, West Yorkshire and will handle everything from site assembly and acquisitions, to forward sales and fundings, pre-lets and investment sales. Typically, you will also get involved in some ancillary construction and planning agreements, as well as instructing the company’s external legal advisors in areas such as tax, finance and environmental.

We are looking for a full-time lawyer with a broad, excellent quality commercial property training from a respected law firm, and with commercial development experience, hours less than full-time may be considered. The company undertakes a significant amount of design and build work, together with speculative projects, necessitating sharp intellect and an appreciation of the entrepreneurial nature of this line of business. On a personal level, you need to be down-to-earth, commercially aware and results-driven.

CDP offers an excellent package, including pension and private healthcare.

Applicants should forward their CV and covering letter to Nicola Tobin, head of legal, by 28 February:


Post: Commercial Development Projects Limited, Huddersfield Road, Elland, West Yorkshire HX5 9BW
