Brook Street is delighted to present an amazing opportunity to join a global financial and professional services firm who specialise in real estate services and investment management.

Our client is in business to create and deliver real value for their clients, shareholders and their own people in a complex world that is constantly changing. They have more than 40k people in 70 countries serving all of the real estate needs of those clients.

Joining the Southampton Lease Advisory team, the successful candidate will enjoy a varied workload which covers a wide variety of asset classes including office, industrial and retail across Southampton and the south coast area.

  • Assume immediate responsibility for own caseload of instructions including lease restructures, lease renewals, rent reviews and general lease advisory matters.
  • Ability to take on new instructions and provide market leading advice to clients both verbally and via written reports involving property in the Southampton/south coast area.
