Make your mark on everything we do legally. With every transaction.


At Teign Housing, we’re passionate about giving our residents the best possible homes and our team the best and most flexible careers. Our culture of agile working means our 90 people enjoy an exceptional work-life balance, with the option of spending much of their time based at home. We believe giving you choice over where and how you work will improve both your wellbeing and your performance – creating a win-win situation for you, for us and for the thousands of people who rely on us.


About the Legal Administrator role


Supporting our Legal Executive in maintaining records and administering transactions, you will be central to the successful delivery of our Right to Buy and Right to Acquire schemes. At the same time, you will update commercial leases and resolve wide-ranging queries, assist with solicitors’ enquiries and process shared ownership resale and staircasing applications. What’s more, you will play a key role in defining leasehold responsibilities regarding repairs, whilst ensuring we comply with our obligations under the Charities Act, so every day will bring different challenges.


This is a permanent, part-time (22.5 hours per week) appointment.


About you


Experience within a legal or conveyancing team and/or within a housing association should give you everything you need to make your mark, though we offer comprehensive induction and ongoing training. A CILEX, legal secretary, paralegal or secretarial qualification would be very useful, but more importantly you will bring a methodical mindset, a proven record of delivering great customer service and demonstrable flair for managing your workload against strict deadlines.




We are an Investor in People Platinum organisation, so you will be joining a company that creates a supportive high-performance culture. You can also expect to enjoy an excellent benefits package, including:


  • Flexible working with time based at home
  • Training opportunities
  • 25 days’ leave plus bank holidays and discretionary leave between Christmas and New Year
  • Pension scheme
  • Free parking
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • And much more
