One of the UK’s leading conveyancing legal practices expands into Swansea to support record growth

AWARD winning Welsh conveyancing practice Convey Group has opened its new offices in Swansea Enterprise Park at Swansea Vale in order to support a record period of continuous growth.

Headquartered in Newport, Convey Group currently has a workforce of over 170 individuals, having doubled in size over the course of the last 24 months in response to sustainable property transaction volumes.

The company, which is recognised as one of the leading conveyancing companies in the UK, will be looking to recruit up to 50 conveyancing professionals and trainees, with staff based at the new Swansea office and with the flexibility to work from home as they chose.

The company, which was founded in 2004, has won a host of business and industry awards including Gold National and Regional Welsh Awards at the renowned Estate Agent of the Year Awards (ESTAS) and has been shortlisted again this year.  The company has also been recognised at numerous national Chamber of Commerce Business and Staff Wellbeing Awards.

Training Contracts are available for Trainee Conveyancers and Trainee Solicitors, especially those already in the industry who are keen to progress their careers through to professional qualification. The specialist residential conveyancing practice was named Medium Employer of the Year at the Welsh Government’s prestigious Apprenticeship Awards in 2021 and won the Best New Training Initiative at the British Conveyancing Awards in 2021 in recognition of its exemplary work in training young professionals through its pioneering conveyancing pathway.

The Swansea office is led by experienced conveyancer, Convey Group Head of Legal Practice and Legal Director and current Deputy Chair of the Society of Licensed Conveyancers Laura Burkinshaw, who commented:

“I am incredibly excited to open the Swansea office in my home town. Swansea is a thriving legal area and I very much look forward to working with both experienced and trainee conveyancing professionals who are looking for a new challenge.  The Convey Group working model is very flexible in terms of working hours and hybrid working from the office or at home – or a mixture of both.”

“Our transparent salaries and long established bonus structure is the best the industry has to offer, sitting alongside a well-managed capacity management system to ensure the best possible work life balance for everyone that works with us. Convey Group is a family run business and a great place to work.  Convey Group was the first legal practice in the UK to achieve the Gold Investors in People accreditation and has won a plethora of staff wellbeing awards, including the coveted Chamber of Commerce Wellbeing Award in 2020.  We always aim to look after each other and to enjoy our work together.

“We are leading the way in relation to digital conveyancing with our revolutionary and fully integrated case management system.  It is an exciting time at Convey Group with us pioneering in terms of digital change in the conveyancing industry, whilst always ensuring traditional client service standards and family work values are at the core of everything that we do.”

Convey Group Managing Director Lloyd Davies commented:

“Over the years we have established excellent working relationships with our introducers of business who are keen for us to take on more work, despite the challenging economic climate, and the Swansea office will allow us to recruit from an excellent South Wales talent base.  We have developed and increased our workforce at all levels, including significantly strengthening our directorial and leadership team. The opening of the Swansea office will support our ambitious expansion plans, with new offices in Cardiff set to follow in 2023.

“Over the last two years we have been recruiting and training five new trainee conveyancers a month at our Newport headquarters, as well as welcoming experienced conveyancers to work with our clients or to assist with our title checking, auditing or training teams.  Our revolutionary conveyancing pathway allows us to train and qualify trainee conveyancers and solicitors quickly and effectively, with our reward and salary structure based on performance and commitment.

“Our charity work is also very important to us and we are very proud to have exceeded the charity fundraising total of £900,000 this year, supporting a wide range of our chosen charities in conjunction with the Conveyancing Foundation Charity Lotto and the dedication and support of the individuals that form our Convey Group family.

“It is a great time to be a part of Convey Group and we very much look forward to welcoming new members of staff in joining our team in South Wales.”
