About A2Dominion Group

We are a residential property group with a social purpose. Our vision is to improve people’s lives through high quality homes and services. Whilst we take a commercial approach to housebuilding, we reinvest all of our profits into building more new homes and supporting the communities where we work, so by working with us, you are making a difference.

We provide affordable, private and social rented homes, student, NHS and temporary accommodation, as well as supported housing and homes for older people. We also offer high-quality sustainable homes for sale and shared ownership, available through our FABRICA by A2Dominion brand. Whilst we take a commercial approach to housebuilding, all of the surpluses the Group generates are reinvested into supporting our social purpose, helping to deliver more homes and services for customers.

This is an exciting time to join A2Dominion and be part of the Group’s change programme, which is transforming the way we work and improving the services we deliver to our customers.


The Legal Team is a high achieving in house legal team providing litigation and transactional property legal services. As an entrepreneurial department and team, we are constantly looking at how we can add value and improve the services provided to A2Dominion so that it can reinvest back into its social purpose. We also support professional and personal development, and many of our team members have been promoted into their roles and supported to qualification. It is because of this success, that we now have a number of opportunities in our team, owing to team members moving on to new roles consisting of promotions and new areas of law. The litigation team in particular, deals with all areas of housing management including leasehold, carries out ASB and possession and other litigation, and currently, there is a disrepair focus. The team is inclusive and diverse, and work really well as a team. We’re looking for people who can enhance our offering, are team spirited, and those who maintain an interest in what is happening in law and within A2Dominion.

If you have the knowledge and skills and an abundance of practical experience, but are yet to qualify into law, we’d also like to hear from you!
