You’ll see cases through to completion, enjoy a high level of responsibility and get more hands-on experience while getting a better work-life balance and greater flexibility.

You will work on a variety of construction projects, drafting and negotiating JCT and NEC contracts with internal and external clients, including developers. You will also act as a technical expert on construction law and keep up to date with the latest developments and best practices.

We have pioneered a system of agile working which provides our lawyers with the opportunity to work within the office environment and remotely. Our positions are full time at 37 hours per week, but we are also open to part-time working.

Our clients are diverse, and the work is stimulating and varied with the opportunity to work on challenging projects that make a meaningful difference.

The team is currently made up from lawyers from the public sector, private sector and home-grown talent and we would welcome applicants from a range of legal backgrounds including lawyers who are interested in beginning a new career in local government.

Benefits include:

  • Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Generous holiday allowance
  • Employee benefits scheme
  • Health and wellbeing support
  • Enhanced maternity and paternity leave

Working Environment:

  • Award-winning legal team comprising over 140 legal professionals.
  • Engage with a diverse pool of colleagues, including those from the public and private sectors.
  • Embrace our pioneering system of agile working, offering opportunities to work flexibly
  • Full-time positions at 37 hours per week, with openness to part-time working
  • Non-hierarchical and friendly team culture, promoting equality, inclusion, and diversity.
  • Enjoy the benefits of a non-corporate practice, seeing cases through to completion with a high level of responsibility.

The ideal candidate will be a qualified solicitor with expertise in construction law and the confidence and gravitas necessary to manage key client relationships. This is a great opportunity for a construction solicitor who is looking for a new challenge and wants to have a positive impact on the community. You will be able to handle varied, high-quality work in a supportive and friendly team, whilst enjoying excellent work-life balance.

In summary, we are an ambitious, nationally recognised team that wants to deliver consistently outstanding legal work.
