In-House Construction Senior Counsel - 12 months+ fixed term contract

A Construction Solicitor with 5+ years PQE is required for a maternity cover senior legal counsel post with a leading global architectural practice. This role could be based in Birmingham, Manchester or London, with a balance of home and office working.

The role is likely to be in place for between 12 and 18 months and could be done on a full-time or part-time (likely 4 days) basis. Because of the length of contact it could appeal to employees who are currently permanently employed and wanting a chance to gain some in-house experience. 

The ideal start for this senior construction lawyer post would be by August 2021 to ensure a good handover period.

This is a small but specialist in-house legal team of 3 in total. The company is open-minded on whether you come from a private practice or in-house background, although some experience of working in-house for a company is desirable. 

Your work will be a mix of non-contentious and contentious (PI claims) construction matters, as well as compliance, company secretarial and ad hoc legal work. You will instruct and manage work with excellent quality external legal suppliers, and support senior management at the company. 

Most importantly you will be commercial and wanting to get involved, taking an interest in what the business does. You will be good at building relationships with a variety of different people in the UK and other jurisdictions too, and be a good team collaborator.

For further information, please contact Adam Zdravkovic at Think Legal who can provide a job description on request.
