The role:

Opportunity for a dynamic Construction & Engineering NQ, including 2023 qualifiers, seeking a mixed caseload of contentious and non-contentious work with a leading team in Bristol.

This role would suit someone who wants to join a practice that is structured as a one-stop-shop when it comes to managing construction transactions and risk management for client projects. They're looking to offer someone a mixed caseload of work, with a focus on contentious matters.

Contentious work will typically involve handling cases for both employers and contractors, including adjudication, Pre-Action Protocol, TCC, and arbitration proceedings.

On the transactional side, you will work closely with the Commercial Development and Projects teams, particularly for developer and public sector clients. This includes advising on the complexities of multi-million-pound, multi-stakeholder procurement for prestigious regional and national projects.

If you're looking to build a comprehensive skill set in construction law within a top-tier team, this opportunity could be the perfect fit!

The ideal candidate:

  • Construction & Engineering NQ with strong academics and training
  • Appetite for a range of contentious and non-contentious matters
  • Excellent organisational skills, demonstrable examples of multi-tasking and an ability to juggle competing priorities

What's on offer:

  • Highly competitive salary package and excellent benefits
  • Access to the most impactful and high-profile work available
  • Opportunity to work alongside leading individuals and next-generation partners

Unique opportunity for a Construction & Engineering NQ to join a prestigious team operating out of Bristol.
