Role: Solicitor or Associate (Up to 4 PQE)
Location: Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, London, Taunton, or Southampton
Hours: Full time
Vacancy Reference: 386-LVS
We are looking for a non-contentious construction lawyer to primarily support our busy team in Bristol but we are open to you working from other CW Offices, with a view to you spending at least a day a week in our Bristol office. Although your primary role will be to support the Bristol team you will also support the other teams in the other offices. This is an opportunity to get involved in high quality, complex major projects and development work. We act for several large developer clients and are also regularly involved on large infrastructure projects, in both energy and natural resources and the nuclear arena.
You will be based in a friendly and supportive team, and will be able to work closely with our construction partners and the rest of the team. The non-contentious team works closely with the contentious team and also with commercial property, banking & finance and corporate/commercial colleagues. Due to the wide variety of types of projects we work on, you will soon get to work with many different departments and get to know people in the firm. We also work cross-office and so you will also have the opportunity to work with colleagues across all of our 7 offices.
We like to invest in your career, so you will have plenty of one-to-one development and encouragement from your supervising partner, and the wider team. We also have a series of different training programmes in place, to give you good grounding and a good rounded knowledge of your field. We will ensure that you get a good level of client contact and early responsibility for your own matters, allowing you to ‘hit the ground running’ and really get ‘stuck in’.
We also do a lot of business development and you will be encouraged to participate in networking and marketing activities. We are highly sector and client focussed, so spending time with clients and potential clients will be part and parcel of your role. We are also a sociable team, and often participate in firm wide competitions, pub quizzes, charity events and sports teams.
It is an integral part of this role that you comply with data security and all firm policies and procedures.
We are looking for someone with the potential to become a big name in construction – so you will demonstrate talent, ambition and a real interest in non-contentious construction work and major projects. You might have up to 4 years post qualification experience, with a good work ethic and a keenness to progress within the firm.
