VG Charles is working with a top-ranking Legal 500 firm to find a construction solicitor for its established team in Kent. This would be an ideal role for a junior solicitor looking to add to their experience by dealing with high-level clientele. Whilst experience in construction would be advantageous, the firm would be happy to accept CV’s from solicitors with a commercial contracts background who are looking to learn the construction sector from one of the best teams in the region.

You will have strong client management skills, with the ability to maintain a pipeline of upcoming work, both from consistently busy clients and large scale one-off construction projects.

You will contribute to a strong and balanced team, sharing expertise from within, as well as making use of the market-leading Real Estate team within the firm. The work will be high-profile and varied, so you will be expected to show the same amount of dedication to each project in your caseload.

In order to attract the very best candidates this role offers a very competitive remuneration package as well as excellent career prospects and the opportunity to work in an open-minded and ambitious team.

There are literally hundreds of recruiters out there all claiming to be the best – at VG CHARLES &CO we make some fairly simple and straightforward claims. We NEVER lose sight of the fact that our candidates and clients are people and not commodities. We are in recruitment because we want to improve lives not just change them for the sake of it. We are here for the long haul and hope to be able to advise you not just over months but over years.

This is a cross section of some of the comments we have received:

 “I have known Jane for a number of years now. She has never been pushy or simply interested in placing me in the first available job. Instead, she has focused on finding the right job for me, at the right time for me. I would recommend Jane to anyone.”

“Tony has done an excellent job throughout. He is professional, courteous and thorough.”

“Andrew was a pleasure to deal with completely professional from start to finish. He has been supportive, encouraging and did not attempt to pressure me in any way. I would not hesitate in recommending him to my colleagues and peers. Many thanks for your help!”
