Are you a Construction Solicitor in Newcastle upon Tyne, considering the next phase of your career? If so read on....
Our client, a well-placed commercial practice based in the city centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, are looking for a Construction Lawyer to work directly alongside a highly experienced Partner but also work with the wider team. The team have a strong presence within the sector and undertake both private and public sector work. The work is not limited to this region but is both national and international. Many of their clients are employers but they also have a few sizeable contractor clients.
The team advises on all aspects for Construction work and whilst many of their lawyers undertake a combined contentious and non-contentious workload they are happy to speak to people who focus on either as they are actually recruiting two solicitors and can therefore be flexible as to the specific caseload.
They are looking for lawyers with up to 4 or 5 years PQE and whilst specific construction law experience would be ideal. However they are also happy to consider lawyers with up to 2 years PQE who have an interest in construction law but haven't had the opportunity to practice in this area of law as yet, they would however need strong commercial property or commercial litigation experience and need to be convinced of a real interest in this area of work.
Within this growing team you would have plenty of opportunity for client contact, but you would also get strong support in building both your technical and soft skills.
