Our client is an established engineering and construction sector organisation who is looking for an additional in house construction lawyer to join their extensive team based in Wakefield.

You will be exposed to a broad variety of legal work that will require solid commercial acumen. A strong background in construction law is vital for this position, in both contentious and non-contentious proceedings. As well as solid time and people management abilities, your communication skills must be second to none, as will your drafting, reviewing and negotiating expertise.

The company is involved in some of the most complex, high profile and fascinating engineering projects in the world and will be mentored in a legal team that has been with the firm for many years. As a result the successful applicant will be involved in hugely interesting and stimulating work that will push their career forward with exciting potential for progression and development. A competetive salary and package is also on offer.

Our client envisages that candidates with 2 or more years PQE will have the relevant skills/knowledge for this position, however this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant experience.

For more information on this great in-house opportunity please contact Simon Campbell at Newton Shaw. If this position isn't for you but you know someone who could be suitable then please let us know. We offer a reward fee of £250 for any successful referrals. For full details please see our website.
