QED Legal are working with a major worldwide engineering and construction business. They are looking for a Construction Solicitor to join their busy in-house legal team.

The work is exceptional quality and the projects that the group has been involved with spans a broad spectrum of global engineering projects. They also handle major infrastructure projects involving utilities and energy providers, as well as critical environmental schemes. There will be exposure to international work if desired.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Provide advice on dispute avoidance and dispute management
  • Provide general ad-hoc legal and commercial advice and support as required
