Our Construction team are in an exciting place. Under the leadership of Ian Stubbs we have transformed our approach to the market and have secured a number of significant client wins in the last year.

In order to continue this level of success, we are looking to bring in experienced and exceptional lawyers to complement our talented team based in either our Bristol or Exeter office.

This is a very busy, challenging role, which is what you would expect from the quality of clients and work we now advise on.

You will have the genuine opportunity to fast track your career within a growing team, which operates without glass ceilings and where your progression is entirely merit based.

We have fully embraced both agile and flexible working; we value output not presenteeism, which means there is time to fit your lifestyle with your work commitments.

We offer every employee a weekly life style hour to use as they wish, no questions asked. You'll have free fruit, access to treadmill walking desks to boost your creativity or you could just join one of the numerous running clubs.

Whatever it is we recognise that you will spend a lot of time at work and we want you to be happy and comfortable in order to be at your best.

What you'll do

You will have a varied caseload working on major national and international projects across industry sectors including energy, infrastructure, advanced manufacturing and technology, waste management, leisure, education and real estate.

As we are looking for more than one lawyer you could be operating on a contentious, non-contentious or mixed workload.

You will meet with clients regularly and undertake and lead business development initiatives to develop new clients. We want you to be well rounded with a strong commercial acumen and you won't achieve this if you're chained to the desk.

Your targets are achievable to ensure you can focus on the long term benefits for you and the firm and not just have you billed enough hours today.

What we need

This will be a challenging and demanding role, working to tight deadlines and supporting highly valued clients. In order to be a success you will demonstrate the following :

  • You will have a minimum of 3 years post qualification experience within a construction practice from a recognised firm.
  • We are looking for both contentious and non-contentious lawyers.

  • Our clients are at the centre of everything we do. You will be able to demonstrate a focused client centric approach. You will ensure our clients our successful and you will provide a solutions led service to achieve this.
  • Strong commercial acumen. You will help grow the practice with the ability to identify opportunities, whilst actively cross-
  • selling to strengthen client relationships.
