We are working with a top 100 law firm which is looking to strengthen its construction team with an additional associate hire. The firm has an excellent reputation and is renowned for the high quality of work it undertakes which has resulted in it becoming one of the leading practices in the region.
This is an excellent city centre based opportunity which offers fantastic career progression with a good route to partnership. The firm is very open to hearing from people with a mix of construction experience and will not rule out applicants from a contentious/non-contentious background.
Preferably the successful candidate will have good academics, with an ability to work in a team environment being a particularly desirable characteristic. The firm is open to applications from a range of levels of experience, although it is anticipated that a candidate with at least 1 year PQE is most suitable for the role.
This role offers a highly competitive package based on relevant experience. This is a superb opportunity to join a highly regarded law firm with the added opportunity to make a name for yourself.
Moreover, the firm in recent years has invested heavily in the latest IT systems and actively encourages flexible/remote working.
For more information on this exceptional opportunity or for general career advice in the strictest of confidence, please contact me, Andrew Jenkins at VG CHARLES &CO.
