The Opportunity

We currently have a team of Consultants who work on Construction matters, and following continued growth and in response to client demand, we have now identified the need to have a dedicated in-house team. A majority of our current Construction work comes from our Education Sector, however, there is scope to increase this work and also capitalise on work from other Sectors within the firm as well (the Charity and Business Sectors in particular).

Key Responsibilities

  • Effectively manage an individual caseload, and delegate to and provide supervision to more junior members of the team as required.

  • To carry out your work for both colleagues and clients to the highest possible standard, having regard to the Firm’s standards, procedures and Core Values.
  • Work with the Business Development & Marketing Team in order to develop the Firm’s reputation and client base.
  • Feed into the budget process annually, and take responsibility for the financial performance of the Construction Team.

Requirements

The successful candidate will be a Senior Solicitor or Partner in a well-regarded firm.

The ideal candidate will have the potential to market the firm and should have a strong interest in business development. Typical business development opportunities would include, but are not limited to: attending seminars and networking events, presenting workshops to the firm’s clients and being involved in pitches/tenders.
