Our client is looking for a strong contentious construction paralegal for an initial 6-9 month role, but it could extend beyond that.

The Paralegal will ideally be experienced in dealing with construction matters and able to use that technical knowledge and experience in the role.

The Paralegal will be assisting on a range of complex construction disputes including adjudications and arbitrations on major overseas infrastructure projects in the Middle East.

To be considered you MUST have a minimum of 2 years paralegal experience in litigation and arbitration, ideally within construction. You must be mature and international in your approach. Candidates who do not fit that criteria will not be considered and your CV will not be retained.

The ideal candidate will be available as soon as possible.Salary £34K-£36K FTE
