Senior Contracts Lawyer (Capital Projects)
Join an exciting Legal Service
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
This is an exciting new role that has been established in our busy and growing contracts team to support the council’s commercial agendas, in particular to lead on supporting the council’s ambitious regeneration and development projects. The pipeline of projects at Brent is on a scale that two new senior posts are being created to ensure the legal support can be effectively delivered in house.
As an experienced contracts lawyer, you will have a sound understanding of procurement regulations and statutory processes that apply within local government and specific expertise in advising on construction and other regeneration related contracts and procurement. You will be a strong team player able to play an effective influencing role in project teams.
