  • Get involved in significant construction and infrastructure projects
  • Fantastic, cohesive team
  • Award-winning firm culture
We are looking for a junior or intermediate construction solicitor to join New Zealand’s leading ‘front end’ construction law team.  This is a rare opportunity to be involved in New Zealand's most significant construction and infrastructure projects, across all sectors including commercial building, PPPs, roading, transport, mining, waste, water, energy, oil and gas and telecommunications.   
Work ranges from front end to back end including:

• dispute resolution/ADR, and 
• Health & Safety. 

We are looking for motivated solicitors with 2-7 years’ quality construction experience from a reputable firm, great communication skills and a commitment to excellent client service.  In particular you’ll have good experience in the drafting of construction contracts. However, if you have quality commercial contract experience and a keen interest in moving into construction, this role could still be right for you. 
You’ll get plenty of top quality work,  and will be working in a cohesive, collegial team, exhibited by the team's extraordinarily high staff retention rates. 
Simpson Grierson supports progression and promises a collaborative and innovative environment of excellence.   As a firm proud of its diverse and inclusive culture, Simpson Grierson is a market leader and an employer of choice - we were voted large firm Employer of Choice at the NZ Law Awards in 2018. We would love to hear from you to discuss if you are the right person to join our team.
