We’re experts in the recruitment of technical construction staff for this exciting field of work, no matter how much construction disputes experience they currently have on their résumé. We understand our clients’ needs whether they are a claims, expert witness or specialist legal firm, and can assess candidates that are relevant for each type of company.
What Do You Need to Work in Construction Disputes?
This is a very wide question with no “one” answer. A dispute can arise for a variety of different reasons, on any construction project, in any construction sector, in any location and at any time! It also depends which type of company you would like to work for as a construction disputes specialist. The main thing is a solid background in a technical discipline such as Quantity Surveying, Planning, Engineering or Construction Management. As long as you have a good foundation of skills in one of these areas, there is a good chance you will be eligible for a specialist role (subject to a few variations depending on the type of company you are applying for).
Why Work in Construction Disputes?
The world of construction disputes opens up a whole world of opportunity. You will experience a wide variety of projects throughout a given year, and UK based consultancies in particular have a fantastic reputation globally for being experts in construction disputes. You will be working in a sector in which your work will be under constant scrutiny, so quality is king. This means that if you work in this sector, you can take pride in knowing that you have the ability to produce work which is of the highest standard, and take pride in this.
Progression opportunities are rife should you prove you have this ability. I have seen people progress very quickly in the construction disputes sector, arguably much quicker in general than working for a contractor or multi-disciplinary construction consultancy organisation. Good work is rewarded if you show the ability and have the drive to succeed – this line sounds standard, but it is literally the case. As well as being rewarded with responsibility, you will be rewarded financially with lucrative bonuses and good increases in salary as you become more senior.
