About Eversheds
Eversheds Sutherland is not your average law firm and we're not looking for average people. We do things differently - in the way we treat our people and the service we provide. That's how we've become one of the largest law firms in the world and a great place to work and develop your career.

Eversheds Sutherland has the largest national planning team in the UK. The planning team in Cardiff has an exciting and varied workload - we have worked on some of the largest on-shore wind farm and numerous urban and regeneration projects. We act for a mix of public and private sector clients - including many large national clients such as Network Rail, Highways England, GSK, Annington, Taylor Wimpey and the Forestry Commission.

We are looking for a NQ to join Eversheds Sutherland planning team in Cardiff and to work with the existing Principal Associate and two Associates.

Key responsibilities:

You will be based in our Cardiff office and will participate in the full range of work undertaken by the Cardiff Planning Team. You will assist other members of the team in acting on a wide range of matters.

You will form an integral part of an energetic team of specialists within a challenging and rewarding area of law. Whilst a supportive and structured approach will be given to supervision, knowledge management and personal development, we expect all our team members to possess a 'can do' approach to their workload.

You will take on a client facing role from the outset; both in assisting others on large complex cases and in running your own caseload.

Skills and experience:
You will possess strong academic ability and excellent communication skills. You will be able to problem solve and work under pressure. You will have superb organisational skills and pay high attention to detail. You will provide a first rate client service both internally and externally.

Key competencies:

You should be a team player, client focused and a good communicator with a strong practical approach to your workload. A commitment to deliver quality service is essential, as is the ability to juggle the demands of a heavy workload.

In addition to the above, Eversheds Sutherland also require awareness and full participation in the Firm's commitment to equality and diversity, the environment and health and safety.
Kee Evans, the Principal Associate who heads the planning team in Cardiff, would encourage all those interested to contact her if they have any queries or would like the opportunity to discuss this position further.
