Contracts Coordinator, £32K - £38K p.a. pro rata Permanent, W11

AJ100 Studio requires a Part-time Legal Assistant with Knowledge of Construction Law for New Role

A brand-new opportunity has arisen for a Legal Assistant or Administrator to join an acclaimed Architecture practice as a Contracts Coordinator. Working within a specialist group advising project teams on the terms of appointments and contracts, we are looking for a proactive, diligent individual with a well-rounded understanding of Contract Law and its application to the Built Environment. This is a part-time role for 3 days a week, with the possibility of 4 days a week for versatile candidates with the ability to take on further administration tasks. A rare opportunity to utilise your legal knowledge within an internationally-renowned Design studio with an award-winning, employee-centred working culture and comprehensive benefits – apply now!


As Contracts Coordinator, the successful candidate will implement a critical role, which will increase with importance as it becomes embedded in the company structure – identifying T&Cs to negotiate, assessing areas of risk in project and commercial contexts and liaising with Project Architects to ensure they thoroughly understand the scope of works to improve project delivery. Acting as main point of contact internally and externally, you will communicate with insurers, clients, contractors, and sub-consultants, as well as ensure a consistent flow of up-to-date information to Directors, Architects and bid teams. In addition, the Contracts Coordinator will be responsible for maintaining all statutory documentation, including PI certificates, schedules and developing a matrix system for clarity.


Working within a technically accomplished team, you will be instrumental at bid stage and throughout a project’s delivery by bringing a sharp eye for legal and commercial detail and becoming an in-house authority on the T&Cs of appointments.


To be considered, you must demonstrate relevant Contracts or Construction Law knowledge, either through a related qualification or sustained experience in a Built Environment workplace. Understanding of RIBA work stages is hugely advantageous, but not essential. A dedicated and rigorous work ethic is crucial, as well as the ability to adhere to new systems and quality assurance protocols swiftly.


If you’re legal and contracts-savvy, apply ASAP for your chance to join an influential Architecture firm and diversify your experience as part of a vibrant, creative and celebrated team!


We will do our very best to help you find your ideal job. Our approach is personable and we believe that your job hunting experience should be enjoyable. We look forward to hearing from you.
