Gateley Hamer
Join our Infrastructure Development Team
(London, Guildford, Reading, Birmingham, Nottingham, Leeds or Manchester)

Gateley Hamer has grown considerably over recent years to develop three teams focusing on Utilities, Compulsory Purchase and Compensation, and Infrastructure Development.
The Infrastructure Development team was only established earlier this year and we are already advising clients in relation to eight DCOs and two TWAOs.  The team acts for a wide range of clients including private promoters of infrastructure schemes, public bodies promoting rail and road schemes, and parties affected by infrastructure projects.

The successful candidate(s) will be joining an established and highly experienced team that will provide the right individual with the support to successfully develop their career in this specialist sector which is facing unprecedented demand.

We are seeking driven individuals who are ‘self-starters’; the ability to work confidently within a project team and to represent or lead the land workstream for a project is essential.
