Experience level: 5 years + Term: Permanent Working hours: Full-time Team: Pensions Location: Newcastle, Leeds, Bristol, Southampton
With one of the largest Pensions Team in the UK, a national client base and reputation to match, it's easy to see how our pensions lawyers provide a full pensions law advice service to both employers and pension scheme trustees. Working with some of the UK’s largest companies and schemes, across a range of sectors, as well as public service and voluntary organisations, their work encompasses the full range of legal advice in relation to UK pension schemes from day-to-day benefit queries and member complaints to large scale restructuring and liability management projects.
Just because we're big, though, doesn't mean we've lost our personal touch. It’s the quality and commerciality of our service, our industry insight and the talent and passion of our people that engages our clients, and they love what we do. It also means that our people are engaged, and excited about the opportunities for growth and development in our business – there's no doubt that it's an exciting place to be.
The team led by Partner, Martin Poore, has an exciting opportunity for a Managing Associate to join them to strengthen their national offering and whilst the majority of the Pensions team are based across our Newcastle and Leeds offices, for the right person this self-supporting role could be based from either our Bristol or Southampton locations, providing a genuine chance to join a highly motivated and supportive team with a wealth of relevant experience.
What will you be doing?
You'll contribute to the growth and success of the business by developing the reputation/brand of the firm, taking a proactive role in building and maintaining client relationships, both in terms of revenue growth and profitability from new and existing clients. You'll play an important role in helping us to further develop our local market share, running transactions in their entirety from the outset, supervising and mentoring others in the team to deliver those transactions for our clients. As a key member of the team you'll be involved in business development activities, influence strategy for the team as well as helping others to develop in this area.
What does the ideal candidate look like?
You'll be a technically proficient Pensions lawyer who's had extensive exposure to quality pensions work from a large regional or city firm who can add value through first class technical, commercial advice and delivering business and sector insight. You'll have strong internal and external networking skills and use these effectively to generate work in your own right. You'll also, ideally, have experience of supervising the technical work of others and enjoy devoting dedicated time to share your expertise through coaching and mentoring.
So what makes it so great to work here?
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a close-knit and supportive team where you can learn from true leaders in their field and build your experience with access to great quality work and great clients. Supported by a collegiate approach, and firm wide commitment to lawyer development there are fewer better places to start your career as a qualified lawyer or continue your career as a lawyer.
And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.
