Our highly regarded team would love to hear from pensions lawyers looking for first rate experience and training opportunities.

About CMS

CMS is a Future Facing firm. With 75 offices in 43 countries and 4,800+ lawyers worldwide, we combine deep sector understanding with a global overview, giving us the ability not only to see what's coming, but to shape it.

CMS is well equipped to help our clients face the future with confidence. We are driven by technology and readily embrace the possibilities it opens up for developing new and better ways of delivering legal services. Our bold approach to a changing future ensures that we nurture our employees and recruit top talent.

About the Role

We have one of the largest and most highly regarded specialist pensions teams in the UK, with top tier rankings in both Chambers and the Legal 500. Our team currently comprises 19 partners and around 50 other fee earners.
Our award-winning pensions team is experienced in advising trustees and employers on all aspects of defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes. We also have considerable experience advising on group pensions, master trusts, insurance products (including buy-in and buy-out arrangements), longevity products and other structures. Unlike many other pensions practices, we also work on litigation, as this enables us to brief clients in full on any potentially contentious issues and provides a balanced approach to our advice.
This is an exciting opportunity for a pensions associate to join our market leading pensions team. You'll be involved in a wide range of high quality advisory work and you'll receive exceptional training in a supportive and collaborative team.

About You

The ideal candidate will:
- Be a qualified solicitor (or qualifying this summer), with 0 - 2 years PQE
- Be able to demonstrate an interest in, and enthusiasm for, the pensions market
- Have gained excellent relevant experience from a recognised pensions team
- Have a strong academic background
- Have excellent communication skills
- Be able to maintain high levels of accuracy and attention to detail
- Demonstrate an ambition to succeed with a commitment to client relationship management and business development
- Be well organised with effective prioritisation skills

At CMS, a next-generation mindset is woven into all we do. We're diverse, supportive and inclusive, embracing our corporate social responsibility and creating a culture of sustainability in which every one of our people, whatever their background, can maximise their potential and thrive.
