With a clear path to Partnership, a market-leading package and plenty of flexibility, this is an unrivalled opportunity to join this Pensions team at an exciting time of growth.

The Firm:

You will join a global, Top 20 law firm consistently recognised for its innovative and forward-thinking approach. The firm has a strong focus on developed and emerging markets and boasts an impressive track record in many sectors, including transport, energy, and finance.

You will be part of a close-knit team and benefit from a refreshing and inclusive culture. Individuals are encouraged to be just that, individual - you will be supported and encouraged to have your ideas heard, meaning you will influence key decisions across the team and wider firm.

The Role:

You will join a leading Pensions team as a Senior Associate in the firm's Manchester office.

Given the flow of work within the team, you can focus on advisory or litigation work - the opportunity moulds around the individual, with the flexibility to specialise. Either way, you will be acting for an impressive client base that includes PLCs and trustees nationally and internationally.

You will work closely with the cross-office team to continue to grow the firm's Pension offering whilst focusing on the development of the Manchester team. In addition, you will be actively involved in recruiting and mentoring junior lawyers as the team looks to realise its ambitious expansion plans over the next 5 - 10 years.

This opportunity comes with realistic and transparent partnership prospects within 12 - 18 months. You will also receive a salary at the top end of the market, an impressive benefits & bonus package, and plenty of flexibility.
