Job Details

This role offers significant career opportunity to a Pensions Solicitor looking to take on a senior role within the Leeds office of an impressive global law firm.

Joining this highly regarded team, you will work on a national basis but be based in the Leeds office so that you can assist with the delivery of support and supervision to more junior lawyers. This, together with the volume and quality of work that the undertake makes this an appealing opportunity for those who are perhaps wanting to move from London for lifestyle reasons but are worried about the impact this could have on their work life.

The Role

  • From day one you will be dealing with an array of tasks, this will include involving corporate support work, advising scheme trustees, and advising corporates. On top of this you will have the opportunity to branch out into pension litigation if you wish.
  • The role delivers a diverse work environment and gives you the ability to gain experience in all aspects quickly whether related to the technical aspects of the role or wider commercial aspects.
  • You will be working as a part of a team that performs highly and is very cohesive.
  • It would be ideal if you have already had experience of supporting and developing more junior colleagues. However, if that's something that you are looking to get exposure in, and you have sufficient experience to be able to do so they will support you in developing this still. Whilst this firm deliver great technical training, they also provide fabulous skills-based support.

The Candidate

Let's face it, there aren't many Pensions Solicitors around, this practice is alive to that and happy to be open minded about the level that they recruit at, and structure the role and responsibilities to suit.

You could be a senior lawyer already fully confident with your client, technical and team leadership skills, or someone at the earlier stages of your career but looking to push yourself on and position yourself within a team where there will be a clear route to progression. To get the right person they will be as flexible as they can be, but you will need a minimum of 3 or 4 years solid practical experience.

In terms of personality, whilst undeniably a technical area of law and they are looking for someone who can demonstrate a real eye for detail, they are also looking for someone who has a team approach, can see things from a commercial perspective and has a hunger to continue their development. This practice will encourage you to be the best you can possibly be, they provide a fast paced but flexible and supportive environment and are know for their down to earth and friendly approach.


  • The opportunity to work at a leading law firm, with an amazing range of clients and complex work.
  • A chance to develop yourself and your career with the fantastic training and support on offer along with a vast array of work.
  • Highly competitive salary and benefits package.
  • Hybrid and flexible working.
  • If you are relocating assistance will be considered with this.
