NQ Pensions Solicitor, Newcastle
Pensions roles don't come up very often but here is a great role for either a newly qualified or junior pensions solicitor to join the Newcastle office of this leading national firm.
The firms has a considerable pensions team nationally, and they work very cohesively as a national team, with a higher concentration of lawyers in the Leeds and Newcastle offices, and they work with some of the UK's largest companies and pension providers, alongside public sector and charitable clients, with scheme membership numbers from small right up to tens of thousands.
The spread of work is interesting by the standards of any pensions team. The team deals with everything from complex high value scheme mergers, restructures and liability management projects down to day-to-day advice, pension benefit queries and member complaints. Unlike a number of other pensions teams, the bulk of the work is stand-alone pensions work as opposed to corporate support work, which opens up the client relationship management opportunities.
The team prides itself on support, mentoring and ongoing training, so the successful recruit can be assured that they will have their own mentor within the team to ensure that they gain exposure to a wide variety of work and have client development opportunities opened up to them, and monitor a sensible level of caseload for their level of experience.
You will be an NQ solicitor with a Pensions seat or a qualified solicitor with up to 2 years PQE. You will have a sharp mind and a willingness to get into the details and be prepared to keep up to date and change with the ever-changing landscape of pensions legislation and regulations in the UK.
