Pensions NQ Lawyer - Liverpool
Contrary to popular belief, the world of Pensions is not just inhabited by black letter law purists, bookworms and odd balls.
I mean I'm not saying they don't exist just that it is no different to other areas of law and if one thing that can be said about this team and firm - they make Pensions cool.
How? Well, partly because the reality of being a pensions lawyer is that the work you do is multi-faceted and dynamic. In a sense it has to be. Pensions are a key part of people's lives and increasingly so in the context of work place pensions. It is a key political issue so as governments and policies change so too must Pensions lawyers, predict, adapt and change.
So what then does a role in Pensions offer. Firstly, a niche. Not just a random one that is so specialised it will be superfluous in a years time but one that will stand the test of time and remain a centrepiece for large firms. Secondly (and I admit you have to like this side of things) a real technical element that demands a deep understanding of political and legal matters.
Our client is an international practice and real leader in this space so you will get to work with one of the best and in turn some of the highest quality of work.
They are looking for an ambitious junior lawyer ideally at NQ level. This could be someone just qualified (not necessarily into pensions) or about to qualify in 2017. You may in turn never have done Pensions in your training contract but will likely have had exposure to areas such as regulatory, commercial contracts, employment, share schemes or tax - something that has sparked your desire to operate in a technical area.
First and foremost you will need to have an appetite to work in Pensions. Ultimately you will be asked that question - this is a great long term move and will be a career for life but as such it will be viewed that way.
