Are you an Employment solicitor with specific expertise in benefits, rewards and incentives?

This Top 50 Firm is seeking a proactive and knowledgeable Senior Associate (4-10 PQE) to join their leading Employee Benefits team based in their sociable Edinburgh office.

The Firm

A truly standout company in the UK legal landscape, this firm achieves the rare balance of performing the highest quality of work with the best clients, whilst retaining an excellent working culture and work-life balance for its staff.

This innovative Top 50 and multi-award-winning firm has expanded rapidly across the UK in recent years. In part, this is due to their focus and ability to produce results for their prestigious client base. However, it is also due to the significant focus that the management places on hiring the best legal talent, and ensuring staff flourish.

Rarely in firms operating at this level does a culture of approachability and supportiveness permeate from top to bottom. Collaboration is at the heart of the working model, and Partners willingly give up their time to train and mentor more junior team members.

Many of the lawyers have received individual recognition for their expertise, including from the Hot 100 and the Legal 500 Hall of Fame. It is a hotbed for rising stars and the ongoing professional development is a major selling point and one reason why staff stay at the business for such long durations.

Clients range from high net-worth individuals to some of the largest multinational companies operating globally. Staff are exposed to the highest quality work across a range of jurisdictions and are supported to provide an industry-leading service by some of the most highly regarded legal minds in the UK.

If you are an ambitious and motivated professional, who is seeking to work for one of the pre-eminent law firms in the country, this is a truly unparalleled opportunity. You will be able to develop a depth of expertise which could see you ascend to the top of the legal profession in your chosen practice area.
