About CMS
CMS is a Future Facing firm. With 75 offices in 43 countries and 4,800+ lawyers worldwide, we combine deep sector understanding with a global overview, giving us the ability not only to see what's coming, but to shape it.

CMS is well equipped to help our clients face the future with confidence. We are driven by technology and readily embrace the possibilities it opens up for developing new and better ways of delivering legal services. Our bold approach to a changing future ensures that we nurture our employees and recruit top talent.

About the RoleWant to be a part of the revolutionising of legal service delivery in Scotland? Interested in gaining the benefit of time in-house without losing the technical edge of private practice? CMS are creating a new proposition for key clients, working with flagship Scottish businesses and fast-growing disruptors.

The role offers the chance to work within a new team, who will be seconded regularly and on a strategic basis to key clients. You will be able to develop strong commercial and client facing skills, work on new service delivery models and gain a significant commercial perspective.

Prior to secondment opportunities, you will receive full training and integration within the relevant practice group team, allowing you to integrate with the client and then return back to CMS in between or at the end of secondments. We are looking for lawyers based in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen or elsewhere in Scotland with some travel flexibility.

About YouIf you are looking to gain greater client exposure, work with some of the most innovative Scottish businesses and evolve a new model of legal service delivery, then get in touch.

We are particularly looking for lawyers with good commercial contracts experience. This can come from a variety of practice areas, for example, corporate or within teams working on commercial contracts in industry focussed teams, such as technology, media, telecoms, energy, projects and infrastructure.

We would also be interested in those with in-house experience.

We are looking for a range of experience levels, from NQ to Senior Associate.

Equal Opportunities
At CMS, a next-generation mindset is woven into all we do. We're diverse, supportive and inclusive, embracing our corporate social responsibility and creating a culture of sustainability in which every one of our people, whatever their background, can maximise their potential and thrive.
