We strive to spend more time looking at our clients’ world than inwards at ours.  That’s what makes our approach different.

We take the same approach with our colleagues: we pride ourselves on fostering a workplace where everyone is encouraged to speak up, share ideas, seek advice and where ability and commitment is recognised by rapid progression. 

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.  

Whatever your specialism, and whether you’re a lawyer or a business services professional, a career at CMS gives you huge scope to carve out a brilliant career as you help us, and our clients, to face the future with confidence.
