Role Overview

With the increasing client demand for innovative delivery solutions, the Board of Pinsent Masons tasked one of the five practice groups (Vario Group) with developing and scaling up the firm's managed legal service (MLS) capabilities.  This has led to rapidly expanding existing specialist MLS services, while also developing new solutions which can be deployed to support a larger and more diverse range of common or traditional matters.    

This is a newly created role to support the growth of MLS and provides focus on our ability to mobilise and manage our client facing legal project engagements. MLS focus areas include contracting support, conveyancing, claims management, company secretarial, document review, class actions, among others.

As Senior PMO, you will take the lead in developing and managing our PMO capability, which will support the mobilisation and implementation of our client facing legal projects and services. The role will be a challenging and varied role, which will be at the cutting-edge of change in the legal and law firm sector. The successful candidate will have the ability to understand and assess business and change management needs at project level and will have experience of delivering complex projects working across multiple business functions, teams and geographies/jurisdictions.

  • Working experience of various project delivery methodologies and approaches, e.g. Agile, Waterfall, Scrum, Kanban etc.
  • Demonstrable track record of client-facing project management skills, ideally within transformation programmes.  
  • An understanding law firm financial and performance metrics and the link between effective project/matter management, profitability and delivering value to clients would be beneficial. 
  • Experience of delivering legal services in an ALSP environment would be a bonus.
