We are working with a global business to expand its in house legal function in the UK. The company operates in offshore industries - offering marine construction, inspection and maintenance services.

You will work broadly across all departments, assisting in legal and contractual matters - including drafting and negotiation of procurement contracts. A sound ability to recognise contractual risk and advise in terms of mitigation is essential.

The position will suit a Legal Counsel with significant commercial contracts experience - exposure to disputes and experience handling them would also be beneficial. A background in construction and/or engineering will be very highly regarded, as will exposure to the marine and/or energy industries - although not absolutely essential.

This role is being recruited on a temporary basis, up to a term of around 12 months. Our client is based in the North East of England although it is likely you will work remotely in the first instance.

This is a really exciting role, operating within a complex and interesting industry. The ideal candidate is likely to have a minimum of around 5 years PQE but candidates who fall outside of this and meet the requirements of the role are still encouraged to apply.

Please get in touch with Sophie Linley or Rachael Mann at Sacco Mann for full details - a position description is available on request.

Sacco Mann are specialist Legal Recruiters recognised as regional experts with a genuine interest in, as well as knowledge of, their marketplace. We are renowned for giving clear and straightforward career advice and true quality of service.

We have thirteen experienced consultants focussing on legal recruitment, encompassing the Commercial, General Practice, Public Sector and In House positions, both permanent and locum. In addition two consultants specialise within the Patents and Trademarks sector.

We feel that much of our success has been due to the fact that we:

- try to accurately guage and understand what both candidates and clients require and indeed that which they are able to offer and then bring the two together
- have a demonstrable knowledge of the marketplace. Fundamentally what you need is not merely someone who can post your CV to a practice, but someone whose strength of contacts within the firms can add value, ensuring that you are given proper consideration
- discuss each role with you thoroughly and get prior clearance before a CV is submitted. This is an extremely important for protecting confidentiality and avoiding duplication
- brief you fully prior to any interviews, ensuring that you know what the role entails and how the interview will be run. We also give you honest interview feedback - if you don't do very well in an interview you can always learn from the experience
- are accessible and return your calls

Why use Sacco Mann?

Principally because we believe that the points outlined above are fundamental. We enjoy recruitment, and we are good at it, because we genuinely enjoy assisting people make positive career moves. We don't shuffle paper because we know our marketplace and are therefore in a position to give reliable, knowledgeable and practical advice.

The vast majority of our applicants and clients are at pains to thank us for the advice and service that we provide and we believe the high level of referral business is a direct result of the fact that lawyers value our input.
