One of the UK's leading regional law firms is looking to recruit a family solicitor to join its Leeds office and become part of a highly regarded national team. This firm is proud to have been recognised over the past few years, being awarded Best Companies star status on a number of occasions and featured in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for. They are also recognised for their efforts to improve work place engagement, leadership, personal growth, wellbeing, team working and their impact on society.

The suitable candidate will have experience of general matrimonial work to include divorce, financial remedy, private children matters, and drafting of nuptial, cohabitation and separation agreements. You will have a strong ancillary relief background, and experience of Cohabitation/TOLATA disputes is desirable. You will have good technical knowledge and a strong desire to get involved in business development and assisting in the expansion of this growing team.

Our client seeks an adaptable, friendly and down to earth individual who can manage an array of clients and provide first class client service. You will have strong commercial awareness and understand the Leeds market. Someone who is a Resolution member and ideally prepared to work towards Specialist Resolution Accreditation would appeal to this firm. As would someone who is prepared to show persistence in novel market conditions.

Our client envisages that a suitable candidate for this role will be 2-6 years PQE, however, this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant knowledge/experience.

Our consultants are experts in legal recruitment, with our strength deriving from the simple fact that we are well-known, well-respected and have developed long-standing bonds with both our clients and candidates. Having been established in the sector for over two decades, we have become an authority on all aspects of legal recruitment, allowing us be the first line of the process for our clients. To hear more about this role please contact Rachel Birkinshaw another member of our private practice team.

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

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.
