Job Details

An Employment Lawyer is required to join our client in York and work on their national, high quality employment law matters. Our client works exclusively with SaccoMann and this is a standout Employment role for so many reasons. Firstly, an excellent bonus scheme is on offer, on top of your salary and secondly extremely flexible working is offered whereby you can work from home four days of the week!

If you are a Solicitor specialising in Employment matters (respondent or claimant) and could commute to York just one day a week, do not miss out on this unique opportunity. Our client is looking to online interview quickly so do not miss out on the chance to apply.

The Role
-From day one you will run your own caseload of claimant employment matters. Our client works closely with five trade unions across a wide variety of sectors and therefore the employment matters are diverse and varied.
-In this role you will form part of a sizeable team working on national matters. The York office consists of a highly approachable and friendly Partner, five solicitors of varying levels of experience and three paralegals who are at hand to support you with your caseload. The larger team also has six other fee earners, based in London.
-In this role you will work from home four days a week but you must be able to commute to York one day a week in the near future but true working flexibility is on offer with this role.
-You will be encouraged to generate your own employment work as well and the reward for this will be an excellent bonus structure of 10% of the fees from work that you bring in.

The Person
-The ideal candidate will have trade union experience, but this is by no means essential and therefore any Solicitors from a claimant or respondent background will be happily considered.
- Ideally our client is looking for a solicitor between 1-4 PQE, however, this is given as a guideline and solicitors falling outside of that PQE range but with the relevant knowledge and experience are encouraged to apply.
-Our client is looking for someone commercially minded who can fee earn totally self-sufficiently given the fact that you will largely be based in the comforts of you own home.

-Excellent bonus structure.
-Great promotion potential to Associate within one year and beyond this Partnership in the future.
-Quality employment caseload across a variety of sectors.

If you would like to apply for this Employment law opportunity or would like to hear more about it, please contact Rachel Birkinshaw at Sacco Mann or ask to speak to another member of the team. Alternatively, if you know of anyone who would be suitable for this role then please let them or us know as we offer a reward for successful referrals. For full terms please see our website.


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.
