Job Details

A major law firm is looking for a high calibre Planning Solicitor to join its team based in Leeds city centre. Leeds is the firm's Planning 'hub' and manages all Planning matters nationally across a diverse client base of both public and private sector clients.

This is a busy, high performing legal team which offers a nice balance of 'business as usual' work supporting a top flight property team as well as significant strategic planning matters. You will work on a top-quality caseload, advising on matters in relation to all aspects of planning law including highways and compulsory acquisition, major retail, mixed use and office developments, housing developments, energy & waste and largescale infrastructure projects. This is a first-class opportunity for an ambitious solicitor to work with a team we rate highly, which will be fully invested in your professional development.

The team is very open minded about what level this roles is recruited at and is happy to consider applicants with anything from around 2 years PQE, right through to applicants with considerably more experience. The key thing is that you are team spirited, have an ambition to succeed and a passion for this area of law.

Whilst a phased return to office working is under way, longer term home working will be supported with good systems in place to support this.

If you are a Planning Solicitor and you would like to apply for this role then please contact Rachael Mann, Sophie Linley or another member of the Private Practice Team at Sacco Mann. 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.
