Job Details

We're working with one of our long-standing clients based in central Manchester that are looking for a Head of Employment.

This is a firm that have experienced a period of organic and strategic growth over the last few years and have taken on some impressive partners to bolster their offering. Employment is a key growth area for them so whilst there is already a team there, this is an opportunity for an experienced Employment solicitor to make a real difference and become a key figure within the firm.

The client base spans North West clients, national clients as well as some international clients so experience advising various size businesses across various sectors will be beneficial. There isn't a particular niche in regard to the work so they're ideally looking for someone experienced in both contentious and non-contentious work.

You will ideally have been within a senior position before however, this doesn't need to have been a Head of position. Someone with experience networking and building strong relationships with clients is important and the ability to mentor more junior members of staff will be beneficial.

This is an excellent and unique opportunity in the legal market to join a firm as a Head of Employment where you can make a genuine difference. It will suit those that want to be able to make decisions as to the development of the Employment offering but also one where you will be a key figure within the wider firm and assist in the continued growth during this exciting time.

Whilst the firm has offices in Manchester, there is a considerable amount of flexibility whether this be agile or home working as this is something they already have in place.

This is a role we're working on exclusively so if you'd like to discuss this Head of Employment opportunity on a confidential basis in more detail please call Amy Haycocks at Sacco Mann on 0161 871 4754 or email


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.
