Job Details

We are working with a major professional services firm in Leeds to recruit a Solicitor into the in-house Legal and Regulatory team - to focus primarily on data protection.

This major brand name firm is known for its strong client relationships, built on successful delivery across national and international markets. The firm attracts the best talent and encourages employees to fulfil their potential in an environment where they are valued.

Within the Risk team, you will be working with colleagues around the business to develop and implement policies and procedures and ensure compliance with new legislative and regulatory requirements. You will play an active role in the development and roll-out of data and cyber related risk and compliance initiatives across the firm and advise colleagues in relation to compliance with GDPR and other data protection regulations.

It is likely that you will have strong commercial legal experience, gained in an in house or major law firm environment. Data protection specific experience is not a prerequisite, you will be guided by an experienced team but must have a clear interest in developing expert knowledge in this area.

This role could suit an NQ Solicitor or somebody with up to c. 3 years PQE. However this has been given as a guideline and those who fall outside of this bracket are encouraged to apply.

To hear more about this In-House Solicitor opportunity in Leeds please call Sophie Linley on 0113 236 6711 or another member of the Private Practice team at Sacco Mann.


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.
