Job Details

Do you feel like the time is right for you to lead your own childcare team? We are looking for a senior lawyer or Partner to lead the team within this Legal 500 award winning firm based in York City Centre.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who feels they are ready to progress to the next step in their career, bring the required technical knowledge and the ability to drive the growth of the team further. It may be that you are within an established team and just want to spread your wings and lead a team, or you may be looking to join a firm which has the resource and capacity to really support this area of work.

They could recruit someone at Partner level, it someone who is looking to grow into that role but who needs support in doing so, as they can certainly offer this. Ideally they are looking for someone to have extensive experience in handling a broad range of publicly and privately funded children matters, including care proceedings, to be an accredited member of the Law Society Children's Panel and have experience acting for parents and representing children through their children's guardians. In addition to technical experience they are keen to appoint someone who wants to take on a leadership role, and who gets satisfaction from developing and managing others. There is a lovely team in place and this role is to take into account retirement plans so offers an amazing opportunity for the right person. They realise that this is a challenging role to find someone for and as such are prepared to be as flexible as they possibly can to secure the right person.

The firm has excellent support and structure in place and can really ensure that you get the best out of her career whilst working within a dynamic but supportive environment. There is a lot of flexibility at this firm and they plan to have a mixture of home and office working post pandemic as whilst most don't want to home work 100% of they time they appreciate that many will want to blend home and office work going forward. If however you are someone who prefers being in the office 100% of this time you will certainly have the opportunity to do so.

They are really looking for a Childcare Solicitor with a minimum 8 years PQE, however those who fall outside of this bracket are encouraged to apply, and if you have strong practical experience, good client management skills, and are a great team player with a keen interest in the development of the junior members of the team we'd love to hear from you.

To hear more about this Childcare opportunity please call Rachael Mann on 0113 467 7111 at Saccomann.


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
