Job Details

A down-to-earth Yorkshire firm has an outstanding opportunity for a claimant employment solicitor to join the team in its Leeds City Centre office. Working closely with Trade Unions, you will be exposed to a broad range of claimant employment matters and will enjoy a great work/life balance.

Our client is a friendly and approachable firm with offices across the region and provides services to a range of both private and union clients.

You will be handling a real mix of matters for these clients, including both contentious and non-contentious work, meaning you can really build your skills as a fully-rounded employment solicitor.

You can take on a portfolio of clients of your own and will have plenty of client contact, allowing you to build lasting relationships and improve your business development skills.

The firm is ideally looking for candidates who possess the following attributes:
- Fully qualified solicitor with ideally 2-5 years' PQE
- Experience handling a range of claimant employment matters
- Ability to run with a caseload from day one with some supervision

The practice boasts a friendly, close-knit environment and a great work/life balance, making this a fantastic opportunity to pick up good quality work without sacrificing your life outside the office.

To find out more, either apply for the role or contact Andy Purdy or another member of the Private Practice team.
Alternatively, if you know of someone who may be suitable, 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.
