Job Details

Well established and highly successful property development business is seeking to expand its legal department by recruit a pragmatic and commercially minded In-house property generalist, to help assist them with the next phase of their growth. The business is privately owned with a development pipeline value in excess of £5billion.

The new appointment is prompted by a growing pipeline of exciting new schemes primarily in the residential and commercial sectors and the successful candidate will report into the Head of Legal providing ongoing support across a diverse range of legal queries which could cover anything from; investigating titles, heads of terms, non-disclosure/exclusivity agreements to advising on insurance documentation, portfolio management and some funding related matters and various property acquisition and disposal work.

The ideal candidate is likely to have at least a couple of years PQE and a good grounding in development, although this is not a pure development role. More importantly, you'll be commercially aware, have an approachable and positive and confident attitude.

The right candidate will have high levels of responsibility and you'll thrive in the day to day interaction with senior stakeholders and management, in a fast paced, exciting and challenging environment.

The role is largely office based in the Leeds area and will also require site visits as required. The role comes with a highly attractive package which includes competitive salary, car allowance, bonus scheme and family medical insurance.

This is a brand new role within a hugely successful and stable organisation which is equally employee orientated. You'll be able to work autonomously but under the mentoring of an experienced and supportive legal counsel, enjoying unprecedented exposure to high level management decision makers and legal issues.

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
