Job Details

A great opportunity has arisen for a Risk and Compliance Solicitor to join an award-winning, cutting-edge firm in Leeds.

Working as part of this small team in a rapidly growing law firm you will deliver a pro-active approach identifying and managing risk, as well as highlighting opportunities for improvement and areas of good practice. It is an exciting time to join this firm which whilst is still only a small to medium firm can offer opportunities on a par with leading and long-established national firms.

Supporting the Quality and Client Care Director you will assist with the following;

  • Preparation of compliance updates for the business
  • Maintaining and updating relevant regulatory registers
  • Preparation of regulatory policies
  • Preparation of reports relating to improvement plans
  • Managing audit processes
  • Devising and providing regulatory based guidance internally
  • Maintaining the complaints register and collation of complaints data
  • Providing support in relation to internal knowledge base for claims work
  • Assisting with the preparation and development of training materials for the legal teams

Our client is looking for an experienced solicitor around 3-6years PQE, who has experience of working in a busy contentious environment. This is essential for the role. Ideally you will have already gained experience in a legal risk and compliance team, from an SRA and/or FCA perspective, in a commercial/ litigation context with the goal to move into a non-fee earning role.

Having been established for over 20 years, we are experts in legal recruitment. Our strength derives from the fact that we are well-known, well-respected and have developed long-standing bonds with both our clients and candidates and have become an authority on all aspects of legal recruitment. To hear more, please contact Rachel Birkinshaw 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.
