Job Details

Procurement Solicitor

Sacco Mann are proud to be working with a top tier Legal 500 recognised Law firm based in Manchester city centre, to recruit a Procurement Solicitor into their successful and growing team.

Our client are ideally looking for an Associate at the 2-4 PQE level to work alongside the Procurement & Projects team underneath two well-regarded Partners in their field.

The ideal candidate will have commercial public procurement experience, but full training can be provided by the firm, so whilst this would be advantageous, it is not essential.

The firm's Manchester office plays a central role in the UK-wide network of offices and is one of the largest and fastest growing law firms in the world. They have a very highly regarded public procurement law team which is ranked for their respectable, pragmatic and risk assessed advice.

In this role, there is a real opportunity to work with international clients, such as insurers, large corporations and public sector bodies covering health and education.

The successful Procurement Solicitor will display legal ability, initiative and confidence in managing a full and varied caseload. Full training will be given to the right candidate looking to become an expert in the growing area of public procurement law.

You will ideally have:

  • Some experience of reviewing and drafting commercial contracts, with some public procurement experience
  • Some experience of drafting procurement documents and running the tender processes
  • The ability to assess commercial and procurement risk in respect of the client
  • Some experience of dealing with procurement challenges for either claimant or defendant
  • Experience of working in procurement with the NHS

Hybrid working is available in this fantastic role. Please note our PQE levels are a guide and all suitable candidates with relevant experience will be considered.

If you have the appropriate commercial procurement experience and would like to apply for this unique role of Procurement Solicitor based in Manchester, please apply below or contact Leona Taylor at Sacco Mann Legal Recruitment on 0161 831 6890.


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.
