Job Details

International plc and energy giant with large In-house legal team, integral to the group, requires an additional solicitor following a strategic re org and the promotion of one its existing lawyers.

Sacco Mann has been a proud partner of the group over the years and has witnessed significant upward mobility and career development of a number of the lawyers we have placed. Many remain and play a significant role in the new world. This is NOT a reactive commercial-contracts factory but a strategic and highly commercial function within an international energy pioneer.

The role is likely to suit someone who has some commercial training or experience from one of the larger firms or reputable in-house teams, although your commercial mindset and approach is much, much more important. You're likely to have some PQE, but training will be taken into consideration and NQ's with demonstrable acumen are very welcome to apply.

Broadly, this is a client facing role and requires someone with a confidence and desire to be visible, pragmatic and interested in business. An interest in or experience of energy would be an advantage but is not essential. The group has some truly world leading projects in relation to EV's, decarbonisation, renewable certification, energy trading and the legal department are at the forefront of these negotiations, working within a team of high calibre lawyers. It's an opportunity for you to make a difference!

It's a great first step into Industry or equally suits someone who feels they are currently In-house but within a team where interaction with the business is slightly limited.

The role is based in north Yorkshire but agile working is very much in play and we'd expect the split with home working to be even. Salary is likely to be in the region of mid £50's and the benefits package is comprehensive. Those looking for a career in house or looking to make a difference to the planet would benefit from the commercial exposure you'd enjoy with this group, who are at the forefront of the energy revolution.

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
