Job Details

Following the successful sale of part of its non-core business, my client is looking to recruit potentially x2 commercial lawyers into the integral In-house legal function. The "New" group is well placed to capitalise on the imminent government initiative encouraging network and broadband growth and this organisation stands to be a pioneering player in the new world.

We'd be keen to speak to lawyers with an interest in technology and some PQE in contracts law, especially B2C, however this employer has form and the infrastructure in place to help develop those from a more left-field non-contentious commercial background.

Whilst remote working is likely to form the bias of your working week, there will be a need to travel to their offices in Hull perhaps a couple of times per week from a stakeholder engagement perspective and given the pace that the projects will likely run at once the initiative catches fire.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a lawyer looking to make their first move in-house, to become involved in an interesting and high-profile programme which will offer experience that will definitely benefit their later careers.

Salary is likely to be in the region of up to £55 + benefits. For a confidential conversation, please contact or call on 0113 467 9789.


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.
