Job Details

A well-established firm with offices across the East Midlands has an opening for a Family solicitor to lead their team in Lincoln. Having been established in the region for over a century, the firm has a strong client base with much of the work coming through referrals and word of mouth.

The role would suit those who have at least 5 years PQE in Family law and focus on negotiating financial settlements after separation and divorce. The work will be varied and will include the following:

  • Advising clients in areas of divorce and finances.
  • Dealing with ancillary relief cases, including high net worth clients.
  • Drafting Separation, Pre-nuptial, and Co-habitation agreements.
  • Representing clients at Court.
  • Managing files using the Proclaim Case Management System (training will be provided).
  • Assisting other members of the Family Department when required.

As the Head of Department, you will also have an enthusiastic approach to growing client relationships and business development, helping deliver further growth for the practice and also assist with the recruitment and supervision of colleagues in the team.

Flexible working options are available, but the role will require leadership from the front and a physical presence will be needed; this is not a role that can be done completely remotely.

If you are interested in this Head of Department Family Solicitor role, or would like to find out more about the opportunity please contact Jonny Weare at Sacco Mann or another member of our Private Practice team.

If it's early days in considering whether to make a move or not don't worry, we are happy to have a confidential discussion with you to talk about the kind of opportunities that could be open generally and even whether or not it is advisable to move at this stage for you personally.


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.
