Job Details

This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual with Commercial legal experience to join the well established legal team of a Teesside based business, offering a range of services across the energy sector. Our client is a significant and rapidly growing business in the North East, with strong financial backing, currently pushing ahead with international expansion.

You will join a great in house legal team, which is an influential and prominent service provider to the business, as Legal Counsel. You will carry a workload largely focused on commercial contracts and there is great opportunity for development, with plenty of scope to pick up matters of increasing complexity under the supervision and guidance of an expert team.

You could be a qualified Solicitor or Legal Executive, or you may be an experienced Paralegal or Contracts Manager - there is a wide range of qualifications within the team and the key requirement is a minimum of around one years' experience advising on commercial legal matters (this could be Commercial Contracts, Corporate or Commercial Litigation for example - full support and training will be given). A law degree or equivalent is also required. Experience may have been gained either in-house or in private practice.

The business is very flexible with working arrangements and, whilst more time in the office will be required to get up to speed initially, ultimately you can expect to work from home 3 or 4 days per week. There is also flexibility around working hours and applicants who would prefer to work part time will also be considered.

How to Apply

For a confidential conversation about this in house legal role in Teesside / North East, please get in touch with Sophie Linley at Sacco Mann on 0113 236 6711.


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

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.
