Job Details

Are you a qualified solicitor with any exposure or (interest in) financial services or financial services products and contemplating a move In-house?

My client is one of the most flexible and employee-orientated organisations with roots firmly established in Yorkshire and is looking to recruit an additional lawyer into their highly regarded and substantial In-house team as a result of a number of genuinely exciting projects and changes in the landscape.

Specific experience is secondary, but the work will prove fairly technical and as such, someone with a great eye for detail and inquisitive/problem solving skills is most likely suited. Obviously, experience of saving, investments or mortgages is ideal, though there are elements of commercial and real estate litigation, so this role is open to contentious lawyers.

Career development and employee welfare are very much a part of this group's DNA, so please get in touch if the sector appeals and you can get into Leeds a day or so a week - though three is massive flexibility around hours and arrangements. Salary is commensurate to experience, but would envisage this suiting someone up to c5 years PQE and also includes a significant benefits package.

For a confidential conversation, please contact or call DL 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.
