Job Details

Sacco Mann is proud to be working exclusively and in partnership with a Private Equity-backed, forward thinking, ambitious and leading data, analytics and insight company with global interests.

Headquartered in London but with prestigious offices in Leeds, the group has experienced 20% organic growth in the last financial year - this year, they are on track to deliver +30% growth. As such, the group now needs to recruit a commercial lawyer to assist the General Counsel with the next phase of their journey, which may result in this person ultimately becoming the current GC's successor.

Opportunities such as this in the North are especially rare and the role will be of particular interest to commercial lawyers who have experience of advising and working within the areas of Data Protection/GDPR, IT Contracts, Intellectual Property and Contracts for the Supply of Goods and Services.

It's a greenfield site and offers huge potential with a business which will change and grow drastically over the course of the next five years, offering the successful candidate huge diversity and commercial exposure across a range of legal content.

They are a highly flexible employer and would anticipate minimal office presenteeism (c2-3 days a month) though there is equally an option should you feel more comfortable working in an office environment - It's up to you.

Salary is likely to be in the region of £70k-£75k + benefits and we'd anticipate this person having at least 3 years PQE in commercial law with interest in DP as well as a confident and robust personality.

For a confidential discussion, please contact or call his 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.
