Job Details

Are you a Construction Solicitor considering the next phase of your career, or a junior lawyer looking to get into this busy area of law? If so read on....

Our client, a well-placed commercial practice based in Leeds City Centre, are looking for a Construction Lawyer to work within a highly experienced team base across the North of England. They have a strong presence within the sector and undertake both private and public sector work and their reach isn't limited to this region but is both national and international. Many of their clients are employers but they also have a few sizeable contractor clients.

The team advises on all aspects for Construction work and whilst many of their lawyers undertake a combined contentious and non-contentious workload, they are happy to speak to people who focus on either.

The firm are very open in terms of PQE and whilst specific construction law experience would be ideal, particularly if you are a more senior lawyer, they are also happy to consider lawyers with up to 2 years pqe who have an interest in construction law but haven't had the opportunity to practice in this area of law as yet, they would be looking for strong commercial property or commercial litigation experience and really want to understand your interest in this area of law.

Within this growing team you would have plenty of opportunity for client contact, but you would also get strong support in building both your technical and soft skills.

Whilst this role is based in Leeds they are highly flexible and have really embraced flexible / hybrid working. We are finding with blended office and homeworking that there are many Lawyers now considering opportunities that can necessitate a slightly longer commute on their office days, so if Leeds is a stretch but you are still interested please do get in touch.

To find out more or apply for this role contact Rachael Mann or another member of the Private Practice team in our Leeds office.


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.
