Job Details


A standout opportunity has arisen at our client's Wakefield offices - they are on the lookout for Commercial Property Solicitors. There are 2 roles available and therefore candidates with a range of experience levels will be considered. One position will suit a NQ-2 PQE Lawyer, with the other suiting a more experienced applicant.

Uniquely, our client has instructed Sacco Mann on this as also a retrain opportunity and are actively encouraging Solicitors from a Residential Conveyancing background looking to get their foot in the door in the world of Commercial Property to apply today.

The firm

Our client is a well-regarded, regional law firm with extensive reach across West Yorkshire. Their dedicated Commercial Property department has gained an enviable reputation with the wider firm having been established for over 170 years in total. They have gone from strength to strength and are known for their friendly and genuinely supportive work environment with flexible and hybrid working available.

The role

  • You will undertake a range of genuinely high quality transactional work for a range of clients, including nationally and internationally
  • This will include sales and purchases, refinancing, landlord and tenant work and acting for either party
  • You will also be expected to work on acquisition and disposal of development land
  • Your caseload will consist of Commercial Property matters which you will see from start to finish
  • Client care is of the utmost importance to this successful firm and therefore you can expect to be liaising regularly with your clients and updating them at each stage of their case
  • From time to time, you can expect to be participating in wider firm development and networking to encourage referrals and repeat business

The ideal candidate

  • Uniquely, the firm are highly flexible and are encouraging applications from Commercial Property Solicitors or Residential Conveyancers including Chartered Legal Executives and Licensed Conveyancers
  • You will be a confident communicator with excellent client care skills
  • All references to PQE are simply given as a guide and we of course welcome applications from candidates who fall outside of the stipulated range but have the relevant skills.

How to apply

If you are interested in discussing this role further or wish to apply to it, then please contact Sophie Linley at Sacco Mann on 0113 236 6711 or ask to speak to another member of the Private Practice team.


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.
