Job Details

A leading firm in the North of England is looking for a Senior Charity Law Solicitor to join its Manchester office.

This respected law firm is known for its leading charity legal practice and acts for the country's largest charities, academics and social housing sectors, not for profits, CICs and enterprises. The firm's long-standing client base has meant the firm is incredibly well connected and so the firm encourages its staff to use its position in the market to support local voluntary organisations and build a network of contacts in the community.

You will take over from the firm's senior partner who will be able to ensure the smooth transition of existing clients and connections. This is an important hire for the firm and the successful charity law solicitor will be fully supported by executives and offered the opportunity to take ownership and progress.

The role will focus on the commercial and governance aspects of charity law. This includes establishing and incorporating charities, advising on the disposal of land and release of the prohibition on expending proceeds for a religious charity, advising on the exploitation of a charity's substantial archive, advising charitable foundations established by larger businesses, advising on serious incidents, writing off of intragroup balances, transfers of businesses and activities to charities and non-charities.

The Senior Charity Law Solicitor will work closely with the firm's employment, property and trust lawyers where necessary to collaborate and develop the team's charity client base and offer the best full-ranging service possible. This cross-departmental function is one of many initiatives that help cultivate a close-knit and friendly working culture that is admired across the industry.

We are the preferred recruitment supplier to our client and have placed a vast number of key Partners with them which has assisted them with their remarkable growth. This allows us to give you clear insight in to the direction of travel that the firm are in, the culture and opportunity for progression. Worth noting that they offer significant flexibility with regards to working from home if this is important to you.

If you are interested in this role, please submit your CV below or contact James Barker @ Sacco Mann on 0161 831 6890.

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.
