Job Details

My client is market leading land management company, specialising in owning and maintaining land on housing developments across the UK. It is a company that engenders loyalty and has a great atmosphere with many experienced and long serving staff. It sets the standards in this niche sector and is now seeking to reshape the industry with an exciting new product and service.

They are looking to appoint a property lawyer who will act for the company in respect of new and existing sites across England and Wales, dealing with your own caseload of matters as well as instructing external solicitors.

The team is small however highly-regarded and integral to the group wide business and the successful candidate will act from instruction to completion, negotiating Agreements and Transfers whilst advising our Sales and Development and Delivery Teams on all matters arising from new sites.

We would envisage this suiting a qualified solicitor with at least 1 years PQE in dealing with site procurement and setup, whilst experience in reviewing and negotiating agreements, transfers, planning documents, S104 Agreements and S38 Agreements would be extremely useful.

It's a great opportunity for a lawyer who is wanting to use their legal skills in a commercial environment, within a group that has tangible growth ambitions but still manages to maintain a personable, family run feel in terms of employee welfare.

Salary will be commensurate to your experience and there is hybrid working, although some office presence in their north east Leeds HQ is important.

For an exploratory and confidential conversation, please contact Steven Shakespeare on 0113 467 9789 who is dealing with this on an exclusive basis, or email 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.
