Job Details

This international engineering consultancy is looking to recruit an experienced in house Solicitor to join it's legal team in Newcastle Upon Tyne. This is a global, award winning business operating across civil and structural engineering, sustainability and building services.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a well established legal team which advises across the full spectrum of internal legal matters. In particular, this role will work closely with the Legal Director to assist with the review and management of the contractual arrangements on a variety of large scale projects. You will also have the opportunity to get involved in some contentious matters and support in the supervision and mentoring of more junior team members.

The ideal applicant will bring strong commercial contracts experience, ideally in the context of construction and/or engineering projects, and is likely to have a minimum of 4 years PQE, potentially much more. The business is considering a range of levels for this appointment and has scope to recruit at a more senior level.

A full position description and details around salary etc. are available on request - please get in touch with Sophie Linley at Sacco Mann for a no obligations chat on 0113 236 6711.

All references to PQE are given as a guide only and we are of course happy to accept applications from those who fall outside of the indicated bracket but who possess the relevant skills and knowledge to be successful in the role.


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.
