Job Details

My client is an international leader in the provision of sustainable solutions supporting the UK's transition to Net Zero and is looking to recruit a UK Qualified solicitor on a fixed term basis of 12 months to cover maternity. Working in their In-house legal team at the HQ near Middlesborough (hybrid working offered), you'll be working for the UK arm of a wider international group, which is focusing on growing its renewables and sustainable urban solutions businesses, as it aims to transform its portfolio towards a greener future.

We are interested in talking to lawyers with some PQE in commercial law/contracts - who will compliment the well established and integral legal team that has a reputation for providing clear, pragmatic and commercially focused legal advice to a broad range of internal clients across the business. Experience or a strong interest in the energy sector is highly desirable and you'll need to have excellent drafting and presentation skills, with excellent attention to detail.

It's a hugely exciting time to join the group and there are many pioneering projects to become involved in which ensure the caseload is varied, challenging and a genuinely interesting proposition for both a junior lawyer, or equally someone more experience and looking to play more of an active hands-on role where there is true traction between the In-house function and the business.

If you have a desire to help make a difference in relation to the development of sustainable energy solutions and would value the opportunity to work in an integral and client facing/influential role within a high-profile legal team- please contact or call his DL.

Salary is likely to be in the region of £60-£70k + Bens and hybrid working.


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.
