England, West Yorkshire
Closing date
19 Dec 2023

Job Details

Sacco Mann is once again working with the UK subsidiary of a NYSE listed global leader in the distribution of PFV and other infrastructure products to the utilities, energy transition, production and transmission sectors. Based just outside of Leeds with Hybrid working offered, there now exists a newly created role of Commercial Solicitor to perform the role of Commercial Manager, reporting into Head of Legal.

The successful candidate does not necessarily need to be a qualified solicitor, but have a successful track record in delivering commercial projects, managing bidding activities (including contract review and due diligence) as well as taking a leading role in managing sub-contractor effort for project deliverables - including supply chain agreements.

This is an autonomous position where you will be given the responsibility and accountability to take ownership for the bids, liaising with key stakeholders, both in the UK and wider European markets.

Candidates with strong project management skills and a background in either construction, projects or commercial law would be welcome to apply. Flexible working would be offered though they have offices in West Yorkshire and Tyneside and some travel will be expected between the two sites as well as occasionally over into mainland Europe.

For a confidential discussion, please contact or call his DL 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.
