Job Details

Sacco Mann is working alongside a highly reputable business established 25 years ago working with regulated advisers to provide a range of award-winning personal pensions for UK and non-UK residents. Innovative technology combined with decades of experience and talented people allows them to lead the industry in providing a powerful pension support. The group has a clear focus on technology and innovation backed by a strong set of values. They now seek to recruit a UK qualified solicitor for a hybrid position based in south Manchester, working on a part time basis (3-4 days).

At the heart of the group is a small, however integral and stable In-house legal team which is looking to recruit a solicitor to work alongside the Head of Legal GC and Co Sec on a range of responsibilities working closely with senior stakeholders across the Group including; taking a lead in commercial contract negotiation across jurisdictions; dealing with multi-jurisdictional legal queries; providing company secretarial assistance and involvement in and supporting business and strategic projects.

You'll be reviewing, negotiating, and amending terms and conditions with third parties (such as financial advisers, discretionary fund managers, etc) as well as reviewing various types of deeds and other types of agreements such as terms and conditions of business and other related literature for the company, including the company website and other systems.

This varied role is likely to suit a qualified solicitor with some PQE in general commercial law (previous in-house experience and/or knowledge of pensions law, trusts or other financial services will be an advantage but is not essential) who is versatile and has good commercial acumen and awareness of the business operations.

The role is based on 3-4 day week, with one day in their offices in south Manchester.

This is a progressive, supportive and personable business with strong moral values and collegiate culture. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with experience. For a confidential conversation, 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.
