Job Details

Are you a UK qualified construction disputes solicitor with a desire to work In-house for a progressive and ambitious international organisation? Do you feel confident to work independently, taking ownership of your own projects and caseload, liaising with contacts and senior stakeholders on a daily basis? Are you able to work from their prestigious offices (either Manchester or (preferably) Leeds) two days per week? If so, please read on…….

This is a brand new opportunity for a qualified disputes lawyer to join an established and highly regarded In-house legal team, working for a global player in the engineering consultancy space. Ideally, you'll have at least 2 years PQE gained in construction disputes - candidates with Professional Indemnity experience are especially welcome to apply.

The work and projects are of an exceptional quality, and this is a truly commercial position where you will be immersed in significant projects in an environment alive with innovation and possibility. Those candidates with solid legal skills and a creative mind will flourish and much of this role involves education and advice. You'll be encouraged to use your critical thinking and emotional intelligence to help solve legal and commercial problems, as a member of the integral legal team.

The role offers a competitive salary inline with lawyers with 2-7 years PQE in a relevant discipline. There is a car allowance and discretionary bonus, along with healthcare and a generous pension contribution.

You'll be working alongside lawyers with a stellar pedigree and profile, dealing in excellent quality of work where work life balance is tangible. If you are currently considering a move from the restrictions of a law firm environment, these roles come along infrequently. Equally, if you are currently In-house and are looking to explore the next stage in your career, this may well offer you a progressive step in terms of autonomy, quality of work and independent commercial accountability and responsibility.

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.
