Job Details

This is an unmissable role for an Employment Solicitor to join an award-winning, nationally regarded firm as part of a close-knit busy team in Leeds. This is a fantastic opportunity to leverage your existing Employment Law experience and apply it to clients operating in the fascinating and everchanging sectors of charities and education.

Our client, a well-known, long-established law firm, has an opening for an experienced and talented Employment Solicitor to join the team in Leeds. The firm is highly-regarded across the UK and has received recognition from bodies such as the Legal 500 and Chambers for providing an excellent service.

The team's first-rate reputation lends itself to high-quality work and an impressive client base across Charities and Education. Joining this successful team, you will have access to this client base and will be acting on behalf of charities, universities, social enterprises and more; and will be both assisting senior team members with matters as well as handling your own caseload.

The work is equally as diverse and high-calibre, with files sometimes reaching over £100million in value. Both contentious and non-contentious matters, including employment contracts, policies and handbooks, settlement agreements, restructuring, redundancies, discriminations, TUPE and Tribunal work could all feature in your caseload. Existing sectoral experience would be advantageous but is not a prerequisite, you must however be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in these areas and the opportunity to progress you career acting for clients within them.

The successful candidate should be between NQ level and 3 years' PQE in Employment Law, however, this level of experience has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this level but who have prior experience in HR law, litigation or similar roles.

How to Apply:
Having been established for over 20 years, we are experts in legal recruitment. Our strength derives from the fact that we are well-known, well-respected and have developed long-standing bonds with both our clients and candidates, and have become an authority on all aspects of legal recruitment. To hear more, please contact Sophie Linley or another member of the private practice team at Sacco Mann.


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.
