Full time

An exciting new role has arisen with a major UK law firm who are looking to recruit an Employment lawyer to join their Leeds City Centre office.

The firm is known for working with some of the world's most ambitious and rapidly growing businesses and has a network of offices working together as one national team, meaning there is great opportunity for development and growth with your career. The firm has an outstanding reputation and is an 'Employer of Choice'.

The Role:

The department largely handles complex project and advisory work rather than targeting high volume tribunal work. You will get the opportunity to support the partners with their work, whilst also handling your own matters. This way of working will ensure that your development will be fast tracked and working with a number of partners will ensure that you have exposure to different styles and ways of working. There are no glass ceilings within this practice and they will progress you at the pace that's appropriate for you.

The team in Leeds is newly formed but is developing really quickly and they are winning household name clients on a daily basis. Their clients are largely from the private sector and cut across many sectors , including media, retailers, transportation, to name a few.

The Candidate:

Ideally, you will have between 1 and 4 years post qualification experience. However, the firm is happy to offer some flexibility on this, so if your experience falls closely outside of this range then please don't hesitate to apply if you think you should be considered.

It's important that you are positive about getting involved in client training and seminars and have a polished range of communication skills as this role requires lots of client contact.

A strong background of experience within employment law is essential for this role and you will have a real motivation to continue developing your skills and excelling in your career.

Advocacy skills are not essential however if you are interested in advocacy you will of course have the opportunity to undertake this.

Overall, you will be keen to become a part of a solid team working in a vibrant environment.


A competitive salary with full benefits is on offer for the successful candidate.

How to Apply:

If you would like to apply for this role then please contact Rachael Mann or another member of the Private Practice team at Sacco Mann.
