Clare Humphris

Executive Consultant

Who am I and what can I do for you?

I am an Executive Consultant on the Patent and Trade Mark team based in the Leeds Office. I recruit both Patent and Trade Mark support staff as well as part and fully qualified fee earners across the whole of the UK. I work hard to listen to my clients and candidates and put the two together, matchmaking at it’s finest! I’m not here to find any-one any-job… I really strive to find the right fit and will take the time to understand what is important to you.

The market is ever changing, especially after the pandemic craziness. What I’ve found is that so many of the roles we work on are not necessarily advertised and I have placed countless people with businesses they’d never even thought of! It’s due to our due-diligence and genuinely close relationships with our clients that we can really help find you the right role. So, if you’re ready to move, considering your options, or just being nosey… please do get in touch! I’d love to talk about how we can potentially help you. 

What team are you part of, and what is the best thing about your team?

The Patent and Trade Mark team.  The best thing about my team is their support both from a learning and development perspective but also when I’m (always) hungry and they offer me their snacks. 

5 words that describe me?

Tenacious, outgoing, sarcastic, fun, efficient 

What else should you know about me?

I studied Contemporary Dance at Leeds Beckett University and fell in love with Leeds which is where I found myself searching for a good graduate job where I could work hard and progress. I never had a clue what I wanted to do 'when I grew up'. A few friends worked in Recruitment and I’d heard great things so I did my research… realised the best way to find the right job was by instructing a recruiter(!) called them up and we found the lovely Sacco Mann.

A memorable event, day or memory at Sacco Mann? 

Sacco Mann bring us together for regular events for team successes and our half year and year end celebrations. A couple of standout moments are running around Leeds doing a scavenger hunt in 80’s fancy dress, feeling like royalty at Carlton Towers and a particular favourite was watching the Directors enjoy one too many goes on the ‘Miami Trip’ ride at the 2019 Christmas Party


  • What is your star sign? My star sign is Libra and often Libras are described as compassionate, empathetic and diplomatic, willing to go out of their way to help others. I think those traits lend perfectly to recruitment so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me and let’s work together to find you a new job!
  • Hobbies: I spent my childhood living abroad in Budapest and Abu Dhabi which provided me with an ever-growing wanderlust. I love to travel and after finishing University I spent 5 months exploring South East Asia. When I'm not gallivanting across the globe, I spend time playing Netball, cooking up a storm with my air fryer and having a wine or two with my friends.
