Who am I and what can I do for you?

I am a Senior Manager based in our Leeds office. I worked within the Private Practice division and recruit Solicitors into permanent roles across Yorkshire and the East Midlands. I source roles from Newly Qualified level up to Equity Partners and recruit for a range of firms from high street and regional firms through to larger national and international practices.

What else should you know about me?

I finished studying my Law degree however didn’t think a legal career was the best option for me. After researching a number of industries I felt that recruitment matched my skillset and joined Sacco Mann in May 2012. To get me through university I worked for Lloyds Banking Group in a number of roles, including debt collection which was certainly ‘interesting’! Prior to my banking roles I was a full time self-appointed rock god after having played at many of Leeds’ venues.

If I wasn't doing what I am doing now, what alternative career would I choose and why?

I absolutely love cars so it would have to be something involving this. I’m not particularly manual so being a mechanic was never an option! Failing being invited to present Top Gear, I would happily settle for being an Automotive Journalist, being flown around the world to drive the latest exotic car.

Likes: Cars, food and drink, sport (Leeds Rhinos), holidays.

Dislikes: Rain, carrots and those who lack manners.

5 words that describe me: Loyal, sarcastic, enthusiastic, eager, happy

What my Candidates and Clients say...

"They were very understanding about the fact that at the time of applying I was not sure about whether I wanted to leave the firm with which I trained and were more than happy to chat through all of my options... before attending interviews for positions Andy and the rest of the team very helpfully went through what to expect from the process, so I felt very prepared going into the actual interviews. By using Sacco Mann, I have actually ended up accepting a role which I probably would not have applied for on my own but it couldn't be more perfect. "
Trainee Solicitor
"I’ve known Sacco Mann for over 15 years initially as a Candidate and latterly as a client. I have always found them to be professional helpful and diligent every time I deal with one of their team. I am presently working with Andy Purdy on a couple of matters and always find him to be extremely understanding and knowledgeable and it’s great to have him on our side.
Andrew Price (Head of Commercial Property) Milners Law
"I have dealt with other agencies in the past where I have been placed under immense pressure to accept roles that were offered to me even though I had clearly stated I wasn’t comfortable with them. I had been in my old job for 13 years and Andy understood that it was a difficult decision for me to leave and he was extremely supportive and understanding of my circumstances. I am now comfortably settling into my new job and it’s perfect and I owe a massive thank you to Andy and Sacco Mann for making it possible! "
Residential Conveyancer
" Andy Purdy listened very closely to my requirements for a new role and was able to source a number of potential opportunities for me, one of which led to a permanent position. The service was very professional and efficient and in particular I found Andy to be friendly, approachable and a great support and encouragement throughout the entire process. "
Private Client Solicitor
"I have dealt with a number of employment consultants in the past but Andy has been the best! He handled my job search very well by paying attention to my individual requirements. He provided good guidance and was not pushy. He is definitely recommended. "
Licencing Solicitor
"I like working with Sacco Mann. All the Sacco Mann consultants I have dealt with share the same ethos of good communication with both clients and candidates. This gives me much more confidence than I usually have when working with agencies. "
