Who am I and what can I do for you?

I am a Consultant working within the Paralegal and Chartered Legal Executives department in Leeds. I specialise in the recruitment of Paralegals, Chartered Legal Executives, Licensed Conveyancers, Law Costs Draftsmen and non-qualified fee earners in the North East and North Yorkshire regions. I work with a wide range of firms throughout North Yorkshire and the North East including large top tier commercial practices to small boutique firms. I have close connections with the CILEX Committee Newcastle branch and regularly attend their events. Whatever level in your career if you are looking for market advice or wanting to consider new opportunities within the North East or North Yorkshire region please do not hesitate to get in touch.
 

What else should you know about me?

Having been a country bumpkin all my life and growing up on a farm in Lancashire I moved to Newcastle and completed my Law Exempting degree. Following graduation I was looking for a new city to conquer. Combining my law degree with recruitment at Sacco Mann in Leeds proved to be the perfect combination.

 

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

When I was a little girl I wanted to be a Marine Biologist as I have always had a fascination with Great White sharks. Unfortunately science was never my forte and when I realised this I wanted a career working with children. Although now that nieces and nephews have come along my desire to work with children has been curbed slightly.

Likes: Sport (especially water sports), gin and tonics, dogs, cakes, sweets, trying something new and elderly couples that hold hands in the street.

Dislikes:
Bad manners, polystyrene (the sound goes through me like nails on a chalkboard)

5 words that describe me:
Loyal, supportive, sociable, friendly and gangly

"Fiona recently helped me to secure my dream job and I can honestly say that I would never have managed it without her help and expertise. Fiona has been so helpful and has kept me informed and well prepared at every stage of the process. She is friendly, approachable, professional and brilliant at her job.

Sacco Mann is very professional while remembering that people just out of law school have no idea how to start their careers outside the training contract route. "

"In what was a very stressful time I was reassured by the fact that I always felt they had my best interests at heart. I was assisted by Fiona and I could not fault the service she provided.

I really would recommend them to anyone. "
