Sacco Mann is working alongside a FTSE 100 listed company and a leading UK house builder serving local communities across the UK and delivering around 10,000 homes a year. Their established and highly regarded In-house legal team has a rare opportunity for a Litigation Solicitor to complement the team on a hybrid basis from their HQ in York.

This is a pivotal position and you'll collaboratively work with the Group Director of Legal Services, MDs, customer care teams and others to mitigate the chances of litigation including the provision of training and Group instructions.
