Recruitment Consultant

  • Negotiable
  • Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

Sacco Mann is a leading legal and IP recruitment specialist - we have been working in this sector for 27 years and have a long-established prestigious client base. We are now looking to recruit a Recruitment Consultant for our Private Practice team in our Leeds office. Our Private Practice team is a hugely successful and market leading division, with great scope to continue its growth. We are a close knit, well-bonded team that has a collegiate and collaborative approach, a great reputation across the market and an unparalleled set of connections.

About the Recruitment Consultant Role:

  • Join a successful (overproducing) team,
  • There is a 'warm desk' to pick up, in a market where we are already well established with a large, varied client base of law firms - from major international brand names to boutique commercial outfits and high street practices, which makes this a robust market to operate in.
  • Will suit a recruiter with experience in either Legal Recruitment or a similar professional sector recruitment.
  • Focuses on the attraction and placement of legal professionals including Solicitors and Partners in the Private Practice market - working across all areas of legal practice (both commercial and consumer).
  • This is one of our core teams and a marketplace where we have been highly active for over twenty years.
  • We will tailor the role to suit the experience and skill set of the incoming person although it is fair to say that in all respects the focus is on providing a quality service to a lucrative, high demand, candidate led market.
  • £200,000 plus billing levels are very achievable.


  • We are very conscious that personal development should never cease, and we will provide a comprehensive and bespoke training programme to ensure that you have the information, skills and expertise that will allow you to be 'the best version of yourself'.
  • We have in-depth knowledge of our market. We are highly respected by both candidates and clients. People enjoy working with us, they value our opinion and have learnt that they can trust us. This makes our job so much more enjoyable, rewarding and successful.
  • Personal development and career progression is something we focus on, there are no barriers to career progression and progression is entirely based on ability and delivery rather than being time barred or restricted in any way.
  • We do not have a heavily KPI focused working environment - managers truly understand the market you will be working in and will work closely with you to agree a structure and the best way to approach your desk but ultimately - once up and running - you will have a lot of freedom and autonomy to engage with your clients and candidates in the way that works best for you and your desk.
  • We have a blended working from home/working from the office environment and have found that this works really well. Being together as a team sharing information, intelligence, tips, successes and woes is really productive and thoroughly enjoyable, but we also enjoy the ability to work from home and focus on our desks. We envisage this more flexible way of working to be the future for us, a balance that is effective from both a professional and personal perspective.

What sort of values and strengths work well at Sacco Mann?

  • Recruitment requires us to be switched on, thinking, assessing and looking for solutions at all times. We don't work silly hours, but we do work hard in the hours we put in.
  • Self-motivation is critical. We are excellent at providing support, direction, advice, encouragement and empathy - that is readily available throughout the business and the people who are the most successful embrace this and combine this with a personal maturity and responsibility. We give people plenty of autonomy, Legal Recruitment is a field where developing your own style is entirely viable and beneficial, our role is to help you do this.
  • Enthusiasm is also a core attribute, its infectious and this team use that as a way of powering on to extra success.
  • We work in close knit groups, and we genuinely have each other's backs. This is non-negotiable. We proactively support each other, we cover each other's jobs, provide each other with extra market information and intelligence. We all step in to support, help and encourage each other and the result is that we are all individually better placed and better informed and more successful.
  • We treat people like adults and expect them to behave like adults and they do! We have high expectations; we like people who also have high expectations and one of the key roles of the business is to help people achieve their goals. This is also really important going forward, the business is in an exciting position, well established, well respected, well-funded and ambitious.
