Who am I and what can I do for you?

I am one of the founders of Sacco Mann and have been ingrained in Legal Recruitment for more years than I care to remember. Since setting up Sacco Mann in early 1997 we have followed the simple rule of recruiting talent, demanding high quality standards and then empowering our people to deliver a service which surpasses expectations. The result is a business of which we can be justifiably proud. One that is highly regarded, a trusted partner to many of the best firms and companies in the country, and one which is, in itself, robust, profitable and continuing to grow.

Over the years I have combined a modicum of ability with a significant amount of hard work and have built a strong (and, I like to think, good) personal reputation with significant, wide-ranging, contacts. I currently specialise in advising on legal private practice in the North West region, with a particular strength in partner level appointments. My client base ranges from major national firms to well-run town practices, to many of whom I am fortunate to be the sole supplier.

What else should you know about me?

Outside of work, I principally provide banking and transport facilities to two teenage daughters and can be found every other Saturday at the Britannia Stadium, following the phoenix-like rise of the mighty Stoke City.

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

I don't want a Plan B. If I couldn't have the role I have now, I would prepare a CV, apply to Sacco Mann and work my way back up.

Likes: Stoke City Football Club, most sports, decent food, anything to do with the beach and water generally (swimming, diving, boating, falling off windsurfs etc), and I suppose I should say the two teenage daughters.

Dislikes: Not many

Five words that describe me: Not very complicated

What my Candidates and Clients have to say about me...

"John was recommended to me. I knew within 5 minutes he was different from other recruitment consultants I had come across. He considered my needs and motivations carefully, asked intelligent questions, and drew some very astute conclusions. Much to my surprise, he reminded me that one option was to stay where I was - but maybe modify my approach. I was impressed that, although this meant no commission for him, he still advised what he thought was in my best interests. I'm settled now, but wouldn't hesitate to consult him about career advice (not just job opportunities) again if I needed to. "
