Who am I and what can I do for you?

I advise Solicitors at all stages of their career from Qualification through to Equity Partnership. One of the advantages of my longevity in the market is that many of my historical candidates are now clients, meaning not only that I know them well, but that they also know how I work and trust my opinion. This is of huge benefit to both clients and candidates - rather like lawyers who give bespoke commercial advice to their clients, rather than just quoting the law.

What else should you know about me?

Where to start without boring you! My route to recruitment was accidental but quickly followed graduation. I'm passionate about both the company and recruitment; I find people really interesting. Outside of work, I'm married, have two boys that keep me extremely busy and I'm currently successfully resisting any kind of pets, having had a bad experience with goldfish! I love socialising, which usually involves some form of drinking or eating but could equally mean supporting the mighty Leeds Rhinos.

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

ANYTHING involved with the Grand Prix! I’d particularly like Jake Humphey’s job........on second thought’s Eddie Irvine’s would be better as it would stop him presenting!

Likes: In no particular order: travel (particularly on water), interiors, food, music, my children (most of the time), warm weather, good service.

Dislikes: Laziness, traffic jams, soap operas, bad service!

Five words that describe me: Calm, tenacious, caring, outgoing, hard working.

What my Candidates and Clients have to say...

"I initially instructed Sacco Mann in 2013 following my graduation to secure my first legal role. Rachael, Fiona and the team's extensive knowledge of the market and firms, together with plenty of advice from them, helped secure that role which led to a Training Contract and qualification. Sacco Mann always really take the time to understand the type of firm and the work I am looking for, and have always hit the brief! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and would be reluctant to use any other agency. I highly recommend Rachael and the team for candidates of all levels having been successful in my placements from paralegal to NQ as a result of their excellent service."
Commercial Property Solicitor
"I recently decided to return to the UK after working overseas and Rachael Mann was the first person I thought to call to discuss legal career options. I initially consulted Rachael over 20 years ago when she helped me secure my first private practice posting as a qualified solicitor, and she subsequently helped me to move in-house. Rachael has an excellent knowledge of the current status of the legal market and is prepared to give an honest appraisal of suitable positions. She's also great at thinking laterally and is able to identify transferable skills that can be matched to possible alternative career paths. I haven't hesitated to recommend Rachael and Sacco Mann to lawyer friends and family considering their next move, and am looking forward to working with her again."
"I cannot recommend Sacco Mann enough. All staff were polite, professional, friendly and knowledgeable and it was obvious that they genuinely care about the high quality service that they provide you with. Their assistance in putting me forward for the position, and then their informative help and dedication thereafter made the whole experience excellent. Rachael even made herself available to me after she had officially clocked off! "
Associate Solicitor
"I have known and used Sacco Mann for many years both for my own personal career progression and as a recruiter to fill external vacancies. Sacco Mann are my "go to" recruitment agency both personally and for filling vacancies. Their skills are in listening to you and understanding your needs and objectives and matching you up perfectly with the employer. What you don't get is lots of mismatched candidates/positions and the jobs that I successfully applied for through Sacco Mann were excellent jobs. I have been in the current role over 5 years and I knew from the second I met the team that I had made the right choice - that was all down to Rachel Mann and Steve Shakespeare both who are a pleasure to deal with. My colleague who is also in-house with me was recruited through Sacco Mann and we have just employed them again exclusively to fill another role. Would not hesitate to highly recommend Sacco Mann and would go nowhere else for myself. "
"I just wanted you both (Rachael Mann & Katie Pringle) to know that I've been super impressed. Whatever happens with this role, you have been supportive, kind, thorough, and professional. I'm very well aware that I'm not your only candidate, and as such you don't have a vested interest in any final decision, yet your approach has really been fabulous. Even in the travel disaster that was Tuesday you were brilliant and really gave me confidence and ensured I was in the right frame of mind, in what was, for me, a really important interview. Only too often do these things get taken for granted. So I just wanted to say thank you. Whatever happens long term, you've both helped me as much as you possibly could!!! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone else. "
Senior Employment Associate
"Rachael was fantastic with my recent move to Gordons. From start to finish, the service that Rachael and the Sacco Mann team provided was second to none. Rachael thinks outside the box for potential employment opportunities and provided assistance and advice to a level far beyond expectation. I would, and will, recommend Rachael to anybody in the legal sector. "
