Find Your Next Legal Role Today


Manchester has seen significant investment over recent years, resulting in a more vibrant business community and the generation of greater legal job opportunities. One of the most important innovations for Manchester has been the launch of MediaCityUK, more than 140,000sqm of floor space on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal in Salford and Trafford. The landmark development features digital studios and office facilities, plus residential, retail and leisure space, as well as being home to the BBC. Solicitors have been at the heart of this business activity in Manchester too, with law firms seeing a time of great growth and high levels of recruitment within the city’s legal jobs scene. Origin Legal has been one of the key operators within this recruitment drive, working with many of the most active legal firms in the area and finding legal jobs for some of the top solicitors in search of the next step in their career.

City Law Firm

“I have been impressed with the degree of personal service received by Origin Legal. Their approach seems to be to not bother clients unless they have someone suitable or a valid and relevant question to ask, which is appreciated, particularly in the current climate. The consultants are also honest, professional and friendly.”

Private Client

“I have worked with Origin for a couple of years now. I have always appreciated their friendly approach, openness and honesty. I know I will get solid advice that I can trust and that there is no hidden agenda. They really make an effort to connect with their clients and to get to know them. And when you genuinely get on, it is that much easier to work together.”
