Graduate Recruitment

We believe Sintons is the ideal place to start your legal career. If you’re looking for a training contract in an award-winning law firm, regarded as one of the very best in the North of England, which is known for the close and supportive working environment it offers, then Sintons is the place for you.

At Sintons, we are absolutely committed to the development of future legal talent and from the day they join us, our trainees are a central part of our team. Starting your training contract with us is just the beginning of your legal career and we will work with you to enable you to be the best lawyer you can be; after all, you are the future of our firm. You will benefit from working alongside some of the leading lawyers in their field, regionally and nationally, and will be supported every step of the way on your way to qualification.

During your two-year training period with us, you will complete seats in four different departments, which will offer experience of a full range of work. You will be given responsibility from day one and will be enabled to work directly with our clients. We handle matters on behalf of businesses and individuals throughout the UK, meaning you will be given unrivalled opportunities to get involved in a very broad range of work.

We work very closely as a firm, and while we are split into a number of departments, everyone knows everyone else. We pride ourselves on the close working relationships we have throughout Sintons. Our group of trainee solicitors and solicitor apprentices take a lead in our firm-wide fundraising efforts, on behalf of our nominated firm charity, which will give you a chance to get to know our firm and our people very quickly.

Now is a great time to join Sintons. We are a strong and ambitious law firm, which won an unprecedented five awards at the Northern Law Awards 2019, including the overall Law Firm of the Year. We are also continually recognised for our strength and capability throughout the business, most recently by Legal 500 2021 and Chambers 2020, which hailed Sintons as a stand-out specialist advisor in the North of England in many key areas of the firm.
