Law firm Sintons has appointed a new head of people services.
Gemma Hewitt joins the Newcastle-based law firm to oversee and further develop Sintons’ commitment to its staff.

Sintons has a longstanding reputation as a great place to work for its team, with a focus on staff wellbeing and opportunities for progression and development throughout their careers.
Continually innovating and devising new ways of making Sintons even more appealing, its people services team is key in making the law firm stand out.
Gemma said: “I am really pleased to join Sintons. The firm is known as an excellent place to work for many reasons, but not least the great efforts it makes to look after its team. We spend most of our time at work, so it’s vital that businesses make it a positive experience for their teams, and Sintons’ work in this area is first-rate.
“Supporting the wellbeing of your workforce is essential and Sintons show genuine commitment in doing that, while continually devising new ways to attract and retain talent. I’m really looking forward to working with the team to develop that even further.”
Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, says: “We are absolutely committed to our team, they make us what we are, and looking after them and their wellbeing is our priority.
“We are proud of the reputation we have as being a great place to work, which extends far and wide. As well as attracting clients from around the country, we also have many of our team members relocating to the North East on the strength of what we have to offer at Sintons.
“People services plays a key role in us being able to deliver that and we are very pleased to welcome Gemma as our new head of department. Her experience in supporting the wellbeing and development of staff over almost two decades will bring valuable insight and ideas to our current practice and we look forward to working with her to develop ways in which we look after our team further still.”
