2026 Solicitor Training Contracts & Qualifying Work Experience (SQE)
If you'd like to undertake your training contract or qualifying work experience at one of the
largest firms in Northern England, we want to hear from you!
We've opened our application process for contracts and qualifying time to begin in 2026, with the deadline for applications set as 30th June 2024.
We're keen to secure the best candidates for our trainee solicitor programme and those interested in the SQE route and that's why we work two years in advance!
Once you've been through our application and interview process and on your application being successful, we'll welcome you to our future intake! Two years is a long time, but we'll keep in touch and ensure that you feel part of the firm and we'll work behind the scenes to put everything into place to ensure a smooth welcome to our business and the start of your career as a Solicitor.
When your joining day arrives we'll give you a comprehensive introduction to our business including a meet and greet with some of our current trainees and staff undertaking the SQE route. You'll be allocated a mentor who will meet with you regularly to review your progress and support you throughout the whole of your training contract/qualifying work experience.
Under the training contract route, we'll try our best to provide you with experience in your areas of interest and you can expect to work across a minimum of three of our teams at several of our offices. We'll let you know your next seat in plenty of time so if you're going to be working from a different office you have the opportunity to make your personal arrangements.
During your training contract period, we'll fund your PSC and allow you the time as necessary to attend and complete the course. As you reach qualification we'll assist you in the qualification process and celebrate with you!
If you would like to apply, please forward a letter of application and
