School Leaver Opportunities - Solicitor Apprenticeship (NESA scheme)
Sintons is part of a wider consortium of employers based in the North East, called the North East Solicitor Apprenticeship group 'NESA'.
Apprentices start in September of each year, with the recruitment window, typically starting in January. For more information on the six-year apprenticeship school lever programme here.
Corporate Social Responsibility
We take our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) work very seriously and are very proud of the work we have done to support our local charities and community to date. We have a dedicated CSR committee who meet to develop the firm’s involvement in local projects and activities, and we also choose a North East good cause to support every two years through a firm ballot which all the firm’s fundraising then goes towards. Each year our Trainees organise a “challenge” to raise funds for our chosen charity, ranging from Coast to Coast, 2 Peaks, and the Port to Port from Zeebrugge to Amsterdam.
