Training Contract 2024 - Manchester

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

TLT’s trainee programme will transition to the SQE route from our September 2024 intake. If you have the LPC or are currently studying towards it, you can still apply for our SQE route and be exempt from the SQE1 exam. As part of our SQE programme, TLT will sponsor you through SQE1 and SQE2 along with other personal development workshops and you will complete 2 years Qualifying Work Experience before qualifying as a Solicitor with us. Full sponsorship information will be available in due course. We may be able to offer an earlier start date following the traditional LPC route if an opportunity arises.


TLT is a place where ambition and drive really matter. We want lawyers that push boundaries, ask questions and can solve complex problems.

But what matters to you? Train with us and you can voice your ideas, get stuck into client work and have input on where and how you work. You’ll join an open and collaborative culture where you can approach anyone for a conversation and get involved in causes that you care about.

Our SQE training programme gives you the opportunity to grow your legal knowledge and business development experience. It puts you right at the heart of the action and is all about giving you real work, creating real results and getting real recognition for your achievements

We work with clients from the Clean Energy, Digital, Financial Services, Leisure, Food & Drink, Public Sector, Real Estate and Retail & Consumer Goods sectors. You’ll get to know their businesses in and out and make a real difference, no matter who you are.


Role Responsibility

During your qualifying work experience (QWE), you will work in four different parts of our firm for six months each. This four-seat rotation process, including a contentious seat, gives you a fantastic opportunity to really experience the way we work and helps you to become an informed business advisor.

Your supervisor will work with you during your regular training. Through collaboration and communication, you will boost your technical legal knowledge and sharpen your commercial instincts.

Alongside your in-seat training, our Trainee Development Workshops will show you:

  • how to grow your personal brand
  • the broad range of skills necessary for business development
  • effective ways to form client relationships

These sessions are all about giving you the right mindset for success as well as the focus and resilience you need for a career in law.
