Continuing our investment in future talent

12th October 2020

We are delighted to continue to recruit, nurture, and retain the best talent as part of our investment in and expansion of our legal expertise.

We invest heavily in our staff and prides ourselves on being the first choice of employment for its trainees when they finish their training, as well as recruiting new trainees.

Emily Ibberson and Alexander Aitken, who trained with us, have recently become qualified solicitors. Emily takes on a role as a solicitor in our dispute resolution team in Bradford while Alex has qualified into our corporate team in Leeds.

I am extremely happy to have qualified into the dispute resolution team and to continue my career. I would highly recommend the training contract offered at Schofield Sweeney, as you are exposed to high quality work and offered lots of support throughout.” Emily Ibberson.

Four new trainees have also joined. Harry Whyte and Darcey Sutcliffe join the commercial property teams in Leeds and Bradford. Leigh Freeman and Abigail Christopher start their training careers in the corporate teams in Huddersfield and Leeds respectively.

Luisa D’Alessandro, partner and training principal commented: “We are very pleased to be joined by new talent, especially at a time when much of the news is focussed on job losses rather than job creation. We put a great deal of time and resource into finding, nurturing, and retaining talent. Our trainees often tell us that not only do they really enjoy working with us, but that they value the quality of the training we provide and our ability to give them the best possible hands-on experience and learning opportunities and throughout their contracts.  Our trainees and newly qualified solicitors are really important for the future success and ongoing development of the firm.”
