Vacation Placements

Fieldings Porter offers formal work placements during the summer vacation period. We understand the need for students to gather valuable experience in legal practice, particularly for students who ultimately wish to seek Training Contracts. Each placement is for the whole summer and time is spent doing a variety of tasks in any department. The aim of the placement is to give students a real experience of the world of work in a busy solicitors’ office.

Most placements will be based out of our Bolton Office, but on occasion some may be available in Manchester. Placements are available to university students or graduates. Law students/graduates are preferred but not essential.

We value the contribution that students can make to our business during the summer months and the hard work and dedication students make during the placement. Our summer work placements are therefore paid placements with appropriate holiday allowances.

Applications for our vacation scheme should be made by sending in a full CV and covering letter stating why you wish to apply to Fieldings Porter, what you think you will gain from the placement and how you can help us. Please email your applications and covering letter to us at

Our 2019 summer work placements are from 3rd June 2019 to 30th August 2019. Applications are open until 28th February 2019.  Candidates selected for interview will be notified by 1st April 2019 and interviews will take place between 23rd and 30th April 2019.
