Pluses

2016

"Amazing secondment opportunities, great people, fantastic work."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"High-quality work, a lot of responsibility, good collegiate atmosphere, interesting social and charitable initiatives."
First year trainee, London
"A huge mix of trainees in terms of backgrounds, experiences and outlook. It's really great to be among such a diverse group of people."
First year trainee, London
"Every firm says it but Eversheds really is a fantastic place to work. Despite its size (which has its own benefits) everybody knows everybody and there is an incredibly strong collegiate attitude in everything we do. We have a misleading reputation in the market for being 'aloof', and this actually dissuaded me from applying to Eversheds in my first couple of years out of uni. I wish I had dismissed others' comments and seen for myself sooner!"

"I always wanted to work on international deals and this is exactly what I get to do, with the additional benefit of getting to do it in Leeds. My colleagues are extremely knowledgeable, which is great for learning and they are well respected in their fields."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"Access to partners/seniors due to open plan working space. Ability to engage with multiple areas of the business. Secondment opportunities. Regional diversity. Working across the UK in particular but also Europe and internationally."
