One Small Change

2015

"More support in and around seat choices would help trainees to make more informed decisions."
Second year trainee, London
"I want there to be more crazy fun social events in the first induction week."
First year trainee, London
"Clearer transparency on seat choices, who is being placed in what department and more communication from graduate recruitment around this would improve things."
Second year trainee, London
"More structure could really improve the experience, so I think that a system should be designed, such as for training, hours and mentoring."
First year trainee, London
"Some departments are massively over-subscribed, e.g. ten trainees applying for one or two seats in a popular department. Not sure how this could be overcome, but more trainees should be able to get their seat of choice."
Second year trainee, London
"A guaranteed secondment either abroad or in industry could improve things."

First year trainee, London
"I would like the mandatory second corporate seat to be removed."
Second year trainee, London
"Perhaps a better work/life balance could be incorporated."
