"Generally good."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm does everything it can to retain trainees. As a rule, people only decide to leave if there are no jobs in the particular department they are interested in."
First year trainee, London
"Retention rates vary but are historically strong and positive. The risk of non-retention is a minor concern. There are sadly often some who are unable to remain."
First year trainee, London
"Not bad. However, there isn't always the business need to match everyone's new qualifier department choices."
First year trainee, London
"Qualification depends on where the jobs are and if people are interested in those jobs."
First year trainee, London

2015

"The retention rate is high - especially if you've had the chance to make a good impression in your seat."
First year trainee, London
"The retention rates at Nabarro have a great reputation. It seems that trainees are taken on with the hope to retain 100% of them at the end of their training contract."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"Generally the Sheffield office has a 100% retention rate, and when it drops it is because a trainee has decided to move elsewhere."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"I have signed an offer letter to be an NQ at Nabarro, so in my experience retention rates are very good."
Second year trainee, London

2014

"I was attracted to the firm by the high retention rates, however this year there has been a drop (which is obviously concerning). I understand that the system for hiring trainees is being updated to make it more transparent."
First year trainee, London
"Retention rates are good at Nabarro but the NQ process is being reviewed and the new system appears to be an improvement on previous years. Whilst retention rates have always been good, the NQ recruitment process hasn't but Grad Recruitment have put a lot of worthwhile effort into changing and improving this, this year."
Second year trainee, London
"The retention rates are actually very good but I do not know if the departments I am interested in will be recruiting."
First year trainee, London
