2016

"The firm has made offers to all qualifying trainees for the past two years."
Second year trainee, London
"All trainees from the intake above me were offered jobs on qualification. This is definitely promising but I understand that this does depend on the preferences submitted by other trainees and how much competition there is for particular roles."
Second year trainee, London
"With such a small intake, there can be a fair amount of fluctuation in the retention rates year on year. That said, for the last few years, all qualifiers have been offered jobs at the firm."
First year trainee, London
"The firm is growing in size and this is generating increasing amounts of work. All trainees were offered positions during the last round of qualification."
First year trainee, London
"They've picked up in the last few years, along with business demand and the market. I'm confident I will be kept on so long as there is sufficient business demand in the department I would like to qualify into."
Second year trainee, London
"Retention rates have not always been the best but offers were made to all trainees last year."

"Recently retention rates have been excellent at the firm. Should there be business need in the department in which I want to work, I am fairly confident that I will be kept on."
First year trainee, London
"Traditionally retention has not been great but hopefully it is improving with the market."
Second year trainee, London
"While retention wasn't looking great a couple of years back, it has really picked up again in the last two years. The firm emphasises that we are all taken on the training contract to be kept on."
First year trainee, London
"Retention rates seem to have improved over the last few years, but whether I can qualify into my preferred seat in two years time will depend on a lot of factors."
