2016

"There has been a strong commitment to diversity with respect to women. My entire intake is female and S&B has promoted female partners while they were pregnant."
First year trainee, Guildford
"We have recently improved the maternity and child care benefits. The firm is generally very good at being very flexible and offering as much as it possibly can."
First year trainee, Guildford
"The firm is, generally, a very inclusive place to work and there are flexi-benefits that acknowledge the fact that different people have different needs. I found the abundance of senior women at the firm an encouraging sign when applying. There are some projects that aim to encourage people from different backgrounds into the legal profession that the firm is involved with. However, I think there is always room to do more on this front."

2015

"The firm makes a real effort to be inclusive and flexible - I think it is one of the things that adds to the great culture of the firm."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"The firm is mindful of the different work patterns some people desire, and the opportunity for flexible working for those with young children or other needs is always taken seriously as far as I can tell."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"The firm seems very understanding of the need to allow for maternity leave and child care arrangements. However, perhaps as the firm is located in Surrey, there does not seem to be much diversity in terms of ethnicity."
First year trainee, Guildford
"The firm is improving all the time in terms of diversity; it really listens to everyone's views and makes a genuine effort to improve constantly."
Second year trainee, Guildford

2014

"Whilst flexible working is available it is not necessarily made possible or encouraged. Most of the partners are male but this seems to be gradually improving."
Second year trainee, Guildford
