Why your firm?

2016

"I liked the idea of a City firm outside of the City so that I could have a much nicer work/life balance. I also feel that the prospects of career progression are more promising here, given the small intake of trainees."
First year trainee, Guildford
"Its excellent reputation outside of London and its international reach."
First year trainee, Guildford
"High-quality work across a broad range of departments at a firm that isn't based in the City."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"I participated in the firm's vac scheme and really enjoyed it. I also like the high quality of work and opportunity to work in areas that I was interested in."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"I was keen to apply to firms in Guildford and, after researching the firm, I could see that the quality of work was comparable to what was available in the City while still being located outside of London."
First year trainee, Guildford
"The fact that they are just outside of London. You get the same quality of work and, arguably, even better-quality training. Being one of only a handful of trainees means you can really make an impression and people take the time to teach you properly. It also provides a great work/life balance."
First year trainee, Guildford

2015

"I participated in a vacation scheme at the firm which I really enjoyed and was impressed with the culture at the firm. I applied to the firm in general because I wanted to experience City-style work outside of the City which is one of the unique selling points of the firm."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"I applied here due to the firm's reputation for being a big name in the South East whilst not being beholden to the confines of City life."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"I applied to S&B because I wanted to train in a place where I was given the attention and level of responsibility which I need in order to become an excellent lawyer. The intake of 4/5 people meant that I would take on this level of responsibility from an early stage and as a result develop at a much quicker pace."
First year trainee, Guildford
"I was encouraged to apply here by the fact that everyone I spoke with seemed genuinely happy to work at the firm and in the location. It really is a great place to work if you aren't drawn to working at a City firm."
First year trainee, Guildford
"I applied here because of the six-seat structure, the one office, the quality of work outside of London."

Second year trainee, Guildford
"I applied to Stevens & Bolton for a number of reasons: the impressive client list; salary and career prospects; and the fact that it is a genuinely unique firm."
First year trainee, Guildford
"I applied to S&B because of its location and the friendly feel which I experienced on the vacation scheme."
