Trainee Retention

8.0 / 10

(based on 14 ratings in 2019)


"Retention rates at the firm appear standard across the profession. The firm retains hard-working and commercially-minded trainees. If you have common sense and a willingness to learn, you are likely to be retained."
First year trainee, Exeter
"From what I have seen, the retention rates are generally very high."
First year trainee, London
"They are very good. The firm looks to keep all trainees and people only leave when the departments they want to qualify into are not able to take on new qualifiers at that time. Alternatives are almost always offered."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"It really depends on the intake. We have had intakes where retention rates have been around 90% while others were closer to 60%."
Second year trainee, London
"The retention is very good if there are jobs available in the department that you want. The people who left are the ones who did not have job availability."
Second year trainee, London
