33 out of 39
Slaughters confirmed 34 of its 39 trainees due to qualify in March received offers, with 33 accepting. All are on permanent deals.
This gives the firm, which offers nearly 90 training contracts a year, a retention rate of 85%.
The Legal Cheek Firms Most List 2022 show the rookies staying on will receive a newly qualified (NQ) salary of £107,500 after the firm announced an increase last month. This is nearly double the firm’s second year trainee salary of £55,000.
Today’s result is slightly down on the firm’s 2021 spring rate, when it retained an impressive 93% (38 of 41) of its qualifying trainees.
