I very much doubt applications are ‘skyrocketing’ across all firms, just a handful. Reply Link Anonymous 10 May 2010 at 19:53 Yes, I agree. Though twobirds likes to wheel out these positive recruitment stories whenever it can. Since the trainee intake at twobirds is teeny, they can hardly be congratulated for retaining everybody. And anyway, doesn’t this firm have dire prospects for its more senior lawyers re. partnership opps etc. ? Perhaps they concentrate on getting in the newbies more than looking after the ones they’ve already got. Oh well, it’s not the only city firm to have that sausage production line system to feed the need for the city skivvy work.
