Why They Won

- With two different week-long placements, the scheme provided students with employability skills training, plenty of open mentoring opportunities and a plethora of thought-leadership insights from various figures internally and externally to the firm
- With 91% of graduates entering the business having completed the three-week scheme, it’s been an incredibly successful pipeline for attracting, educating and on-boarding students into the business
