A new report into 25-34 year olds working in the legal industry has discovered that the frequency with which individuals in this age group change jobs is a real issue for employers.

The report finds that 'a lack of engagement with strategic direction' tends to be the problem. But competition to secure a training contract and a desire to achieve this anywhere rather than at a firm that specifically meets their career aims and ambitions may also play a role. Perhaps more needs to be done to ensure young lawyers start at firms which are the right 'fit' for them and then for the law firms to offer employees stronger guidance and direction to fulfill their potential.
