A&O cuts trainee intake and requests deferrals
Allen & Overy (A&O) is set to reduce its annual trainee intake, as the firm becomes the latest in the City to ask future trainees to defer. The magic circle firm is planning to take on 105 trainees a year from September 2011 - a drop from the 120 it currently recruits across its September and March intakes. In addition, following a review of its trainee recruitment processes, the firm has asked trainees set to start between September 2009 and September 2011 to push back their start dates by either six months or a year. The firm is hoping that around 10 trainees from each year will defer.
