Cardiff-based Blake Morgan Named as one of UK’s Most Popular Graduate Employers


Law firm Blake Morgan has climbed the rankings for the second year running in a comprehensive list of employers that graduates would most like to work for.

The Cardiff firm is named in this year’s The Guardian UK 300, which is compiled from research conducted by international research firm trendence and lists the 300 most popular employers for UK graduates.

Blake Morgan saw its placing rise to 174th – a leap up from the ranking last year of 183rd. The law firm’s position was 286th in the previous year.

Students who took part in the survey were asked which career sectors interested them most, and were then invited to choose which graduate employers within those sectors they would most want to work for.

Blake Morgan runs a number of initiatives to attract the best young talent, including a graduate programme designed to give trainees opportunities to succeed in a nurturing training environment.

Liz Bryne, head of graduate recruitment at Blake Morgan, said:

“We are delighted that our ranking has gone up for the second year running and it reinforces our position as one of the UK’s leading graduate employers. Blake Morgan’s position in this highly-regarded list highlights the firm’s dedication to bringing out the best in graduates who choose to begin a legal career with us. We are committed to further building our position as one of the best employers for graduates.”

The 2017/2018 publication will be distributed to more than 120 UK universities in September.
