Careers

Welcome from the Chairman

Working at Maurice Blackburn is a lifestyle choice. Maurice Blackburn employees fight for outcomes that make a genuine difference to peoples' lives. We've asked our employees why they like working at Maurice Blackburn, and many of their responses are because they're attracted to our firm's values and principles, and they are passionate about social justice and the right to a fair go.

Working at Maurice Blackburn is a rewarding experience. You may be starting your legal career, have been practising law for many years, or you have skills in areas such as office administration, reception, human resources, finance, marketing, communications, facilities, knowledge management or IT.

Personally, I started my legal career at Maurice Blackburn as an articled clerk and over a 30-year period I have had the privilege of watching the firm grow to more than 800 employees in almost 30 city, suburban and regional offices in Victoria, NSW, ACT, WA and Queensland.

Maurice Blackburn is a very supportive workplace, no matter how long you've been working with the firm. It's a harmonious place where talented individuals share our passion for helping others. It's also why we continually invest in initiatives that support our firm's principles.

At Maurice Blackburn, we provide employees with the right tools, technology and training to enable them to work effectively and efficiently. We also offer generous employee benefits including:

  • health and wellbeing initiatives including free gym membership or a financial contribution towards a health and wellbeing activity (subject to office location)
  • learning and development opportunities
  • paid parental leave
  • swap pay for additional leave
  • social club activities and
  • direct involvement in community activities.

Importantly, the firm provides support for employees to progress their careers, including study leave and structured learning groups for lawyers undergoing accreditation qualifications. There are also specific programs for trainee lawyers and seasonal clerks.
