Why MinterEllison

The world is being disrupted and market demands are changing. The next generation of graduates will transform the future of legal services – we can give you the skills you need to do it well.

The game has changed. Be part of it.

MinterEllison is a prestigious, international law firm, headquartered in Australia. As one of Asia-Pacific’s leading firms, we’re borderless. We have the best people, working on the best matters, regardless of location.

Our multidisciplinary and industry-facing lawyers collaborate closely across our offices in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the UK. Our independence means we can adapt in parallel with our clients and market demand. In fact, we often lead the way.

With MinterEllison, you can be a global leader too. You’ll have the opportunity to work with renowned lawyers and experts from around the world. And to build remarkable solutions that go beyond one region’s laws and grasp the global picture. Essentially, you can be as agile, innovative and creative as we are.

We support you to succeed

Your success is our success. Which is why we celebrate and invest in our people. We consistently have a record number of promotions, and last year, won the award for ‘Best Learning & Development Program’ at the Australian HR Awards. We’re committed to helping our people achieve their best. And our development programs and initiatives are second to none.

We’re always working to open more doors for you. Recently, we restructured our organisation to make it even easier to collaborate across all our offices and access an international network of brilliant legal thinkers. Our structure also offers new career paths, allowing you to seamlessly work across multiple practice areas. 

We are proud of our diversity

We believe diversity makes us stronger. Our culture values individual contributions, teamwork, innovation and productivity regardless of background, ethnicity, gender, faith, sexual orientation, family structures or if you have a disability. In other words, we believe everyone should be able to bring their whole self to work. It’s why our people perform so well. We actively promote an inclusive work culture though our Empower Program and our Pride Respect & Inclusion at MinterEllison (PRiME) network, as well as through numerous internal training sessions and related resources.

We help our communities

We don’t lock ourselves away in our offices. Our people actively contribute to the communities they live and work in. We are passionate about making justice accessible to everyone, and working with young people and others experiencing homelessness and poverty to help break the cycle of disadvantage. Our community partnerships ensure that our resources go exactly where they’re needed. With our pro bono legal work, staff volunteer hours, in-kind support and community grants, our work makes a real difference.

We know there’s more to life than your job

We support a range of flexible working arrangements, including part-time, job-sharing, variable start and finish times, and working from home. Keen to study, work overseas or be a judge’s associate? We won’t make it hard for you to accept an amazing offer. That’s why we offer unpaid leave for special requirements not covered by our usual leave policies.

Your job should never get in the way of your health and wellbeing – it should improve it. We offer numerous employee benefits such as free gym memberships, counselling services, discounted health insurance, even in-house massages.
