Our values of Quality, Unity and Integrity are the foundation of our culture.
Our focus is on providing consistently high-quality legal services to clients across the business as industry experts. We operate in a team culture, collaborating and sharing information and knowledge across disciplines and markets to achieve the best results for our clients. We value our people – they are our most important asset and we promote a culture of respect for the individual. We build long term relationships with our clients and colleagues by being trustworthy, open and fair. We value our culture and work hard to preserve it.
We acknowledge that flexibility and responsiveness in serving our clients and meeting our business objectives are fundamental to our continued success. We also recognise that everyone in the business has responsibilities outside of work and that providing flexible work arrangements can assist in achieving an appropriate balance between responsibilities at work and personal responsibilities outside of work.
In addition to flexible working arrangements, we offer employees purchased flexible leave, have a social club that regularly runs events for its members and supports attendance at various charity and sporting events across the country.
Our National Clerkship Program offers a real taste of life as a Graduate, including attending clients meetings and teleconferences, visits to court, research, preparation of court documents, drafting deeds/contracts, discovery and much more.
We have designed the graduate program to give you the widest exposure to our world. It features a minimum of two rotations across twelve months (and maximum of four rotations over twenty-four months), each of which will broaden your understanding of our work, our clients and our global reach.
When you commence as a graduate, we will support your Practical Legal Training through the College of Law. You will receive onsite training, study leave allowance and the cost of your course covered.
You will also be eligible to apply for a 6-month rotation to one of our international offices.
Throughout the graduate program, we provide in-house specialist training through our world-class global learning and development framework. Our training will build your career both as a lawyer and a business adviser. In addition to all of this, we will provide you with all the support, insights and advice you could possibly need to help you realise your potential and decide on your future direction.
Successful candidates should be in their penultimate year of studying law. Life experience is also highly regarded at Norton Rose Fulbright, be it in the form of work experience; involvement with the campus, or non-campus, clubs and societies; travel; or even a previous career before embarking on law.
The way summer clerks and graduates interact with our clients is as important as their working relationships with colleagues. A genuine passion for the law will not only drive career progression but inspire candidates to be part of a great team. At Norton Rose Fulbright you will enjoy a high level of access to Partners, working in a non-hierarchical and supportive culture.
Although academic achievement is important it is considered in the much broader context of your other life experiences.
