Background triangle


We’re hiring. And we want to hear from you.

We are strong believers that a successful, rewarding career in the legal profession doesn’t have to be incompatible with a well-rounded personal life. And don’t just believe us – in 2020, Australasian Lawyer named Gilchrist Connell as a 2020 Employer Of Choice, recognising our demonstrated commitment to engaging and empowering our team to do well at work, in their careers and in their lives. In 2021 Australasian Lawyer again named Gilchrist Connell as an Employer of Choice.

Gilchrist Connell offers a fresh, diverse and stimulating work environment with exposure to interesting and challenging work across many different lines of business and industries. We believe that being a lawyer is not just a job, it is a life-long career and we will provide you with guidance to ensure you achieve your goals.

We pride ourselves on the quality of the legal services we provide and we will invest in your growth and success. We provide mentoring at the right level, extensive library and research resources, learning opportunities such as in-house and external seminars and we will always support your continued legal education. You will also be encouraged and assisted to publish your own work.

Unity is one of our core values, which means we embrace teamwork and the importance of building strong, enduring relationships. We organise regular social functions, and appreciate how important it is to balance work and play – and to enjoy the best of both. Our commitment to work-life balance was widely recognised in 2016 when we were rated by The Australian as Australia’s most flexible legal workplace.

We also believe in contributing to the communities around us and we are committed to charitable involvement and volunteering, as you can see on our Community page.
