Pinsent Masons welcomes all candidates to apply, including but not limited to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, applicants from the LGBTIQ+ community, and candidates seeking part-time work.

Why join Pinsent Masons?

  • We have a global reach and a local feel. With 25 offices and 1500 lawyers, you'll be exposed to domestic, international and multi-jurisdictional high-profile work, yet be in an office where everyone knows your name.
  • We do things a bit differently. Legal services are at the core of our business, however we have diversified into other areas providing complimentary services to clients through offerings like Brook Graham and Vario flexible services.
  • We like to be flexible. Our firm is professional but also relaxed, you can dress for your day and in your own style. We also promote practices that support wellbeing, mental wellness and work/life balance so that everyone can thrive at work and at home.
  • We're lots of fun and very inclusive. Proud of our leading reputation for diversity and inclusion, we have created an open environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work. You'll also have plenty of opportunities to participate in, and even run, social activities, diversity and inclusion networks, and charitable initiatives.
