Careers

Graduate Program

When we recruit our graduate, clerkship and research assistant positions, we're recruiting our partners of tomorrow. We are committed to developing our future legal practitioners through a variety of graduate and educational opportunities. HopgoodGanim's graduate program is about providing real opportunities and real challenges in a professional working environment. 

Relationships are crucial

We’re looking for graduate lawyers who will thrive in our relationship culture from day one. Your training will see you in front of clients most days of the week and working side by side with our senior lawyers and partners to solve real commercial issues. Being able to connect and form a positive and professional relationship with colleagues and clients is really important.

Commercial acumen

While good results at university are highly regarded, the ability to understand commercial problems is equally as important in the people who join our team. Commerciality is something that we train for, but we also look for graduate lawyers who are passionate about learning about an industry or market sector and who ask the right questions to truly understand the problem they’re being asked to solve.

Deliver a real service

Hand in hand with our relationship culture is the importance of delivering an exceptional client experience consistently. Every single member of the HopgoodGanim team has a role to play in what our clients experience when they work with us and our graduate lawyers are no exception to this. A high service focus and an innate desire to do the best you can is also a quality that we value in our people.

Change is coming

The future of the legal profession is exciting. Our graduate lawyers will shape the future of this firm, the services we deliver, how we deliver them and how we work, so we’re looking for people who are excited by the changes our profession is undergoing and who are ready to be a part of this change process with us.
