Testimonials

“My experience of working at Murdoch Lawyers has been a positive step in beginning my career. I have been given the opportunity to grow and develop and have migrated from a Reception role to a Paralegal role. The diversity of the tasks which I have undertaken have enabled me to further my skills which I have really enjoyed. I feel I have grown a lot within the workplace, becoming more confident in everything I do and more confident as a person. I also enjoy/appreciate the social aspect of working at Murdochs. As a member of the social committee I enjoy organising and participating in the fundraising activities as well as the daily morning teas provided. I really enjoy my role at Murdoch Lawyers and continue to be given new opportunities and tasks every day.”

“My time at Murdochs has exposed me to both challenging and rewarding experiences.  What I enjoy most about working for such a reputable firm is not only the confidence that I am acquiring skills which I will apply throughout my career, but the ability to do so in a positive, productive environment.  High achievement is almost unanimously born from high expectations and I look forward to a prosperous future with such a supportive and experienced team.”

M- Paralegal

 

“I like working at Murdochs because the directors and staff are so supportive of me and, in particular, my health issues.  They are flexible with my work hours and I am able to leave early if necessary. They are very understanding when it comes to me having a number of days off to attend specialist and doctors appointment in both Brisbane and Toowoomba Lawyers.  Furthermore, the directors and staff take the extra step to always ask if I am ok and how my appointments went. 

 I also love the benefits that Murdochs provide to its staff members.  Each year we are provided with a health and wellbeing package which we can use to pamper ourselves with a massage, put towards joining the gym or perhaps buying new glasses.  There are also many other things like flexible working hours, working from home and regular morning teas, which sets a great culture and provides a happy and comfortable working environment.”
