Join us and our way of life

At Murdoch Lawyers we understand what it means to provide excellent legal advice that ultimately, makes people’s lives better. With accredited specialists and a wealth of experience across five practice areas, we are a full-service law firm that does things differently.

With flexible working arrangements, there’s never been a better time to join one of Queensland’s leading regional law firms. Make the tree-change and escape the hustle and bustle of big city life in the regional city of Toowoomba and work from our founding office; base yourself in our Brisbane CBD office; work remotely; or take a hybrid approach and combine all three.

We are a purpose-led business and believe that supporting our people to determine what they want to achieve both personally and professionally will ultimately help to provide a great client experience. As such, we regularly work with our team on their career development and business contributions.

Our people also enjoy an environment that promotes professional and personal growth while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Our ‘business as usual’ looks like mentoring and skills development, health and well-being programs, regular (and we mean regular) social events and support of various community activities.

The Murdochs way

  • Committed: self-motivated, dedicated and accountable.
  • Communication: openness, honesty and integrity.
  • Care: empathy and respect.
  • Continuous Improvement: pursue high-quality results in our work and relationships.
  • Team members who return to us: we see the value in mentoring our people so they can live their best life and achieve their career and personal goals. We recognise the importance of growing them so they can eventually leave the “Murdochs nest” to expand their wings; but we also have an open door policy for those who share our values and have welcomed team members back to re-join us time and time again over the years.

Current Career Opportunities

  • Paralegal (Commercial Litigation)

  • Expressions of interest – In addition to these advertised opportunities, we are always excited to take expressions of interests from proactive people across all areas of our business. We have a long-standing history of creating roles for people who share our values and purpose (not just for lawyers, but for our professional team members too). If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you.

Please submit your resume and cover letter to our People Experience Manager, Holly Miller.

What's so special about working at Murdoch Lawyers?

Hear from our team

Hayden Ballinger

“My Murdochs experience so far has been very positive where I have been, and continue to be, exposed to a broad spectrum of interactions. I started in an Administrative role and have since been given the opportunity to move into a Paralegal role, all the while being able to develop my personal and professional skills and capabilities through diverse interactions with varying types of people and situations. In particular I have found the people at Murdochs to be very personable and supportive but also highly attentive to who they are dealing with, which is something I greatly appreciate and have experienced as equally appreciated by those who we have provided our services. I am excited for, and look forward to, my future involvement with Murdoch Lawyers, much like how I am excited for the day the Wallabies can return the Bledisloe Cup to Australia!”

“I am very fortunate to have a workplace who is supportive of my family’s need and allows me flexibility so I can attend school events or work remotely to fit in with my schedule. The value this firm places on investing in their people is next-level and makes me feel so very appreciated. There certainly is an excellent team culture here, and I genuinely love coming to work every day.  This is my second stint at the firm so I think that speaks volumes in terms of my loyalty to them.”

Tracey Kessels

“I’ve worked for a number of organisations large and small throughout my career.  Each job opportunity came along at the right time in my life and complemented the energy levels and needs I had at that time.  Now that I’m the oldest I’ve ever been, I was so grateful that Murdoch Lawyers saw the potential in me to assist them ‘make people’s lives better’.  The social and wellness initiatives in place for employees have blown me away.  It’s nice to do a good job and have those efforts appreciated.
