Vanessa Halley Financial Controller & Business Manager
Working with Bird & Bird is the most rewarding time of my employment life. In these four years, it has given me a great platform to progress in my career, with challenging tasks and excellent mentors. During any difficult situations, all partners and management are always ready to help.
Anil Jaganiya Assistant Finance Manager
It’s been great to come back to work with Bird & Bird, to see the fantastic growth over the last 20+ years, and to actually find so many of the team still in place. So many of the core values of the firm haven't actually changed that much, and that's very refreshing.
Chris Woodforde Head of Corporate Affairs

At Bird & Bird we want our people to bring their whole self, and their best self, to work. Our local D&I Committee is dedicated to ensuring that everyone is welcome here. We are passionate about creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity and equality, and that is why we are regularly nominated as an Employer of Choice.
Our local Environmental and Sustainability Committee supports and drives our global E&S commitment by creating and reviewing local policies and guidelines, introducing new green and clean office initiatives, and increasing our social and ethical awareness as global citizens.
Bird & Bird is a strong supporter of social justice and we recognise the importance of ensuring the law is accessible to all. We are proud signatories to the National Pro Bono Target. We support our fee earners as they undertake 35 hours of pro bono work each year and encourage all employees to get involved with our pro bono clients. Our pro bono partner oversees all the pro bono work we deliver and is supported by a passionate Pro Bono Committee, driving initiatives aimed at greater social responsibility.
We are focused on sourcing goods and services from suppliers that are environmentally sustainable and ethically made and we support local businesses and communities at every opportunity. Whether it is purchasing stationery or catering from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations or buying gifts from international charitable foundations, regional communities, or organisations supporting survivors of domestic and family violence; if we can see our dollars doing good things in our community, we know we are on the right track when it comes to giving back.
