Join us in Australia and be a core member of our team from your very first day. With over 100 people in our Sydney office, we remain a collaborative and highly connected team at a local and international level. We are consistently recognised by some of the most prestigious legal directories and institutions for the work we do for our clients. Our lawyers are selected with the view that they will become future leaders and experts in their chosen field of law. We know that engaging a diverse group of people from different backgrounds is key to our future growth and ongoing success. We strive to do the highest calibre of legal work and make impactful contributions in our wider community.
Can you see yourself with us? We can.
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.
I love the collegiate global nature of the firm. Every day me and members of my team are interacting with our colleagues across the Sydney office but also right across the world. We get to work on great matters with international clients and also build friendships with our colleagues right across the world.

Bird & Bird provides junior lawyers the opportunity to perform meaningful legal work on high-profile matters for multinational clients. This exposure to meaningful legal work, in exciting areas such as IP and TMT, is my favourite aspect of working at our firm.
