Choosing where to work is an important decision for you. This section of our website is designed to help you decide whether we are the right legal practice for you.
We adopt a practical, hands-on approach which means our lawyers have direct contact with our client base and work on a diverse range of matters. This means you will be given work that is challenging, interesting and rewarding.
Our Directors are approachable and accessible to everyone. They are always open to the fresh views and ideas of all team members. They will spend time with you, discussing your work so that you can gain the benefit of their experience – thus helping you to learn and cultivate your own style in an environment that’s both stimulating and supportive.
At FC Lawyers we expect that all team members are focused on our clients’ success. It is important to us that we build long term relationships with our clients and we believe that all team members have a role to play in achieving this. However after the hard work has been completed and the expected results have been achieved it is just important to celebrate success. Hence at FC Lawyers we believe we’re relaxed, friendly and sociable. We organise a variety of social activities such as fun sporting activities, regular get-togethers like informal lunches, Friday night drinks and special events such as Christmas parties.
We are committed to helping our people achieve their full potential. Everyone is given an opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge through working in a stimulating environment and learning from practitioners who are leaders in their field.
To assist in this process, we conduct a regular performance and development review process which provides an opportunity to identify strengths and development opportunities.
Our ethos is always to develop and promote from within.
At FC Lawyers, we are very proud of our culture and we work very hard to recruit people that we believe will suit our culture.
Naturally, a sound academic record is an important starting point, but we also look at other attributes, like your extracurricular interests and life experiences outside your studies. These may be previous work experience, volunteer work, travel, sporting and cultural interests.
We look for personable, insightful, intelligent people with energy and enthusiasm. You need to be confident, skillful and enjoy working as part of a team.
