Working at Maddocks

We are proud of our culture, where all of our people have a vital contribution to make towards the success of the firm and are given opportunities to get the most out of their careers.

Collaboration and Imagination

Clients are at the heart of everything we do. At Maddocks, we champion true collaboration between our lawyers, our secretaries and our shared services teams. Unified, skilled teams mean stronger outcomes for our clients.

We recognise that the legal profession is changing, and we’re committed to providing more innovative services to meet our clients’ needs. We support innovative thinking by training our people in design thinking and providing year-round opportunities to generate and implement ideas.

Flexible working practices have long been a part of our culture. We recognise that work is what people do, not a place where you go. As an employee you will have access to market-leading working and parental leave arrangements.

All of our employees can take advantage of our great learning and development programs, mentoring and networking opportunities. Our people are encouraged to participate in seminars and training programs, with partners dedicated to continuing legal education.

We also run a number of out-of-hours social and sporting activities, from fun runs and triathlons to regular Friday night events and social functions, where everyone is invited to participate.
