About

Ablethorpe Recruitment are a specialist legal recruitment company operating in Australia and internationally. Our Australian offices include Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth and we work though affiliates to cover legal recruitment in Japan, UK, New Zealand, Central Europe, the Middle East and Hong Kong.

We believe success is measured by our two core values – honesty and professionalism. This means we keep the sales pitches to a minimum and instead focus on matching the best roles with the best people.

Law jobs are stereotypically complex and multifaceted with candidates requiring a unique set of skills for any one legal role. It is for this reason that our consultants are legally qualified and highly qualified; having formerly worked within the legal industry themselves. By understanding the legal industry and law jobs themselves, our specialist legal consultants have first-hand knowledge at finding the best fit between candidate, role and company.

Aside from boasting some of the most experienced legal consultants in our industry, our success (and yours!) also come from our firm belief in building careers, not just single placements. It is this value that has allowed us to grow a solid network of lawyers that we regularly speak with both personally and online.

Whether you are looking for permanent, contract or temporary legal work, or are a company looking to fill any of these roles, the specialist team of legal recruiters at Ablethorpe can help.

Just some of the roles we regularly look after include in-house legal recruitment of In-House Counsel and General Counsel and Company Secretary, as well as private practice appointments including junior lawyers, Senior Associate, Special Counsel and Partners.

Our clients include a diverse range of firms from private practice through to corporate and government, giving you the confidence that we will be able to understand your unique needs and exceed your expectations through the recruitment process.

In addition to our specialised legal recruitment consultancy, our annual Salary Guide provides you with a yearly legal market update and salary guides for in house and private practice legal jobs in Australia. Any of our Consultants are available to talk through the salary guide information and are able to offer market advice. You can call us on +61 3 8319 4020 to learn more.
