Ablethorpe Recruitment are a specialist legal services, consulting and recruitment company operating in Australia and internationally. Our Australian offices include Melbourne and Sydney, and we work through affiliates to cover legal resourcing and 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.

Jobs within the legal industry 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 with legal industry experience 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 successes (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 and consultants 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. We also advise and consult on legal position descriptions, role function and optimal legal team structures.

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 services and 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 9923 7454 to learn more.
