From playing a pioneering role in the development of legislation and regulatory frameworks in the Asia region for almost 200 years, to acting on numerous 'firsts' across a range of industry and community issues, it is in our DNA to make a difference and help shape what our world looks like.

Over this time, we've grown in scale and reach, today offering clients a global network of 40 offices in 28 locations through our global alliance with Linklaters.

About the traineeship

We are now accepting applications to join our Practice Assistant Trainee Program in Melbourne. Commencing in February 2020, our traineeship program has been developed to provide students who have completed a certification in Business Administration, or applicants who already have experience in an administrative role, with the opportunity to join a leading international law firm.

The program will run for approximately 10 months, with approximately 3 months each spent in some of our legal practice groups.  Trainees will have the opportunity to work with many practice assistants, lawyers and partners, to gain a better understanding of the areas of law we practise and to establish contacts within the firm.

This program will ensure that trainees experience all aspects of the firm including assignments in our legal practice groups, exposure to our corporate business service areas, and opportunities to gain an in-depth understanding of Allens' technical systems. We will provide great opportunities to grow and learn in an extremely supportive environment, whilst being mentored by some of the most highly regarded professionals.

What we are offering

  • Extensive training that covers the technical and practice management aspects of how Allens operates;
  • Ongoing learning and development opportunities; and
  • A permanent practice assistant role upon successful completion of your traineeship.

What we are looking for

  • People who demonstrate initiative, curiosity, resilience and a commitment to excellence in all they do;
  • Applicants that are currently undertaking or have completed a Certificate or Diploma in Business Administration or Legal Practice;
  • A minimum touch typing speed of 45-50 wpm; and
  • Basic computer literacy in Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook email.

What we'll offer

You will be an integral part of a high performing, national team.

At Allens, we provide lifelong learning that develops you personally and professionally, and access to people and leaders who can help you become the best you can be. You'll be given ongoing opportunities to get involved and to take your career all the way.

You'll enjoy a range of other benefits including free gym membership, staff discounts with hundreds of suppliers and regular social and sporting activities. Allens also leads the profession in community investment, giving you the opportunity to make a difference through our work on reconciliation, the environment and other social justice issues as well as our workplace giving and volunteering programs.
