Although Australia has a notably uniform corporate culture, its capital cities and the states they serve differ in detail in important ways. These differences affect both the experience of practising law and the strategies needed to provide effective legal recruitment services. As the capital city of a state that has transformed itself from a pastoral to a resource-based economy, Brisbane has a vibrant market for legal talent that shows little sign of flagging. And with its congenial tropical climate, Brisbane offers rich lifestyle benefits to lawyers who value their recreational opportunities.

Can't thank Thomas Hobbs enough for the time and effort he's gone to in helping me get my dream job. I hadn't been through a recruiter before, and never realised how helpful it could be to have someone in your corner every step of the interview and job offer process. It's been a pleasure dealing with Thomas; highly recommend.
