This is your opportunity to work for one of Australia's largest specialised teams in energy and resources, renowned for advising major Australian and global corporations.

You'll have the rare experience of collaborating closely with a small local team under the guidance of a partner, while being part of a huge firm that handles more cross-border transactions than any other.

  • Project financing and development
  • Pumped storage Hydro and Wind Projects
  • Joint venture and off-take arrangements
  • Oil and gas projects and transactions
  • Equity financing 
  • Energy market, emission reduction and carbon regulation

  • Benefit from 26 weeks of parental leave.
  • Hybrid working model and flexible leave options.
  • This includes the freedom to work from anywhere globally for up to four weeks each year!
  • Plus International Secondment Opportunities.
  • Associates with at least 3 years of PAE, considering those with up to 6 years of experience.
  • Whether you come from a background directly in energy and resources or have honed your skills in corporate M&A and aspire to specialise in this field, we welcome your application.
