Working at Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills

At Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills we offer 'big firm' work in a 'small firm' culture. Our multi-disciplinary revenue practice combines the best aspects of both law and accounting firm tax work. We provide opportunities for both tax accountants and lawyers to excel in their chosen profession.

Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills offers a friendly and professional culture with continuous learning and development, challenging work, regular client contact and a supportive environment to develop your career. 

Graduate opportunities

We invite final year university students with a suitable academic focus to apply for graduate employment with the firm in Sydney commencing in the year following application. Our Melbourne office does not take on graduates directly. Rather, graduates at our affiliated firm, Herbert Smith Freehills, have the opportunity to do a rotation through Greenwoods, which may lead to full time employment the firm. Melbourne-based students can apply to Herbert Smith Freehills here.

As a graduate you will have the opportunity to specialise in taxation immediately without the need to rotate through non-tax areas. You will work on a broad range of tax-related issues arising in areas such as corporate structuring, mergers and acquisitions, structured finance, property development, financing of business acquisitions and major capital assets and providing clients with advice in their ongoing taxation affairs.


Professional, experienced staff work closely with our Directors in the provision of tax advice and the development and implementation of innovative solutions. We invite tax professionals with experience from a variety of backgrounds and academic qualifications to apply for employment with the firm.
