Working with us


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

Graduate positions are offered to penultimate year university students who successfully complete the Greenwoods vacation clerkship program in our Sydney office. Graduates subsequently commence in the year following their final university year.

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.

Our Melbourne office does not take on graduates directly. Rather, graduates at our affiliated firm, Herbert Smith Freehills, have the opportunity to complete a tax rotation with Greenwoods. Melbourne-based students can apply to Herbert Smith Freehills here.


Professional, experienced staff work closely with our Directors in the provision of tax advice, compliance services 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. Applications can be sent to:
