Are you looking for a 2023 IT Graduate Programme with a commercial difference? At Ashurst, we're looking for IT Graduates like you with a rare kind of mindset: an openness to the way you work, an agility to the way you think, and a strong desire to keep evolving as a professional.

Recruitment steps

1. Apply online before 5:00pm on Monday, 4 April 2022.

Students must be in their final year of an IT degree to be eligible. You also need to have Australian citizenship or be a permanent resident at the time of application.

2. Complete our psychometric assessment and interview process 

There's absolutely no Ashurst "type". We want to actively involve a broad range of minds with a broad range of backgrounds, all united by a common set of strengths. These strengths include a passion for Ashurst, outstanding communication skills, analytical ability, commercial awareness, teamwork and resilience.

3. Receive an offer to Intern with Ashurst during the June/July 2022 semester break.

The aim of our Internship is to expose you to as much real work as possible, to help you to make an informed decision about whether the Ashurst 2023 IT Graduate Programme is the right opportunity for you.  

But it's not all work! There's also a chance to get involved in understanding the different Legal practices through workshops, team-building events to understand how we work together, and social events to get to know our teams away from the bustle of daily life.  

Ideally Interns will join Ashurst from Monday, 20 June through to Friday, 15 July, on a fixed term, full time basis.  We will take into consideration exam timetables.  In addition to gaining valuable experience, working as an Intern presents an opportunity for you to join our Graduate Programme.  We offer most of our graduate roles to people who have completed an internship in one of our offices.
