Share this job with a friend

Do you think the world can work better?

Share in our purpose and see the world through the lens of better. Better defines the way we work and starts with asking questions like, what’s next? You see, the biggest breakthroughs in the world happen by asking these two small but powerful words. And that’s what we’re all about at EY.

We’ll provide you with experiences that’ll shape your career for years to come. Because when you grow, we do too. With EY you can influence the future of your career, the businesses you work with and even the world you live in.

One decision, a lifetime of opportunity

Join us full-time after graduation and you’ll be well on your way to achieving your career goals. We’ll propel you forward — so you can start to build the future you want immediately. We’ll guide you on how to help our clients, from entrepreneurial start-ups to multinationals in a range of different industries, manage risk, address issues and capitalise on opportunities.

You’ll get to work with experienced professionals who’ll guide you to be your best. You can expect to develop your networks, collaborate with specialists, learn from mentors and even study for postgraduate qualifications.

As part of the Law team, you will be part of the expanding EY legal network, which includes offices in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and in the Asia-Pacific region (including Hong Kong and Singapore), Europe, the Middle East and the Americas. The Law teams have a global footprint, comprising of over 2,100 lawyers across 80 countries.

In 2016, Norton & Smailes, a specialist tax and commercial law firm, merged with EY's law practice, cementing our position as a market leader in Perth.

Our team specialises in tax, trust law, estate planning, superannuation advice, not for profit work and commercial law.
