Recruitment Process

King & Wood Mallesons

Choosing the right firm for you is a big decision. Through our recruitment process, we aim to give you every opportunity to find out more about us. We are proud of our diversity and of the fact that people who come to join the team at King & Wood Mallesons do so from very different backgrounds and experiences, all of which come together to enable us to provide the very best possible work culture and service to our clients.

After you apply to us online we review every application carefully, before making the final selection of candidates for interview. 

Our interview process occurs in 1 or 2 stages dependent on the office you are applying for:

  • For the initial interview, you will come into our office to meet with a partner and a senior associate or solicitor from our Recruitment Committee.
  • If you second interview with us, you will have the opportunity to meet with a partner and over coffee, chat with a solicitor to ask any questions you might have about the firm, or the clerkship program in general.
  • As well as attending interviews you will be invited to events during the interview process, where you have an opportunity to meet partners and recruitment committee members. These evenings are a great way to meet various people within the firm and to gain a feel for the culture at King & Wood Mallesons. They will also help in providing insight to the groups you may be interested in and the type of work involved. All events are optional and it is not part of the assessment process.
