From local, national and international law firms, to corporate and government clients – we’ve placed lawyers at all levels locally, interstate and abroad.

Our Track Record

Peppercorn Recruitment understands our business and without exception has delivered outstanding and ‘fit for purpose’ candidates for our consideration. It is a comfort knowing the Partners of Peppercorn Recruitment have a legal background and we think this assists their ability to recommend the best candidates.

General Counsel, National Not-For-Profit Organisation

Peter and Ross have the industry know-how to not only meet, but exceed my expectations. They deliver time and time again the highest calibre candidates, ticking all the boxes. I can trust that when they say they have found someone, I won’t be disappointed. Their straight shooting, no nonsense approach is why I will continue to rely on Peppercorn Recruitment.

Human Resources Director, National Law Firm

Peppercorn Recruitment take a considered and professional approach to servicing our legal recruitment briefs and demonstrate an exceptional understanding of the legal market.  Our professional relationship continues to strengthen and I would highly recommend Peppercorn Recruitment in the provision of legal recruitment services.

Human Resources Manager, International Law Firm

I was very impressed with the service and advice I received from Peter at Peppercorn. I was looking to move from the public sector into private practice and Peter was willing to explore ways to promote my skills and experience in a new job market. Other recruiters were not as open to what I could offer private firms. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to explore the next stage in their career.

Senior Employment Lawyer, Top Tier Law Firm

Peter has placed me in my last two positions. Peter has given me invaluable long term career guidance throughout my career. With Peter’s knowledge of the legal industry, Peter has given me guidance on strategic career moves with a position to specialise in a new area and then recently a new role to advance my position to higher levels. I highly recommend Peter to give trusted career advice.

Senior Associate, Property, National Law Firm

Due to his relationship with one of the leading law firms in Brisbane, Ross was able to place me in a role that was created for me.  Ross identified the group, in which I now work, was lacking a particular skill set, which I could bring.  My new employer agreed.   It is the best career move I have made.

Diversity in the Legal Profession

3 October 2019

I recently sat on the panel hosted by the Queensland Law Society (QLS) and the Asian Australian Lawyers Association (AALA) to discuss diversity in the legal profession.

Looking for a Less Traditional Legal Career Path?

30 July 2019

If we’re honest, most of your law degree is geared towards setting you up in a private practice career of some kind. However, that doesn’t mean that you’re completely stuck in a traditional legal role if you decide along the way that it’s not for you. The soft skills you have developed along the way…
