Why join our team

As a top 20 Australian law firm DibbsBarker represents innovative, commercial legal solutions; quality services delivered by professional, experienced people working with industry leaders who demand the best.

DibbsBarker in brief

DibbsBarker is a major Australian legal group with over 200 legal and professional staff dedicated to meeting diverse client needs from our three Australian offices in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Industry specialisation in the areas of Financial Services, Insurance, Life Sciences & Healthcare and Real Estate & Construction also mean that we like to get beneath the surface of what makes our clients tick.

It may interest you to know we have existed for over 100 years and have had a few changes of name over that time. Name changes aside, our core values have stayed the same: a high level commitment to our clients and people; and a determination to deliver the best possible service. To achieve this DibbsBarker people have attitude, that is, the right attitude - professional, commercial and responsive, possess a sense of humour and team spirit, act true to themselves and think innovatively. Our clients enjoy working with us (yes, they’ve told us) and more importantly we enjoy working with them. The pride we take in our work returns excellent results for our clients and also is self rewarding.

Our way of life

It’s very satisfying to work with clients we enjoy and can add value to their business through our knowledge and expertise. That’s why we encourage our clients to meet all of our people working on their behalf. It’s also valuable that DibbsBarker people enjoy working with each other. The results of our 2012 Opinion Survey showed 98% of respondents agreed with the statement “I enjoy working with my colleagues” and 99% agreed that DibbsBarker is a “good place to work”.

These impressive results are a credit to the firm’s friendly and supportive work environment which fosters equal opportunity and a strong sense of professionalism.

We don’t take the view that everyone is the same and will progress through a process at the same rate or have the same goals. Rigid, structured environments are not what we’re about; we think they limit innovation and individuality. When you have the room to be yourself we believe you have the scope to approach problems with a fresh perspective and be a contributing valuable member of our team. That’s why our improvement programs are designed with your career development, learning and personal wellbeing in mind.

DibbsBarker people are approachable and enthusiastic participants in the business of the firm, who thrive on challenge and enjoy pursuing excellence. We also enjoy sharing - our inspiration and the celebration of our successes.
