Working at MV: The MV difference begins on day one
Being “MV” is about being a team player, working hard, and contributing to our community.
Our buddy program for new people, pairs you up with a more experienced MV’er, someone to show you the ropes, give you a few tips and maybe even share some good local coffee shops!
Valuing our people
We are committed to our people and reward them for their contribution.
Check out what our people say about working at MV.
We firmly believe that providing excellent legal service starts at home. We offer all our people a free Will. This means that our team have experienced our legal services first hand and have the important legal record of how they would like their assets distributed.
Salary, Rewards and Incentives
At Meyer Vandenberg, we offer our people competitive salary packages, benchmarked against industry standards, carer and other special leave programs, and incentives.
We provide corporate discounts including financial planning and tax solutions.
Flexible work practices
We encourage our people to work flexibly to suit their personal commitments and we actively support them to balance these with work. We have team members and suppliers in regional centres across Australia.
One of the great things about working for a large local firm is our network. Our people solutions include our secondment and recruitment business MVR. Where else can you consider truly flexible options like a career pivot, a secondment and other flexible solutions like working for a client?
Health and Wellbeing
Meyer Vandenberg’s health and wellbeing program takes a holistic approach to wellness, by employing a wide range of initiatives designed to equip our people with health, safety and wellbeing strategies.
While a career in legal services is rewarding, we understand the impacts this can have and we are committed to helping our people be the best they can be.
Complimentary seasonal fresh fruit is made available on a fortnightly basis, providing a free healthy snack option.
Once a year our people can access free flu-shots to ward off those winter colds.
For many years and many lunch hours at Meyer Vandenberg, you can always find a large group of our people having a great time in our staff café answering the daily newspaper trivia questions.
Our people are keen competitors. Our Ping Pong table is on call if you feel like a game. We recommend bringing your “A Game” to the table. Things get pretty serious in our ‘friendly’ tournaments.
In addition to the social fun, the firm offers a range of fitness programs and sporting activities through the year to enable our people to easily access exercise and to enjoy the company of colleagues in an environment outside work.
Activities include lunchtime yoga, tennis tournaments, soccer, netball, running and touch football. We host social events throughout the year like pool competitions and also have social club outings to the Opera and Movie nights.
Be the best you can be
Our Partners and team leaders take an interest in the continuous development of our people and their career success. We have regular technical, ethical, research, practice development, finance and business development training sessions to improve your understanding of these services and to grow your career and get your CPD points throughout the year.
Our values are lived – not just words
Trust, respect, integrity and passion – it’s the MV way.
