Why work at the CSO?

The work we perform is challenging, varied, interesting and often high profile, with important social, economic and political implications for the community. We compete with other private legal firms, not each other, and we actively encourage an open, sharing and encouraging environment.

Prospects for advancement are excellent. All solicitors have the opportunity to manage a practice relatively early in their careers, thus gaining valuable experience in client service. 

Solicitors can gain highly regarded experience across a broad spectrum of legal services. We offer a rotation program between our practice groups, and opportunities for secondments to client agencies.

Our training and development programs offer a diverse choice of internal and external training programs.

The CSO is an equal opportunity employer, and our staff enjoy excellent employment conditions at our centrally located Sydney office.

Not only do we offer flexible working hours, but also encourage a healthy work/life balance with access to ongoing training and education, massages, yoga, Pilates and counselling services. We firmly believe that a healthy life/work balance contributes to our success and the overall wellbeing of our group. 

The CSO continually improves its environmental awareness, and is a partner in the Office of Environment and Heritage's Sustainability Advantage program.
