Looking for a professional services firm that thinks and acts differently?

We’re always on the lookout for innovative, commercially-astute lawyers and HR professionals. We do things differently, and have broken the mould on what it’s like to work at a law firm.

Get in touch

You value:

  • Responsiveness and client-centricity
  • Commercial astuteness and the ability to give straightforward advice
  • Non-traditional thinking

We offer:

  • Flexible, work-from-anywhere arrangements
  • No time billing or recording hours
  • Fantastic clients and team

“The flexibility that Source offers is unparalleled – I work from home and am able to work the days and hours that suit me, while meeting client demands. Working for Source has allowed me to create a true balance between spending time with my young family and having a meaningful legal career.

Working in the corporate space with Source has been a game changer as I am able to deliver cost efficient legal services on a fixed fee basis which clients love. Source’s model means I don’t have to worry about time sheets and billing, so I can put client needs front and centre without worrying about what’s ‘on the clock’.”

“While Source is the most flexible workplace I’ve been part of, it is also the most supportive environment I have ever worked in. The support is amazing and I’m part of a fantastic team that enables me to bring my best and be challenged professionally.”

Commercial Lawyer

Are you a down-to-earth, pragmatic and talented commercial lawyer who is sick of time-billing getting in the way of creating meaningful, value-driven relationships with your clients? If so, read on!

Here at Source, we do things differently. Let’s start with what we’re not. We are NOT about:

  • billing our life in 6 minute increments and charging our clients for how long they talk to us;
  • wasting life’s precious moments commuting every day into an office – but we do have a great office in Sydney at your disposal when you want to work there;
  • making things complicated, being risk-averse, using legal jargon;
  • ego.

So, what ARE we about?

We’re about one thing: delivering value to clients.

That’s why we measure performance on client satisfaction, not time.

This means getting to know our clients and offering pragmatic advice and a supportive ear in whatever way suits them – whether that be a phone call or a short email.

We operate as de-facto in-house lawyers for numerous businesses (generally, SMEs) on a monthly retainer basis. This means you get to be an in-house lawyer for many businesses across many industries, rather than just one company.

That’s it. So long as you deliver that in a down-to-earth, personable way, we don’t care how, when or where you do it.

In return, we offer full flexibility (not flexibility with an asterisk!), interesting work and ‘freedom to fly’ (with mentoring and support by top notch senior lawyers available whenever you need).

What are we looking for?

We need a mid-level commercial lawyer to join our growing team and would love to chat if you have the following attributes:

Experience:
4-8 years PAE (but flexible for the right person). Ideally, you would have at least some in-house experience.

Technical Expertise:

  • Essential: Highly developed contract review and drafting skills, and general broad commercial experience
  • Highly desirable: Experience in the IT/ software industry and a good handle on IT contracts and understanding of privacy/data regulations

Soft Skills:
We need someone who is deeply commercial, who is comfortable giving pragmatic advice and making decisions – not sitting on the fence. You will be a self-starter, who can work quickly, communicate clearly and who is passionate about client experience. You will be excited about joining an established and growing start-up, where we aim to disrupt the traditional legal model.

Hours and location
This can be a full-time or part-time role (3-4 days per week). You can work from home, or the office, or both – ideally in Sydney, but we will also consider Melbourne or Brisbane or wherever you are. We mean it when we say we allow full flexibility.

Not yet convinced?

Source is an award-winning, innovative professional services firm. We have recently become part of Halo Group, which also owns Hamilton Locke (one of the fastest growing law firms in Australia). Opportunities will arise from being part of the dynamic and fast-growing group, and we are already seeing continuous growth.
