We believe that great people attract great people.

In addition to vacancies and new roles to cater for our continued growth, some of our best hires have joined the firm when we haven't had a published vacancy.

With that in mind, if you are thinking about a new role or change, or would like to start your legal career, we are always looking for expressions of interest from lawyers at all levels who would like to join one of New Zealand's leading law firms.


Genuine work-life balance

Our culture is built around our core value "People Matter". 

We are a progressive law firm; a blend of big law and new law. We know that for our people to be their best at work, they've got to be their best away from work and that drives us to ensure we not only offer but also support genuine work-life balance.

Inside Tompkins Wake you'll find a team that's passionate about you, your professional and personal development and fostering great working relationships.

We offer flexible working because we know that what works best for you generally works best for us too!


We build great careers

We want to be a firm that gets the very best out of all its people and we’ll invest in you and your development. Every member of the T|W team is an ambassador for our brand and an integral part of our client service experience.

If you are an enthusiastic self-starter and would like to contribute as a key member of our team, we would like to hear from you!
