Individual vacancies will be advertised but we are always open to expressions of interest from exceptional people.
Fitzherbert Rowe team members need to be client-oriented with an eye for delivering results. You'll need to be committed, knowledgeable about the law - and it helps to have a sense of humour!
The Manawatu is a great place to live and work. The city has first-class educational, sporting and health facilities. It is big enough to attract events, support a professional theatre and a stimulating nightlife. At the same time, it's less than 10 minutes to get to work, or a golf course, or to the start of a tramp through native beech forest and bush.
Fitzherbert Rowe is a modern and progressive employer. We expect a lot from our staff, but we encourage good work-life balance and are committed to providing our staff with the support they need to become exceptional lawyers.
If you're interested contact our practice manager Alan Croasdale.
