Diversity

McCullough Robertson is an equal opportunity employer.

Not because we have to be but because we want to continue to be regarded as an Employer of Choice.

Supporting our people and enabling them to have successful and sustainable careers while having the flexibility to enjoy other aspects of their lives is important to us.

Our values are reflected in our suite of flexible work policies and practices and show our commitment to being an equal opportunity employer.

In today’s environment, when we’re all juggling extra responsibilities, (work and parenting, or caring for an elderly parent), it’s important to achieve a sustainable work life balance for our employees.

Our flexible work options are entrenched in policy as well as culture:

“McCullough Robertson has been awarded the 2015 Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.  We are proud of this citation which reflects our ongoing commitment to gender equality in the firm.”

Dominic McGann, Chairman of Partners

All employees are encouraged to play a part in developing and supporting a culture that accepts flexible work arrangements as a necessary part of conducting business.

Flexible work options include both formal and informal flexible work arrangements:

  • part-time work
  • job sharing
  • working from home
  • working full-time but with flexible hours
  • additional leave
  • leave of absence and short term leave
  • parental leave.

In 2014 and 2015 the firm received the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.  We are justifiably proud of this achievement and the work that has gone into making the firm a great place to work for women.

We have also been named Employer of Choice by the Queensland Law Society and Australian Legal Business.

Our Diversity Initiatives Committee and sub committees look at policy, events and other activities to seek continuous improvement in our processes, policies and culture - a culture which encourages and nurtures every individual, regardless of gender, age or background.

It's just who we are.
