Life at Shine
At Shine, we don't judge you or where you came from. What we do care about is where you’re going, and how we can help get you there. We are here to empower you to support our clients, as they stand up in the face of injustice.
We've built a place for you to:
Connect and be you
Join a team of authentic people who care as much as you do about standing up for the little guy, doggedly seeking justice, and advancing the law.
You’ll work with supportive experienced leaders who are invested in you. And you’ll be visible and valued for who you are and what you bring.
Challenge and be challenged
At Shine, you’ll dare to be different, questioning and challenging the status quo.
That’s how we stay ahead of the pack – for our clients, for better justice and for your remarkable career.
Achieve and grow
Here, you’ll find a powerful platform for success, from our proven operating models to our award-winning Centre of Learning.
You’ll discover the One Shine Way framework – your path to a career that means so much more. And you’ll be backed to seize opportunities and trusted to deliver.
Our people. Their stories.
We asked our people what you need to truly thrive here. They said empathy, sensitivity and to be someone who deeply cares.
Why? Because they want to make a genuine difference in people’s lives — it’s a privilege they take seriously.
