Careers at Barkers

As a firm of young and energetic attorneys, we are always looking for young talent. The fact that the majority of the partners of our firm completed their articles at Barkers Attorneys is a testament to the firm's ethos of growing talent from within. When considering candidates for articles we look for people who are aligned with the strong work ethic and cultural vibrance of our firm. We try to identify candidates who have the potential to become a part of the Barkers team in the long term. We provide dedicated mentorship to our candidate attorneys and in return expect a high degree of commitment and personal accountability.

Our vacation programmes are a mechanism to aid us in identifying potential candidates early on in their career. We also assist a number of scholars with work experience where specially requested.

At Barkers Attorneys you are the benchmark of your own success.
