Banking & Financial Services

The vast majority of Australia’s banking and finance market is located in Sydney with only a handful of organisations based in Melbourne or elsewhere. The international investment banks all have legal teams but sizes vary depending upon local presence and are typically smaller than those in other global financial centres. Candidates in demand will usually have no less than 3 years' experience and practice in banking, capital markets, funds management, superannuation or regulatory financial services. The number of available in-house roles in this sector has fallen over the last 12 months as organisations become more cautious and cost constrained.
