This variety allows our clerks to experience the full breadth of corporate work available, thereby helping them to understand their strengths and passions and to make an informed decision when it comes to starting a full time graduate position.

At Hazelbrook you will have direct client contact from the get-go, the opportunity to build deep relationships and networks, greater responsibility and genuine progression.

You will be commercially minded and want to truly understand the drivers of your clients and the environments in which they operate. You must be interested in genuinely getting to know your team members, clients and professional partners, and have the social skills and attitude to deliver exceptional service.

You will know the importance of immaculate presentation and attention to detail, and the ability to manage competing priorities and deadlines.
