What attracted me to MinterEllisonRuddWatts was their reputation for being the firm that cares. I saw this myself from the very beginning of the recruitment process.
Investing in our community
Giving back to the community is a big part of our culture. Across the firm our people are doing great things by volunteering, fundraising and providing pro-bono legal advice. We encourage everyone to get involved in our community investment programme which is both interesting and rewarding.
There are a number of regular volunteering initiatives at MinterEllisonRuddWatts, for example:
- Homework Help Club, where volunteers go to a decile one primary school in Auckland or Wellington to help children with their homework each week;
- Mothers Project, where a group of volunteers visit mothers in prison in Auckland and Wellington to help them maintain meaningful connections with their children.
Partner Stacey Shortall established these valuable initiatives, which are now delivered nationally thanks to a network of volunteers.
