Early Careers

We aim to give our people continuous opportunity to develop, learn and advance at all stages of their career. This is done through exposure to significant clients and appropriately challenging work and the allocation of increasing levels of responsibility as well as through structured learning and development programs. We hope you see a future with us whether that’s to become a partner or deepen your knowledge and expertise in a particular area of our firm.


We believe in creating an inclusive and friendly environment, where potential can be both recognised and realised. Benefitting from our open plan office space and collaborative workspace, all levels of legal and support professionals benefit from the expertise and experience of their colleagues in their practice area. We embrace inclusivity and diversity and we take great pride in fulfilling our corporate social responsibility. We’re committed to working on wellness, focusing on both physical and mental health, whilst encourage all staff members to engage in our broad sports & social offerings.


Development is essential at every level and we provide newly qualified lawyers and associates with the tools they need to progress, along with the opportunity to do so. From our ‘NQ Bootcamp’ to the wide range of structured learning opportunities available, all of this is complimented with the practical experience of working alongside a partner they can learn from. Supported by our learning and development team, we place huge emphasis on continuous learning alongside bespoke learning solutions to aid your development.


Our firm has grown at an exponential rate over the last number of years and we have an enviable track record of progressing many to Partner in that time. Our people have the opportunity to work with an enviable client base, including some of the world’s leading companies and we have offered both domestic and international placement opportunities to associates as part of their development.

But don’t just read our words, listen to one of our home grown partners, Oisin Tobin, as he tells his own story about his career over the years in Mason Hayes & Curran.
