Sonder Consultants is a global legal search & recruitment consultancy with a unique and modern vision.

At Sonder, we deliver permanent, temporary and contract appointments. Our unique, professional and client-focused approach allows us to build and maintain long-lasting and trusting relationships with employers from international legal practices, global organisations, respected niche law firms and SME’s.


We specialise in both in-house and private practice appointments. Our aim is getting to know our clients’ businesses, their culture and how we can support them to reach their goals by providing the right candidates for their company. 
Our head office is located in Sydney’s scenic Barangaroo, and in 2019 we opened our first international office located in Cheapside, the historic and modern financial centre of London.

Our Services

At Sonder our main focus is around integrity, humility and uniqueness. We understand that each client’s recruitment needs are different to the next. We therefore offer a number of different recruitment services tailored to the specific needs of our clients. Each role we take on is given a unique approach and is delivered to a level or professionalism that exceeds our clients’ expectations.
