empire group was founded in 2009 by our Managing Partner, Michelle Sneesby, driven by a purpose to support and inspire those around her in their professional lives by forming authentic connections. This founding purpose is now embodied by the empire group team.
In 2010 empire group diversified, opening the Corporate Division in addition to our Legal team.
Owing to early success, empire group had tripled in size by 2011. We also expanded our then Brisbane business, establishing a national foothold by opening offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
2015 was a defining time in empire group’s history, when our founder Michelle was diagnosed with breast cancer. Taking six months out for her biggest personal battle, she is now cancer free and the empire group is proud to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Due to steady growth across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane were on the hunt again for a new work home, which saw us move from Creek Street to 324 Queen Street to a bigger office ready for more people.
Having moved our headquarter offices to 324 Queen Street the year before owing to our rapid expansion, 2018 was a milestone year for empire group, our most successful.
We proudly reached 10 years of operation in 2019, and celebrated with our colleagues, clients, candidates and contractors.
empire group had become known as the leading Legal Recruitment Agency in Australia, with a stellar reputation for all aspects of legal recruitment including temp jobs, legal secretaries, Practice Managers, Partner and Associate, conveyancing jobs, admin jobs, paralegal jobs and lawyer roles across the corporate and government sectors.
With a global pandemic shifting the requirements of the workforce, empire group adjusted to flexible work arrangement models. As the market became more candidate-focused, empire group was able to expand their services in innovation, eDiscovery, technology, and business services.
In 2022, empire group turned 13! Stay tuned to see what we accomplish!
