About William

William began his Corporate career working as a Legal Secretary in several Sydney law firms. He took a break from the Corporate world to pursue other interests; over the course of several years he worked in Music and Events, as well as taking some time out to travel overseas. Upon returning to Sydney, William realised a career in Legal Recruitment was a natural progression for him.

William started at Cox Purtell as a Talent Acquisition Specialist. He is now learning the full 360 recruitment cycle; utilising his specialist knowledge of the Legal industry, and the working relationships within Law Firms.

William spends much of his free time focusing on his fitness and training, and trying to trick himself that he can one day be a “morning person”. He likes to think a backup career as an international superstar DJ is still on the cards, too.


I had interviews with many other recruitment agencies, but Cox Purtell was the first place to say “How can we help you get work?” and within a week or so, actively kept in contact with me and placed me in a temp role. It is refreshing and much appreciated to be with an agency that really does want the best for me. – Lynda Sanders
