We transform inspiring visions into successful realities, offering innovative, collaborative, flexible, and proactive solutions.
About the role
Working with the Legal Team and reporting to the General Counsel, you will provide accurate, commercially astute and timely advice, particularly in the area of commercial contracts, continuous improvement of precedents, corporate governance and providing reliable support to the business as a trusted and valued advisor.
In addition to the negotiation, drafting, review and management of a variety of commercial contracts, you will provide high quality general corporate and commercial legal advice in the areas of commercial and construction law. While experience in any of these areas of the law is desirable, it is not essential and candidates from a range of backgrounds will be considered.
You have excellent technical and analytical skills, effective communication and negotiation skills, the confidence to deal with senior management and prioritise competing demands. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who enjoys engaging with people at all levels and developing quality relationships with them over time.
You must hold an Australian legal practising certificate and have approximately seven to ten years’ experience in either a private practice or in-house commercial environment or a combination of both. Flexibility to travel to our offices across Australia from time to time is also a requirement of the role.
If you are a self-starter, results oriented, committed to quality work outcomes, highly motivated and enjoy being part of a hardworking and fun team then this is the role for you!
