  • Leading Australian law firm
  • Rare opportunity to lead the firm's Employment, IR + Safety Practice
  • Partner, Senior Associates and Special Counsels should apply!
The Firm

Our client is a leading national law firm with an exceptional reputation.

They offer fantastic work, career progression and benefits in a highly collegiate environment that fosters personal and professional development.

Candidate and market feedback regarding this firm is consistently outstanding. We have placed many happy people with this firm over the years!

The Role

An exceptionally rare opportunity has become available for a senior employment, IR and safety lawyer to manage and develop the firm's Brisbane workplace practice.

This is a terrific opportunity for someone, with at least 5 years' PAE in employment, IR and safety, to take the next step in their career and join as a junior Partner, Special Counsel or Senior Associate depending on experience. 

The team currently advises on all aspects of employment, IR & safety for a range of fantastic corporate clients (including clients in financial services, high profile employers and government agencies to name a few).

The practice is litigation focused but of course also services clients in respect of 'front end' matters. You can expect to step into a very broad, interesting and busy practice!  

We can't emphasise how rare this kind of opportunity is. Normally such a role would require a large transportable practice of clients - this is not required for this position!

About You

You will possess a minimum of 5 years' PAE in employment, IR and safety gained within a well respected law firm. You will have a commercial approach and the energy and desire to continue to develop your practice and help the firm to continue its growth path and achieve its goals for this team.

The ability to mentor and supervise lawyers and strong business development skills are also essential.

Flexibility is on offer in this position, however realistically a 4 day per week commitment would be necessary for success.

We look forward to receiving your application!
