Our client is looking for a senior lawyer with gravitas and good judgement to join their high performing and busy team. This role is varied and best suited to a talented multi-tasker who is comfortable working in a flexible and dynamic work environment. Covering Australia and New Zealand, an early starter with the ability to travel for work is preferable.

Supporting the General Counsel Australia & New Zealand as Senior Legal Counsel for all the businesses across the Oceania cluster, you will be immersed in a full range of legal work ensuring BAU runs smoothly.  The bulk of the work is contractual, and you will also review consumer facing materials with regulatory colleagues. This is a demanding role for a senior lawyer who will be expected to play a leadership role in IP and build their own network across the company and within the global legal team.

To succeed in this role, you will need:

  • To be a qualified lawyer with at least 8 years PQE, ideally including top tier law firm experience
  • Previous in-house experience ideal, however not necessary
  • Strong commercial contracts experience, consumer law experience would be useful but is not necessary

  • Ability to set own agenda and manage workflows working at pace to provide high quality, pragmatic, commercially astute legal advice
  • Strong relationship building and communication skills essential
