Job description

The Firm & Opportunity

Opportunity to develop your mediation, ERA and advocacy experience in a well-established small practice. As employment law specialists, our client works with a diverse clientele of small, medium and large businesses across the full spectrum of employment law matters. Led by an experienced partner, you will have direct mentorship and guidance to help you hone in on your technical skillset as well as the independence to run your own files where you're able to. The team environment is friendly, down to earth and they share a genuine passion for the work that they do. 

In this role, you'll be involved in both contentious and advisory employment law matters, representing a mix of employee and employer clients across a range of sectors. The work is varied and no two days will be the same - you will work on restructuring advice, disciplinary investigations, dealing with PG claims, bullying and discrimination-related matters, policy-related work, and helping prepare for mediations and ERA Hearings. You'll be able to develop your research, drafting and advocacy skills in this role, learning from an employment law specialist.

About You:
  • 1+ years PQE in employment law (if employment law forms part of your general litigation background, but you'd like to specialise in employment law, then we'd also like to consider you);
  • Mediation experience would be viewed favourably;
  • A genuine interest in building your employment law career; and
  • Strong academic record with at least a B average in your LLB. 
Perhaps you're looking for greater hands-on and advocacy based employment law experience, or maybe you're looking to specialise in this area - either way, get in touch to find out more. We'd be interested to chat with those looking to start a role in the new year as well.
