Full Time

Website Burgess Paluch

Australia’s leading specialists in legal recruitment.

Rare senior employment role, working across rated Partner & SC in collegiate team at gun boutique. Genuine career enhancing opportunity.

This is a rare opportunity for a 5-8 year PAE employment lawyer to join a  highly rated and collegiate employment team at a highly rated boutique. Working across a respected and renowned Partner and Special Counsel, they act predominately for a mixture of corporate and government clients.

The team is hugely collegiate and tight knit. This Partner is highly regarded, commercial and provides both autonomy over your own matters, and guidance when required. The role offers high end advisory and litigation matters. You will become a pivotal member of this high performing team and become involved in the whole gamut of workplace relations matters for their predominately corporate and government clients. 

This outstanding opportunity suits ambitious, driven and commercially savvy employment lawyers seeking to take a step up in their career. Our client doesn’t just talk the work/life balance mantra. In this team it is a reality. Due to an upswing in the volume of work, this is a newly created role, with the Partner keen to work slightly less hours, and with the Special Counsel seeking to be freed up to focus on more business development.

Benefiting from top-tier matters, enjoying working with your colleagues, and having that rare work/life balance are just a few of the benefits this outstanding opportunity provides. Our client has invested in technology, and with Covid heralding a transition to less time in the office, this role will see you spending approx. two days a week WFH.

You will already be employed in the employment law practice of a leading firm. It is likely that you are already at SA level, or on the cusp of promotion. This role suits a high performing employment lawyer who is commercial, down to earth, team driven, and with a strong client service ethos.
