Save job

This role offers the chance to work on top-tier assignments for prestigious clients, embodying the ethos of 'big firm work without the big firm bureaucracy'. The firm is renowned for its supportive environment, demonstrated through initiatives like firm-wide birthday celebrations, weekly massages, and a social netball team, contributing to a close-knit community.

About the role | Mō tēnei tūranga mahi

As an Intermediate Employment Solicitor, you will play a crucial role in providing specialised legal advice and managing various aspects of employment law. You will have the opportunity to work closely with a supportive team while also being granted autonomy to handle matters independently. Your responsibilities will span across non-contentious areas such as assisting employers and employees with employment law processes and drafting legal documents. However, you will also have the scope to assist senior members on contentious matters, gaining exposure to both the legal and strategic aspects of each stage of contentious matters.

This firm stands out for its commitment to exceptional service without bureaucratic hurdles. Despite being a small team, they handle top-tier work for prestigious clients, showcasing their expertise and dedication. The firm fosters a supportive environment, that includes regular feedback and guidance from the head of the team. They prioritise understanding clients' needs and providing practical solutions, making them a trusted advisor in the legal field.

What you will bring | Ngā pūmanawatanga ōu

The ideal candidate for this Intermediate Employment Solicitor role will have significant experience in employment law along with a strong commitment to client service. With at least 2-3 years of post-admission experience under your belt, you are well-versed in handling non-contentious employment issues, with some experience in dealing with the more contentious employment disputes. Your ability to provide practical solutions without unnecessary complexity sets you apart. Moreover, your strong interpersonal skills make you approachable, reliable, and responsive - qualities that are highly valued in this role. The ideal candidate will be someone who aligns with the commitment to delivering exceptional service and will be a good culture fit.

  • Possess at least 2-3 years of post-admission experience in employment law
  • Ability to provide practical solutions without unnecessary complexity
  • Strong interpersonal skills with an approachable, reliable, and responsive nature
  • Experience in handling both non-contentious and contentious areas of law
