ILANZ, In-House Lawyers Association of New Zealand

Corporate Solicitor (Part Time / Job Share)

Tauranga City Council (TCC) plays a key role in the future look and feel of Tauranga City and our success in meeting and managing the opportunities and challenges we are faced with will be driven by the quality and performance of our people.

The Legal Services team provides TCC with high quality legal advice and are TCC staff's first port of call for any legal query. The areas of advice are both unique and broad. We guarantee no two days will be the same!

We are looking for a confident self-starter to join our close-knit and friendly team. You'll be providing quality legal services across the organisation, therefore 5+ years' in-house experience is essential. We know not everybody will have local government experience, but if you do, that'll set you apart from the crowd.

To be successful in the role, you will have had exposure to a variety of issues, including contract and property issues. You shall also possess excellent client relationship management skills, along with superb analytical, legal and interpersonal skills.

Evidence of your superior prioritisation ability will be important as this part time role will need to manage several concurrent priorities at any time and ensure that deadlines are met and expectations exceeded.

This is a great role for a Corporate Solicitor looking to get a good breadth of experience within the local government sector, whilst contributing to the future of Tauranga, one of New Zealand's most desirable lifestyle locations.

This is a 20 hour a week part time / job share opportunity for a period of 12 months parental leave cover. A start date will be negotiated with the successful applicant.

 Note: It is essential that you hold a current New Zealand Law Society practicing certificate as a Barrister and Solicitor, or are eligible to hold a certificate.

If this opportunity is of interest don't delay - apply now! Applications close at midnight on Sunday 19th February 2017.
