ILANZ, In-House Lawyers Association of New Zealand

In-house Principal Legal Advisor - Richmond

Reference: 4121321

Do you love thinking outside the box and want to put your agile lawyering into practice within an organisation with a real sense of community purpose?

Then look no further than this full time role based in the beautiful Tasman District.

As a qualified and experienced professional you'll deal with a broad range of Local Authority activities and business issues, such as reviewing commercial contracts, managing litigation, and advising on public law and legislative compliance issues. It's also highly likely that you'll be called on to deal with issues in areas of law that you are not familiar with.

The role is probably best suited to a senior level lawyer, who enjoys supporting peers, building strong relationships across the business, providing pragmatic solutions and making the right judgement calls. A proactive, collaborative approach, and a 'can do' attitude will be your key to success.

The following specialist experience would be helpful, but is not essential:

  • Experience working in a public sector legal team
  • Experience working in the commercial or public law teams in a private law firm
  • Experience as an in-house commercial lawyer in a private sector entity

We know our strength comes from our people, working together as one team to create results. When you join us, you're getting involved first hand, and contributing to crafting the Tasman community. We're diverse and dynamic - there's always new and interesting projects to get stuck into, and we love creating opportunities for our people to get involved in it all.

In return, we offer ongoing professional development, a variety of challenging and interesting work, relocation assistance and a benefits package suited to your preferences.
