ILANZ, In-House Lawyers Association of New Zealand

Senior Legal Counsel - Wellington

  • 12 month fixed-term starting ASAP
  • Join the 2017 Financial Services In-House Legal Team of the Year
  • Wellington CBD flexible working

Due to upcoming parental leave we now have an opportunity for an experienced Commercial Lawyer to join us here in our award winning legal team. As a bonus you will be joining an organisation that is committed to making Kiwis better off.

We are a busy team working on a wide variety of matters, across our banking, lending, insurance and wealth businesses. In addition to supporting the day to day business operations and priorities, we play a significant role in supporting the Bank's wider transformational and strategic objectives. We are looking for someone with strong general commercial experience and acumen, preferably in financial services, insurance or another sector with a retail customer focus. You will predominantly support our products team but will also be comfortable working cross functionally and collaboratively. You will be sufficiently experienced to be able to work autonomously on a wide range of issues, covering (amongst other things) product and customer experience design, customer contracts and the execution of new strategic initiatives and partnerships.

In return we offer you the kind of experience you only get in a small and agile team working on complex and varied issues in a friendly supportive environment.

We're building a different kind of bank, built for and by positive, straight-talking, hardworking people who stand up for New Zealand and are passionate about helping this country - and everyone in it - succeed. We're looking for people to own this mission with us and share our cause.

Please apply now. Applications close on Tuesday, 12 December 2017.

Interviews may take place throughout the application process.
