ILANZ, In-House Lawyers Association of New Zealand


Solicitor - New Plymouth District Council - New Plymouth

Here at New Plymouth District Council we are on a journey to become a leader in contemporary local government. To do this we need great people on board to ensure we succeed. Right now we are looking for a highly motivated and experienced lawyer to join our Risk, Legal and Assurance team.


This is a full-time position but we are open to negotiating part-time hours. In this role you will work on various legal matters in assisting NPDC managers to manage their legal risks and maintain compliance with legislative requirements.


The successful candidate will be familiar with a range of commercial, regulatory, and enforcement matters, as well as being able to provide practical advice and review of documentation. Ideally they will have experience practising in a local government environment but this is not a pre-requisite. A current practising certificate (or ability to easily get one) is required.


At NPDC we aim to create and sustain a truly rewarding workplace environment for our staff. We have put together an integrated Total Rewards Framework that spans Wellbeing, Development, Benefits, Culture and Recognition. The NPDC Total Rewards Framework provides a diverse range of opportunities and benefits to our staff.


If you're looking for your next career opportunity, in a role that will be varied and provide plenty of scope for growth, click here we would love to hear from you!
