Lawyer / Senior Lawyer

Location: Melbourne - CBD & Inner Suburbs
Company: Fair Work Ombudsman
Apps close: Wednesday 25th September 2019

Litigation experience will be highly regarded (workplace relations and regulatory contexts are preferred, but litigators with other translatable experience will be considered).

You will have excellent oral and written communication skills and be able to effectively convey your opinion, position or counter-position on a matter. You will also be expected to help develop junior lawyers’ capabilities and ensure their ongoing skills development.

You will need to hold a degree in Law from an Australian university (or overseas equivalent qualification) and admission, or eligibility for admission, to the Supreme court in your State and the High Court of Australia.

APS6 candidates should have more than three years of post-qualification practice experience.

Candidates at the Senior Lawyer (EL1) level
Our ideal candidates at the Senior Lawyers (EL1) level will possess the above capabilities and have more than 5 years of post-admission relevant practice experience. There is a preference for experience in the area of workplace law/industrial relations and for candidates with a background in litigation because the role requires a Senior Lawyer to directly supervise lawyers in these areas. You will be a team player and will ideally have skills in leading, supervising and mentoring more junior lawyers.
