Casual or Part-Time Employment Solicitor

Location: Newtown, Sydney and WFH
Salary: Competitive depending on experience
Company: WorkLawyers
Telephone: 0411263614
Apps close: Sunday 29th May 2022

WorkLawyers is an applicant-focussed small firm, comprising 2 solicitors and 3 paralegal staff. We mainly do employment law but also do some contract, serious personal injury, defamation and general advice matters.

We are looking for a person who is an admitted solicitor with at least 2-3 years PQE or with a similar level of advocacy experience who is recently admitted or about to be. You will assist and take carriage of matters in our existing case load, mainly in the FWC, HRC, FCFCA, FCA , NSWDC and NSWIRC.

The position is offered on a casual or part-time basis 2-3 days per week plus regular extra hours to manage peaks in work and with a view to converting to full-time down the track.

We offer an informal and collaborative culture without a dress code, billable hour budgets or massive egos.

We are looking for someone who can handle swearing in the office, dealing with competing and occasionally crushing deadlines and the big-end of town lawyers without too much angst.

If you work well in a fast paced environment, where you will be expected to know your stuff (sooner rather than later) and get outcomes for clients without drama, this role is for you.

First Nations people are particularly encouraged to apply, so too are those returning to the workforce and seeking to step into the shallow-end first.
Please apply by email with a maximum 2 page cover letter and 4 page maximum resume.
