Legal
Source: uWorkin

JOB DESCRIPTION

  • Varied & challenging Construction-specific Caseload - Front & Back-End
  • Sophisticated Clients & Opportunities for Career Progression
  • Competitive Salary & Access Work Benefits + Mentorship & Pro Development


The Firm



A mid-tier Australian firm that is known for its incredibly collegiate and collaborative work environment, with supportive senior lawyers who are happy to mentor junior lawyers to maximise their potential.



The firm's Construction team is well-integrated and therefore it is imperative for the ideal applicant to be well-rounded: with both transactional skills and dispute resolution and litigation skills.



The firm is a big believer in maximising their lawyers' potentials and therefore is committed to steering their lawyers through a clear pathway to success and seniority over time.



The firm's pedigree means that it competes regularly with top tier firms for clients and work, as such, the matters that the successful candidate will experience at the firm will be challenging and cutting-edge. The clients you will be dealing with are equally highly sophisticated.



The Role



A well-rounded Construction Lawyer is required to join the firm's Sydney CBD-based office. You can expect to be working on a wide variety of matters involving major construction and infrastructure projects with a particular focus on dispute resolution and litigation, therefore, it will be expected that you have already been exposed to this quality of work, whether at a top tier, mid-tier, or specialist boutique firm.



Essential Requirements


  • Between 2 - 4 years PAE exclusively accrued in a top tier, mid-tier or construction-specialist boutique firm
  • Strong front-end and back-end drafting skills and strong technical knowledge of the Security for Payments Act
  • Excellent interpersonal skills: clear plain English communication skills and experience dealing directly with sophisticated clients


Benefits on Offer
  • Competitive, above-market salary minimum $90,000 plus super, subject to experience
  • Convenient office location in the CBD, close to law courts, public transport, eateries and shops
  • Opportunity to join a firm known for its low staff turnover and excellent work environment
  • Opportunity to work with and be mentored by experienced Construction Lawyers who are peer-recognised leaders in their field
  • Opportunity to join a large firm with resources to protect your long-term job security and career progression, subject to performance
  • Rare opportunity to join a large firm that is open to granting flexible work options
  • Additional benefits, including private health cover, and structured professional development programs to prevent stagnation in your evolution as an excellent lawyer
  • Opportunity to access a progressive law firm that embraces diversity and proactively contributes to the local community by way of a pro bono practice
