If you are a Solicitor looking for a firm to settle down with, then this is the perfect opportunity for you. Our client is an award-winning and established boutique legal practise who ensure an emphasis on work/life balance for their staff and offer access and invaluable mentoring from the Partners & Senior Solicitors.

This is a progressive environment where burgeoning Solicitors are supported to succeed and progression pathways are open to those who are dedicated to growing their practise.

This is a specialised firm with the following areas of expertise:

Their office is comprised of 4 Partners, 3 Solicitors & 3 support staff.

The Employment Law team that you would join is made up of 2 Partners and a Principal & Senior Associate.  They are considered leaders in their field in New Zealand. They are looking for a Solicitor with at least 2 years PQE and a genuine passion for advancing in the field of Employment Law.

Depending on your experience and ability, you could expect the role to be made up of roughly 80% employment law & dispute resolution, while also undertaking research and dealing in Civil Litigation as required.

Our client offers a large and diverse client base, including public and private sector, large and small businesses, unions and individuals throughout New Zealand. They are particular about who joins the team and are flexible to make the role work for the right person. They will consider looking at a 4-day working week if that would best suit your lifestyle.

  • A current practising certificate
  • 2 years + PQE
  • Relevant experience and a passion for employment law
