You will be a lawyer with 10+ years’ experience gained in either an IT/TMT team in a law firm or as an in-house technology lawyer and who is admitted to practice in Australia. 

In this role, you will be reviewing, drafting, and negotiating a range of commercial contracts with a strong focus on technology, outsourcing and telecommunications matters.

Ideally, you will:

  • have experience in technology matters within the financial services industry, however, relevant experience in other industry sectors will be considered;
  • have a commercial approach, excellent drafting, communication and negotiation skills and the ability to work independently coupled with a ‘can do’ attitude;
  • be a team player with the desire to provide quality client service to a diverse range of internal clients in a dynamic and highly collaborative environment; and
  • have an innovative mindset and be open to change as our team is always trying to think of ways to improve the way we work including through automation and the use of other technologies. 
  • While the role on offer is a 12-month contract to provide cover during a period of parental leave, we are a very busy team and there may be an opportunity to extend the contract beyond the 12-month period should the successful candidate thrive in the role and prove themselves to be a good team fit.

    If this sounds like you and you would like to become part of our team, apply today.
