With four major offices across Australia, their Melbourne office is the largest in the Asia Pacific region located in the heart of the CBD.


THE ROLE

Due to the current Legal Assistant retiring, this industry-leading law firm is seeking an outgoing and proactive Legal Assistant to join them in a true 1:1 position, supporting a Partner within their real estate team.

THE CANDIDATE

The successful Legal Assistant must have proven legal support experience in a reputable law firm and be familiar with billing. Exposure within real estate is advantageous, but not essential.

Due to this firm being open to what area of law you may have specialised in previously, it's important for you to have a can-do attitude and be willing to learn on the job.

The team within the real estate practice is outgoing and sociable so someone who is confident and personable will get on well.


WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU

This is a true 1:1 position supporting the Partner within an outgoing and social team, who regularly spend time with each other outside of work.

Due to large projects arising in the practice, there will be an opportunity to expand on your experience and take on Paralegal responsibilities. 

A salary of up to $80,000 package is on offer plus benefits including, discounted health-insurance, 14 weeks paid parental leave regardless of gender, flexible working arrangements and plenty more.
