To $90,000pkg + disc. bonus

This is a full-time permanent opportunity for an experienced Legal Secretary / Legal EA to join the Sydney office of a global law firm in a varied legal support position. 

The Firm

This firm has 15 international offices and is a leading player in its specialist market. 

The firm’s Sydney office has a team of just 50 people, yet it is backed by the impressive infrastructure you would expect from a large international firm. Therefore, this opportunity will allow you to join a close-knit team and still have the benefits and security of being employed by a global firm.

The team is welcoming, social and the work is fast-paced. The firm’s legal support professionals work together well as a unit, and the Sydney team are based in a beautifully appointed office in the heart of the CBD.

The Job

You’ll support a relatively newly promoted Partner whose Employment and Workplace Safety practice is going from strength to strength.

The Partner’s small team includes junior lawyers and an SA, but your main focus will as the right-hand person, the busy Partner. 

The team’s client base includes leading Australian corporations and focuses on dispute resolution and litigation. 

There is both EA and legal support involvement. 

About you
To be suited to this opportunity:

  • You will be an experienced legal support professional, offering experience as a Legal Secretary / Legal PA or Legal EA;
  • Your experience will ideally have been gained within an area of commercial litigation;
  • Your strong legal support background will be backed by more generalist EA skills, including diary and email management.

Above all, you’ll be a legal support professional who is excited by fast-paced work and wants to work in a professional environment where quality work is well-rewarded. 

What’s in it for you?

When you start working at this firm, you’ll join a welcoming and cohesive team of professionals who work together well and will be supportive of you as the newest team member. 

Your workload will be varied, allowing you to use your legal secretarial and EA skills to support a team with genuinely interesting files.

Whilst you’ll be joining a close-knit and inclusive Sydney team, you’ll also become part of a large global law firm that rewards its staff well and has impressive systems and technology. 

And, at this global firm, *all* staff are eligible for discretionary bonuses – not just the lawyers!  

This is an exciting and well-rewarded opportunity that won’t be on the market for long.
