About our Client

Founded in 1964, this leading public research University is one of Australia's most renowned tertiary level academic institutions.  Know for a highly collegiate and friendly working atmosphere, they have consistently been awarded as an employer of choice, with an outstanding commitment to their staff and students.

About the role

As a talented Commercial Lawyer you will play a key role supporting University stakeholders, working alongside accomplished practitioners within the University's in house legal team.  No two days will be the same and diversity will be the central theme, but some of the key tasks this role entails are:
  • Drafting and advising on complex commercial contracts and intellectual property, information technology and complex arrangements;
  • Providing strategic support to the General Counsel and the Legal Services team in the provision of legal services;
  • Providing professional and prompt advice on all legal matters, guidance to Council and the University’s senior executive, decision-making bodies and staff of the University on legal matters concerning the University;
  • Provide legal advice, conceptualise, develop and review University policies and procedures.
About you

You could already be in private practice thinking about that “first move in house”, or a Legal Counsel seeking a new challenge.  Either way we know you will have some great skills to bring to the table based on your general  commercial legal experience.  This is a highly diverse role and while experience within a University legal team may be helpful, we encourage applicants from all commercial private practice and in house environments to apply.

Taking that next step can be a tough decision and we know you will have some questions about this exciting opportunity.  For a full position description and confidential discussion please get in touch with Lee Ruddy on 0450363147.
