Our Client:
Our client is a large and respected, dynamic organisation committed to the promotion, development and independence of its member groups and innovative thinking for and with them.

The employment relations team is well-regarded for its depth of knowledge and dedication to its impressive client group. The team is now growing and looking to add a bright and driven senior employment lawyer or Employment Relations Advisor to the team.

Reporting directly to the Employment Relations Lead, you will join a friendly team of 5 (including some with Fair Work Commission experience) in a broad client fronting and client focussed employment law and advisory role (a legal practicing certificate is not required), with some Fair Work Commission work on offer. This industry is not one that encounters heavily adversarial unions. Some negotiating and enterprise bargaining work will be available.

You will interpret and advise on legislation, and provide members with information about and assistance with general principles of employment law and human resource management. You should also enjoy developing and participating in briefings/seminars/workshops/webinars covering employment relations and human resource management issues.
This organisation and particularly this team prides itself on being a collaborative and truly nice place to work. There is some work from home flexibility.

The ideal candidate will be a senior (4+ years of experience) employment lawyer or advisor with experience gained at a well-regarded firm or company. You will be able to hit the ground running and have broad experience.
