Our client is a Central Auckland based organisation in the healthcare sector that is modern and forward thinking in its practices. Due to growth, an opportunity has arisen for a Legal Counsel to join the legal team (on a 12 month fixed term contract) where day to day work will vary from drafting and negotiating contracts (e.g. procurement and IT related agreements), to advising the business on regulatory and compliance matters, risk management to company structuring matters. You will be supported in this role by 3-4 other corporate lawyers, where you can learn, but still be given ownership for the work you do. The team culture is vibrant, down to earth and a really fun team to be a part of.

You will be someone with:

  • 3+ years PQE (NZ qualified)
  • Experienced gained in the areas of corporate, commercial law and/or ICT and procurement matters
  • Commercial nous and ability to build effective relationships with internal and external stakeholders
  • The ability to problem solve and take initiative

This is a fantastic opportunity to transition to a dynamic in-house legal environment. You'll strategically partner with the organisation's business units to provide commercially sound legal advice. You'll have the chance to be fully immersed in the work the projects that the organisation is a part of.

While this is a fixed term contract, there could be the possibility the role is made permanent at the end of the period. This role would suit those that require some ability to work from home and flexbility.
