Are you a Legal Secretary (Intermediate or Senior level) looking for a change from the traditional law firm environment - and looking for a genuine work/life balance and a fantastic down-to-earth "normal" group of people? Then don't miss this VERY rare role within this CBD Inhouse Legal Team....
Working in the area of Insurance Litigation, you will be part of a delightful, friendly and very down-to-earth team of 20 people. Your days will be packed with variety - and you'll never know what's coming up next as things happen and change fast in this interesting role!
This role is working predominantly for one Senior Lawyer (ex Top Tier), but helping out the rest of the team when time permits (as well as other departments). The Lawyer is described as absolutely lovely, and she genuinely cares about her PA. She is very busy and in need of a "right-hand person" to help her in all aspects of her busy day.
There's not a lot of dicta-typing (mainly medical notes) - instead she will train you to draft your own legal documents and correspondence from precedents. You'll also be liaising with Medicare, Centrelink etc; manage diaries; arrange flights and accommodation; prepare court books; and also carry out less taxing tasks such as scanning, copying and dealing with emails. As she is regularly Interstate, you will also "hold fort" when she's away and keep everything running as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
To be suited to this position you will be an experienced Legal Secretary and ideally have a good Litigation background - and if you've worked in Personal Injuries or Insurance Litigation then even better! There's a large amount of files with lots going on at any one time, so you'll be someone who is well organised and can prioritise things. However, although it's busy, it is by no means a pressure cooker environment and there's a strong focus on teamwork so when it gets extra-busy you can always call on help! You'll be well rewarded in this role with a salary on offer between $60,000 and $70,000 package - plus staff benefits including on-site gym, monthly Roster Day Off, in-house training and workshops, external training courses, yoga, pilates - and lots more! Inhouse roles like this are very rare, so don't miss this one or you could be waiting a long time for the next one!
