Permanent in-house Paralegal role. Be mentored by an experienced General Counsel. South-West Sydney location.
Your new company
This organisation and its infrastructure plays an important part in Sydney's local economy, contributing close to $1 billion to the region and employing over 4,500 people through 160 businesses located on its premises.

Your new role
An excellent opportunity has now arisen for a Paralegal to join its in-house team and provide paralegal and legal administrative support to the organisation. Reporting to the General Counsel while liaising with various stakeholders, you will:
  • assist in the preparation of contracts, legal correspondence and other documents;
  • undertake legal research, including research and analysis of statutes, case law and other materials;
  • assist with the preparation and distribution of Board Papers, minutes and circular resolutions;
  • ensure that all relevant registers are updated and maintained;
  • maintain appropriate record keeping and filing;
  • provide high-level legal administrative and project support.
What you'll need to succeed
You will have previous experience as a legal administrative assistant or paralegal, and ideally be in the process of studying a law degree. You will have knowledge and experience in administrative procedures, including record management with excellent attention to detail and analytical skills. In addition to a high level of interpersonal, oral and written skills, you will also have the ability to prioritise and complete tasks within required timeframes. Candidates with previous experience in property law would be well-regarded but this is not a prerequisite.

While there is a strong preference for a fulltime applicant, part-time applicants are also encouraged to apply.

What you'll get in return
This is an excellent opportunity for a Paralegal who is looking to be exposed to a broad range of legal matters in a commercial in-house setting. You will be a part of a diverse and inclusive organisational culture while also being mentored by a very experienced General Counsel who has an open and collegiate management style and who truly enjoys developing others.
