Job Description

Are you an experienced employment lawyer looking for an opportunity to be part of the team supporting New Zealand's newest government department?  How about being able to share your talents with the agency which invests more than $20 billion annually in helping people to be safe, strong, and independent?  You can do both, with this senior solicitor role at the Ministry of Social Development and Oranga Tamariki Shared Legal Service.


The Shared Legal Service is looking for an employment lawyer experienced not only at managing personal grievances, attending mediation, and instructing counsel, but is also skilled at helping drive new directions through negotiation and collective bargaining.  The role will also focus on advising on health and safety matters, so experience in this area would be an advantage.  Understanding and helping achieve the goals of the two Ministries is core to success in the role.


The vision of the Shared Legal Service is to unleash the power of the group to best meet the Crown's legal needs. There will be challenges along the way, but we're excited by the opportunity and would love to hear from people who want to be part of this new way of working.  If this different model for government lawyering sounds like something you believe in, then apply for this role.
