The role

This is an exciting opportunity for a Senior Associate to join the Firm's Major Projects and Construction team in Sydney on a full-time basis. You will be working with a focussed team advising on major and high profile construction projects nationally.

This role will see you will act for a wide range of public and private sector clients across the construction, infrastructure, and engineering industries, including high profile Commonwealth and State agencies.

Skills & Experience

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • Experience as a Senior Associate 2+ years, with a background in standard construction projects
  • High quality private practice experience and exposure to public sector
  • Strong academic ability and drafting skills
  • The ability to provide timely, accurate and commercially astute advice
  • A strong sense of purpose, ambition and a proactive approach to your work
  • Ability to travel interstate and internationally periodically

The role will have a particular focus on construction for the Commonwealth public sector.

This role requires a person who holds or is eligible to obtain at least a 'Baseline' and if required 'Negative vetting one' security clearance.

In addition to this, the Firm is looking for a resilient, self-starter -- someone who is able to work autonomously and is focused on attention to detail and providing an outstanding service to clients.

The Major Projects and Construction team

The Major Projects and Construction team is one of the largest dedicated construction practices in the Asia Pacific region, working on some of the most significant infrastructure, construction, engineering and contract mining projects in the region for public and private participants.

The team advises the full spectrum of participants, from owners, developers and project sponsors to Federal, State and Local Government agencies, financiers, project managers, consultants and contractors. They know and understand the practical, as well as the purely legal, aspects of what all participants in major projects want to achieve, and have a particular expertise in Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) in complex economic and social infrastructure construction projects. The Firm remains the law firm of choice for PPP projects and continue to undertake more work in PPPs than any other Australian law firm.

The firm

As Australia's leading independent law firm, the culture has been built by innovative thinkers. They are the driving force behind the Firm and if you choose to be part of the team your expectations will be challenged every step of the way.

The Firm is looking for individuals who will thrive under a spirit of independence. Dynamic personalities who can collaborate, innovate and strive for success within a collegiate culture. In return, the Firm will work to help you build the career you've always wanted.
