We are looking for a solicitor with 1-2 years PQE to join our Employment team

Simpson Western is a leading law firm, located in Auckland's North Shore.  Based in Takapuna, your work day will be just seconds from the beach, shops and cafes, and you will be able to enjoy the great lifestyle and work-life balance which this location and our firm offers!

Our work focuses on providing exceptional client service with an emphasis on building strong client relationships.  Simpson Western encourages junior staff to be a part of our client-facing relations and you will be involved in our high level and diverse employment matters from the outset.  You will work on a range of matters - acting for small to large business clients and mid to senior level employees, many of whom have longstanding relationships with our firm.  All this work is done alongside an experienced Partner, in a collaborative team environment.

Wider than the Employment team, Simpson Western has a culture and staff that exhibit high levels of integrity, demonstrate initiative and proactivity and encourage open and supportive workplace relations.  Our firm appreciates the value of a workplace where staff are acknowledged, appreciated and encouraged to develop into their best version of a lawyer.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Minimum 1-2 years PQE;
  • Experience in Employment Law;
  • Strong business understanding and ability to offer practical commercially-sound solutions;
  • The ability to build strong relationships with a range of personal and business clients;
  • Motivation and diligence in your work; and
  • An ability to immerse yourself into a high-energy and social team.

If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.  Please send your CV and covering letter via email to our Office/Projects Coordinator Lisa Bycroft at: lisab@simpsonwestern.co.nz
