Full Time Legal Assistant (Suitable for a Law Graduate)

Due to recent growth, Robert James Lawyers requires another Full Time legal assistant to join our team.

 

Interesting and challenging legal assistant work

The position requires you to have a "can-do" attitude. You will be responsible for providing assistance to partners and lawyers in both an administrative and legal support capacity. The expectation is that you attend to pressing administrative deadlines as a priority and then take on as many file responsibilities as your time and tenacity allows. The position will be what you make it!

Why a law graduate?

We have had success in recruiting enthusiastic law graduates who want to gain experience in a commercial law firm.  Previously, graduates undertaking a legal assistant role at our firm have been promoted to a junior lawyer position. We cannot promise that to everyone who joins us – what we can promise is that working with us will give you experience to develop your legal career, whether in the future it is with us or another firm.

Your experience

You are a recent Law Graduate and you must have previous experience working in a law firm.  We are looking for someone who is self-motivated and resourceful.  You need to apply yourself inquisitively and commercially to tasks.   You will be a proficient user of MSWord and have good legal research skills.  You demonstrate a collegiate approach to your work and are also confident working autonomously when required.

To be a success at RJL

The successful legal assistants at RJL are confident, thinking and hardworking individuals who support the legal team to provide great service to our commercial clients.  Our team enjoy the challenge of the legal work and the fast paced environment and being part of a friendly and supportive team environment.  Good mentoring is provided.

A bit about RJL

Started 26 years ago by two progressive lawyers wanting to make their mark, Robert James Lawyers is a successful business law firm based in the heart of Melbourne's legal precinct.  Our experienced energetic team has a reputation for delivering practical advice and innovative solutions to an established commercial client base.  We pride ourselves on providing our employees with interesting work and the ability to balance work and home commitments.

What's on offer?

You will be provided with a remuneration package commensurate with your experience.  You will also benefit from mentoring partners and have the opportunity to broaden your legal exposure.
