  • Enjoy fantastic benefits and learning and development opportunities, as well as exposure to complex projects and matters

Are you a hardworking and enthusiastic graduate, who exercises sound judgement, is analytically-minded and demonstrates exceptional attention to detail?  Are you seeking a role that will engage and challenge you, in a complex, regulated industry?

Statewide Super is the largest and leading South Australian Industry Superannuation Fund providing expert superannuation advice to over 137,000 members. We manage in excess of $9 billion in funds and have a clear focus on helping Australians save for their retirement.

We have a unique opportunity available for a Graduate Legal Counsel to join our exceptional team. The role will be best suited to a Law graduate, who is keen to apply their knowledge and support the business in ensuring all activities are conducted in line with international best practice and within our legislative obligations.  

With an impeccable eye for detail and ability to analyse, interpret and apply legislation, undertake research, collate information and build strong stakeholder relationships, the Graduate Legal Counsel is responsible for undertaking the following duties including, but not limited to:

  • Monitoring and analysing proposed and new legislation and regulatory developments from process, product and systems perspectives.
  • Supporting the team in researching and analysing key regulatory changes, gathering evidence and collating information across the business.
  • Supporting the team in ensuring Product Disclosure Statements, Annual Statements, Annual Reports, Financial Services Guides, Significant Event Notices and other client communications are technically accurate and meet the Fund’s obligations under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (Cth).
  • Reviewing and updating member communications, marketing materials and press releases to ensure they are accurate and meet with the Fund’s legal obligations.
  • Researching and drafting papers and policies for Board and Committee consideration.
  • Developing fact sheets and guidance notes for use by member-facing staff.
  • Supporting the development and facilitating internal staff training sessions and programs.

To be considered for this role candidates will need:

  • Relevant degree in law
  • Knowledge of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and/or Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (Cth) (desirable)
  • A can-do attitude and a desire to work in a complex, rapidly changing and stimulating environment  

The successful candidate will be provided with training and ongoing mentoring to enable them to hit the ground running. In addition to this, Statewide Super supports the growth and development of employees with a tailored learning and development program, which is available to all employees.

If you work with us, you will be working with a group of people who love doing what they do. We value integrity, respectful relationships and collaboration and, above all, are member-focused.
