Sparke Helmore Lawyers is a truly integrated national firm that looks to the future. Established in 1882, we have over 800 people flexibly working from nine offices across Australia. We offer the security and history of a long-established firm with the excitement and opportunity for growth. We operate in a way that puts our clients and our people at the heart of everything we do - we're proud to be described as being down to earth, practical and easy to deal with.

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our newly created legal support team based out of our Darwin office and servicing our legal teams nationally.

This is an exciting opportunity to commence your career in a national law firm as part of a progressive and supportive team. As this is an entry-level role, full training will be provided to the successful candidates, so while some previous work experience will be advantageous; office or admin experience is not essential.

  • Creating client records and files
  • Closing and archiving completed files
  • Data entry
  • Client billing
  • Printing, scanning, photocopying and collating of documents
  • Supporting internal office services such as deliveries, maintenance of staff areas and consumables and relief support for reception and mail room

These roles are suited to applicants who have an interest in a career in Business Administration and legal support.

The successful applicants will be enthusiastic and open minded. They will demonstrate strong attention to detail and recognise the importance of process. They will be proactive, task oriented, motivated to always do their best and take pride in producing quality outcomes.

This presents an excellent entry level opportunity and will provide you with the skills to become a competent administrative support professional. The team have a strong focus on continual improvement and operational efficiency so an interest in technology and automation would be a plus.

This is a newly created team and the successful applicants will communicate with a broad range of internal customers including senior administrative staff and legal teams. The successful candidates will require excellent oral and written communication skills to assist in establishing a reputation of quality output and high performance from this newly created legal support team.

We also participated in the Diversity Council of Australia's biennial Inclusion@ YourWork Index in August 2019 and off the back of our strong performance across the six key areas (Awareness, Engagement, Inclusive Organisational Climate, Inclusive Leadership, Inclusive Team and Exclusion) were recognised as an Inclusive Employer.
