LAWYERS – OPPORTUNITIES IN NEW ZEALAND

Origin Legal is working in collaboration with an Auckland-based legal recruitment consultancy to find high-quality legal professionals with an interest in joining one of New Zealand’s most prestigious law firms.

Opportunities exist for:

  • Banking & Finance Lawyers (General Finance or Project Finance)
  • Corporate Lawyers (M&A, Private Equity, Investment Funds)
  • Commercial Technology Lawyers (non-contentious TMT, IP)
  • New Zealand Lawyers (returnees in all practice areas and at all levels)

The firm can sponsor overseas lawyers and is interested in hearing from UK, Australian and South African qualified lawyers, as well as New Zealand lawyers returning home after working overseas. The roles may suit someone looking for a permanent move or equally, those who are keen to spend a couple of years working in a top-tier law firm whilst enjoying life in one of the world’s most desirable locations.   

We are interested in hearing from applicants at all levels from Newly Qualified (with a two-year training period) to Senior Associate, with the greatest level of demand in the NQ-4 years’ PQE (in UK terms).

The New Zealand market is recognised globally for the quality of its leading law firms and the calibre of lawyers it produces. Experience gained in New Zealand is respected throughout the world and a stint here will provide an outstanding platform for your longer-term career. 

Initial interviews by VC, but with several Partners visiting London in the coming weeks in person interviews can also be arranged.
