Senior Solicitors

Want to be at an agency at the forefront of New Zealand’s response to the global pandemic? Up to the challenge of driving the Ministry as the system lead for transport, helping create innovative solutions in a truly collaborative way? This role is for you.

We are looking for two experienced senior solicitors to join our highly-skilled and close-knit team – we have both a permanent and fixed-term role (18 months) available. Ideally you’ll come with at least 4 years’ experience, be skilled in developing legislation and have other skills and experience – good commercial/corporate experience would be desirable.

You’ll have a law degree, the ability to hold a practising certificate and be able to engage with and influence others across a range of disciplines. You will know what partnership really means, enjoy leading where this helps achieve the right outcome, and want to be part of the bigger picture.

This is an exciting opportunity to grow your skill set and make a real contribution to New Zealand's transport system, during unique and challenging times.

If this sounds like you we’d love to hear from you. For a confidential discussion about the role, contact Brendan Booth, Chief Legal Adviser on 027 574 4391 or email for further information.
