Community Law Waikato is seeking a Solicitor with a minimum of 1 year PQE.  Experience in family and PPPR would be an advantage.

Community Law Waikato is a not for profit organisation covering the greater Waikato area.  Our vision is fair and just communities.  We provide a legal service to those otherwise unable to access legal services. 

Solicitors at Community Law Waikato practice in a variety of areas of law including criminal, ACC, welfare, elder law, tenancy, consumer, refugee reunification, immigration and employment to name a few.  Our services extend from initial advice, through to representation of clients.  This is a very busy role with no two days the same. 

You need to be a quick learner and have the ability to take a holistic approach.  You must have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to relate to people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.  You need to be able to manage time effectively, balancing a busy work load in a fast paced environment.

We currently assist with elder abuse queries and provide some initial family advice as well as education.  This role would not involve substantial practice in family law or PPPR but knowledge and practice in these areas would assist with some of our key projects.

You would be joining a team of seven Solicitors which include two legal supervisors. 

If you would like to join our team, please send your CV and a cover letter telling us why you would be the perfect fit for this role. 


Closing date 8 February 2019

The application form will include these questions:
  • What's your expected annual base salary?
  • How much notice are you required to give your current employer?
