NZTE is New Zealand's international business development agency. Our role is to help New Zealand businesses build strategic alliances and develop commercial relationships internationally.

Through a global network of 45 offices, we connect New Zealand businesses with the world, sharing opportunities, knowledge, experience and networks.

Legal Counsel - 6 month fixed term

Who we are
 
New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) has one simple purpose. We help New Zealand businesses grow internationally - bigger, better, faster - for the benefit of New Zealand. We thrive on providing our customers (NZ businesses) with world-class advice on how to expand internationally and helping them build the capability they need to succeed on the world stage.
 
As NZ's international business development agency with offices in 50 locations around the world, our work environment is dynamic, exciting and challenging. 
 
What you’ll be doing
 
In this role you will deal with a broad range of issues, such as reviewing commercial contracts, identifying and advising on Closer Economic Relations and World Trade Organisation issues, managing litigation and advising on legislative compliance issues. As part of our small Legal team you will be one of the 'go to' people for all of NZTE’s legal issues and it is highly likely that you will be called on to deal with issues in areas of law that you are not familiar with.
 
What you’ll need to be successful
 
The role is best suited to a mid-level Lawyer, but we will consider applicants with more than one years’ legal experience. Ideally your most relevant prior experience will be in a public sector Legal team, commercial or public Law team in a private law firm; or as an In-house Commercial Lawyer in a private sector entity.
 
This is a great opportunity for someone who enjoys supporting peers, building strong relationships across the business, providing pragmatic solutions and making judgement calls. A proactive, collaborative approach, and a 'can do' attitude will be key to success.
 
Why you’ll love working here
 
At NZTE it’s all about the people! We have an excellent work culture and our people are highly collaborative, practical and driven.

Applications close Thursday, 23 May 2019 at 4pm NZ time.
