Hospitality New Zealand is a trade association, representing cafes, bars, restaurants, taverns, off-licences and, under our newly created AccommodationNZ brand, hotels, motels, luxury lodges and backpackers throughout New Zealand. 

We are looking for an in-house lawyer to provide legal advice to hospitality and accommodation operators.  The major focus is on employment, liquor licensing and commercial leasing advice.  The successful candidate will also be responsible for providing support to Hospitality New Zealand’s eight Regional Managers around New Zealand, advocating the Association’s position in various fora, and manage and support our Junior Solicitor.

The successful candidate will have strong technical skills but also an outgoing personality able to engage with a wide range of stakeholders.  Ideally you will have had experience with employment relations, including mediations; expertise in the hospitality sector is preferable and you will have strong people skills.  This is a challenging and interesting role for a legal practitioner.

The In House Lawyer operates from our National Service Centre in Wellington, but there is a requirement to travel throughout New Zealand regularly.

Applications Close: 30-August-2019
