About the role
We currently have two vacancies for experienced lawyers to join Legal Services, based at PNHQ, to support the work of the Firearms Safety Authority. Although the positions are based at PNHQ, it is anticipated the successful applicants will spend time each week working from Rugby House, where the Firearms Safety Authority are located, and on occasions working from the Kapiti office.
The legal adviser position requires experience in working independently to provide high quality oral and written advice, often within tight deadlines. While the work is varied, and an ability to work under pressure and manage competing priorities is required, the primary focus of the roles is to provide legal support and advice to the Firearms Safety Authority. Experience working in criminal law, public law, information law and/or civil litigation would be an advantage.
The successful applicant must hold or be eligible to hold a practising certificate.
