About the role

Based in the beautiful and vibrant coastal city of Port Lincoln, you will have the best of both worlds, by living in a key regional city with a two minute commute to your office while having exposure to interesting, satisfying work. You will also have the unique career opportunity of being able to have a meaningful impact on the community, whilst working in a busy local practice. After work, you will be able to wind down by having easy access to surfing, fishing, amazing scenic runs, and family friendly facilities. This role will be the ideal opportunity for a Solicitor who is currently living in or looking to relocate to Port Lincoln.

  • delegating to Administration Assistants
  • working closely in a team to achieve strategic outcomes

About you

Experience in general commercial and property law, conveyancing, or wills and estates would equip you well for this position, and regional experience is highly regarded.

To be successful in this role, you will:

  • be able to demonstrate excellent attention to detail and strong organisational skills
  • have the ability to cultivate and maintain relationships with both new and long-term clients
  • be committed to ongoing learning and development
  • have the ability to communicate clearly and concisely
