About Allens

Allens is an international law firm with offices throughout Australia and Asia. Through an integrated alliance with Linklaters, we offer clients access to an extensive network comprising 40 offices in 28 countries.

Our legal teams are supported by leading Corporate Services teams including Practice Assistants, People & Development, Finance, Applied Legal Technology, Business Operations, Information Technology, Knowledge Services and Marketing & Client Services.

Our opportunity

We are interested in speaking to an experienced Practice Assistant / Legal Secretary to join our Corporate / M&A team on a 12 month fixed term contract. You will have a strong work ethic, and take pride in your work and have a solution focused and 'can do' approach. You will have strong team work skills and be able to work autonomously. You will be supporting two Partners (one being a Practice Group Leader and Board member) and other legal operatives so a high level of discretion and confidentiality is required. 

As a Practice Assistant you will be working alongside top calibre legal operatives, from graduates to partners. We are in it together, we are passionate about what we do, we are inclusive, supportive and ambitious and are driven by excellence.

You will hit the ground running with previous secretarial or practice assistant experience and will be rewarded with a close knit team and a rewarding career.  You will be ambitious, resilient and passionate about a career at our firm.

Specifically, your responsibilities will include:

  • Provision of practice management services to a portfolio of internal clients, including a partner and a team of lawyers;
  • Preparing and amending corporate documents and legal correspondence;
  • Data entry;
  • E-Billing and client reporting;
  • Diary, travel and expense management;
  • Management of meetings and telephone conference calls in an effective and professional manner; and
  • Performing other administrative tasks as required.

What we'll offer

At Allens, we’re focused on advancing our industry through equipping our people with the skills and experience they need to be professionals of the future. We’re ready to define tomorrow. Are you?

With us, you’ll be more than a business partner. Our people are specialists in their fields, but they’re also trusted business advisers who think bigger, more broadly and more strategically. Together, we solve complex challenges, and collaborate across teams to guide our internal legal client base.

We work across borders too, thanks to our alliance with Linklaters. This strategic partnership opens up worlds of opportunity for our business and our people.

In a rapidly changing world, we seek opportunities to innovate, embracing creative thinking, new approaches and emerging technology. And we don’t just use them to benefit ourselves and our clients – we believe strongly in driving positive change to do right by our community too.

Our teams are open, inclusive and encouraging, giving you the chance to learn and grow, but your development will be down to you. You’ll have the flexibility to drive your career, and we’ll recognise your achievements and hard work as you progress through the firm. Are you ready to begin?
