About Allens

Allens is a leading international law firm with offices throughout Australia and Asia.

We have recently been named an elite "band one" firm in 20 practice areas and jurisdictions by Chambers Asia Pacific 2019. This achievement caps off a year of working with clients on some of Australia's largest and most complex deals. 

The Opportunity

We know there is a lot of talk in the market about innovation and how firms are responding to disruption. We don't innovate for innovation's sake – we are committed to ensuring that we are delivering real, tangible results for our clients. 

Allens has worked extensively to transform the way law is practiced. We've recently been ranked in top 100 Most Innovative Companies Australian Financial Review, 2018 and won the Project Innovation category Property Council Australia, 2018 for our Real Estate Due Diligence (REDDA) App.

We are looking for a Project Analyst to join our Applied Legal Technology Department (ALT), in our Sydney office.

As one of the largest legal technology teams in Australia you will work alongside individuals with legal, technical and project management qualifications, providing you with exposure to a wealth of knowledge and experience.

The position of Project Analyst assists the Senior Consultants and Site Managers in the delivery of cost effective and efficient legal technology services which include matter related databases, electronic discovery solutions, virtual data rooms, document review solutions and paralegal solutions that enable legal teams to provide quality and commercial results.

Core responsibilities include:

  • Consulting to legal teams on all aspects of eDiscovery and VDRs;
  • Technical administration of databases and developing electronic information solutions;
  • Supervising and training team members working on matters;
  • The application of project management techniques including task based scoping, planning, costing, scheduling and risk assessment to respond to and manage work requests; and
  • Client and stakeholder management and developing networks within all levels of the business.  

What you'll bring:

We are seeking candidates with legal technology experience and a strong technical background.  You will have excellent written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills,  with the ability to provide consulting advice on matters.  Individuals should have the proven ability to work with people at all levels of seniority and be able to work as part of a cohesive team. As this is a 'hands on' technical role, you will have deep technical skills and a solid understanding of database technologies, particularly in a legal environment for litigation and due diligence.

Exceptional time management skills and the ability to deliver under pressure will be important in this role.  You will also be able to accept direction and understand accountabilities and responsibilities for quality work.  You will also be expected to contribute to a large national group. 

A degree or equivalent experience in legal information management, computing science or law is desired.   A strong background in project management, information management, information technology and/or law is essential.

What we'll offer

  • Our people are technical experts, but they’re also trusted business advisers who think bigger, more broadly and more strategically. Together, we solve complex legal challenges, and collaborate across practice areas and disciplines to guide our clients.
  • Working at Allens entitles employees to a wide range of benefits including a gym membership, discounted product and services, charity matched funding programs, health and wellbeing initiatives and fantastic professional development opportunities.
  • Our strategic alliance with Linklaters opens up worlds of opportunity for our business and our people through international secondments. Our global teams act as one, sharing knowledge and best practice approaches to help solve our clients' most complex problems.
  • In a rapidly changing world, we seek opportunities to innovate, embracing creative thinking, new approaches and emerging technology.  We believe strongly in driving positive change to do right by ourselves, our clients and our community.
  • We recognise that our people are talented professionals who lead full and rewarding lives, and we want to create an environment that inspires them to give their very best. Flexibility is standard, underpinned by mutual trust and responsibility. 
  • 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.
  • At Allens, we celebrate the unique insights our people bring to work each day. We know diverse teams make for better experiences for our people, clients and communities.
