Executive Officer/Practise Manager
Gillian Beaumont has been engaged by a large Commonwealth Department to recruit for a combined Executive Officer/Practise Manager position. This role will require the successful candidate to provide high level administrative and strategic support directly to the General Counsel, as well as undertake various managerial, human resources and financial procurement tasks.
The successful candidate will have experience in liaising with stakeholders of all levels and providing high level strategic advice. The successful candidate will have full financial oversight over the legal division, and experience in procurement, financial reporting and billing processes is therefore essential. Experience in leadership roles will be looked upon favourably but is not essential, as is experience in recruiting, training programs and performance management.
This is an exciting, complex and varied role which is ideal for candidates with a broad range of experience working within government. This is a fantastic opportunity to work within a wonderful team and develop a broad range of skills across a variety of administrative, legal, strategic and financial tasks.
This position is offered on a contractual basis until March 2017 initially, but there is the possibility for permanency. Legal qualifications, including eligibility to obtain a restricted government practising certificate are required.
