Managing Lawyer

A unique opportunity has arisen to work alongside Victorian Traditional Owners and provide legal and strategic advice on corporate and commercial matters and native title claims and settlements.

Native Title Services Victoria (NTSV) is a not-for-profit organisation with an ambitious vision to resolve native title claims across the State. In the wake of the 2002 High Court decision in Yorta Yorta v Victoria there was a common view that native title as a doctrine would have little application in Southern Australia.  Since its creation in 2003, NTSV has challenged this view and worked with Traditional Owners to achieve five successful settlements under the Native Title Act and/or the Traditional Owner Settlement Act covering much of the Crown land estate in Victoria.

To maintain this momentum, we are looking for an experienced self-motivated lawyer who will be prepared take on a diverse workload to manage a multidisciplinary team and work with Traditional Owners to achieve their aspirations for community, cultural and economic development and land justice. This will involve providing legal advice and assistance to Victorian Traditional Owner Groups to negotiate comprehensive native title settlements, and advice to Victorian Traditional Owner Corporations on a range of matters including corporate governance and business structures, commercial negotiations and agreements, employment, taxation and trust  law, and numerous other legal matters associated with the implementation of comprehensive settlement agreements and managing complex corporations.

Working for NTSV as a Managing Lawyer is not a routine legal role. We are highly client-focused and are looking for a lawyer with exceptional communication skills who is interested in Aboriginal affairs and willing to meet and work with clients on their country to establish and maintain good working relationships.

The salary is negotiable based on skills and experience. In addition we offer the opportunity to maximise benefits with our salary packaging scheme. Our family-friendly workplace culture includes generous annual leave provisions and flexible working arrangements. We have a strong commitment to professional development and an active social club.

If you are interested in joining a small team of passionate people dedicated to having a real impact on people’s lives we would like to hear from you.

Applications should address the key selection criteria in the Position Description and provide a current resume which includes contact details of two referees.
