How you will make an impact:

As Junior Legal Counsel for hipages Group, your role will be to provide legal advice and support across the hipages business:  corporate, operations, marketing and technology. This is a great opportunity for a lawyer looking to develop their in-house legal career.  As a team of two, you will work closely with the General Counsel and Company Secretary.  hipages’ GC is a top-tier trained corporate lawyer with over 15 years’ experience in public and private M&A, fundraising and corporate governance.  

To be successful in this role, you must have an interest and curiosity in the broader commercial business, an ability to identify and resolve legal issues, simple and clear communication, strong organisational skills and the confidence to work in a fast-paced environment.  Excellent technical skills are also foundational to the role.

How you will add value:

You will work on: 

  • Legal advice and support across the hipages business
  • Commercial contract negotiations and drafting
  • Corporate governance work including ASX listing rule compliance
  • Regulatory application and compliance including for new products
  • Dispute resolution and management of small claims 
  • Corporate transactions

You will be well supported and have oversight from the GC, but the intention is that you will  work autonomously, have responsibility for your own matters and develop your own relationships within the business.

Innovation & Collaboration: are two important core values at hipages which both cannot be achieved successfully without a diverse and inclusive team. We don't expect you to be an expert in all areas and we are more interested in learning about you as a person, a team member and a leader. 

Research shows that while men apply for jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other minority groups tend to only apply when they check every box. So if you don't tick every single box above, but you think you would be a great fit for the role we encourage you to apply, we would LOVE to hear from you!
