Posted 4 days ago

At Bare, we're passionate about transforming how the world thinks about death.

Our journey started in 2019 when our founders bonded over the shared experience of arranging a funeral. The more they looked into the industry, the more they realised how out-dated it was - resulting in customer experiences that were complicated, expensive and increasingly less human. From here, our mission to change the narrative around end-of-life was born.

We are now one of Australia’s fastest growing startups, backed by high profile investors, with a highly committed and experienced team. Whether it’s arranging a funeral, estate planning, grief support or doing complex estate administration - we combine empathy with technology to make end of life simple, transparent and affordable.

The Role

As part of our commitment to simplifying end-of-life, Bare has established a law firm (www.barelaw.com.au) that supports customers with estate planning and estate administration services. Although the services we offer a similar to a traditional law firm - we look different, we talk different, what we offer is different. And we're looking for a paralegal to join us on the journey!

What would you do?

  • Provide customers with practical (and empathetic) support and advice through the estate administration process
  • Managing customer files end-to-end, ensuring all elements of the estate administration process are completed efficiently
  • Draft documents and correspondence to clients, Courts and a variety of organisations
  • General administration work including receipt and sending of mail, filing and copying documents
  • About you?

  • You have experience as a paralegal or legal clerk (ideally within wills & estates law - though not essential)
  • You have outstanding communication skills, and the ability to quickly build rapport and trust with customers
  • You are task-driven with a strong attention to detail
  • You are happy to go the extra mile to ensure that we're delivering best-in-class customer service
  • You've got an interest in tech startups, and are excited to join us at the ground floor!
  • What's in it for you?

  • A friendly, supportive environment - people love what they do at Bare
  • A completely flexible working environment (with startup perks!)
  • Amazing opportunities for personal growth and career development (we'd love to progress our paralegals into lawyers!)
  • Above average remuneration package with performance bonuses
  • The ability to make a real difference - we're taking on an industry and we want to leave a dent!
