Job Description:

Gilchrist Connell is a specialist Insurance, Dispute Resolution, Workplace Relations & Safety and Corporate law firm, operating in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane.

We have a fantastic opportunity to advance the career of a 3-5 year PAE insurance practitioner in our Melbourne Office. The successful candidate will receive exceptional mentoring from two progressive Principals and a dynamic group of lawyers. You’ll work across a range of defendant insurance litigation and advice matters, including:

  • General and public liability matters;
  • Professional indemnity claims; and
  • Policy coverage and interpretation.

Our high performing team are committed to excellence for our clients as well as managing your own lifestyle and wellbeing. We have high expectations of our work but also an understanding of when to let your hair down and switch off.


Who are you?

  • Around 3-5 years’ post admission;
  • At least 2 years’ insurance law experience (preferably defendant);
  • You have confidence, initiative and ambition to cement a career in insurance law;
  • You work well in a team with the ability to manage multiple deadlines and stakeholders without comprising attention to detail, ensuring the success of those around you as well as your own; and 
  • You’re hungry to solve problems and cultivate quality relationships with our industry leading clients.

What do we offer you?

No video games, ball pits, etc etc. We’re not into cultural gimmicks, and to be honest, we don’t need them. Our culture is already something great that you’ll want to be a part of.

What we do offer:

  • Professional growth and the opportunity for you to be challenged in top quality and complex matters;
  • Genuine flexibility to manage your time – please, no hanging around in the office to look like you’re working hard. Be efficient, get your work done, and leave to enjoy your personal life;
  • Responsibility for and meaning in your work. You have to enjoy it, and be given the ownership to make decisions and solve our client’s problems; and
  • A competitive salary. It’s not unimportant, let’s be honest.
