Title: Administrative Assistant - Sydney
Company Name: Gilchrist Connell
Job Location: Australia, New South Wales, Sydney, CBD, Inner West & Eastern Suburbs, Sydney
Employment Status: Full time
Who are we?
Gilchrist Connell is a leading Australian litigation and disputes firm. We have offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane.
Our expertise is recognised through our regular inclusion as finalists or winners of national insurance industry awards and respected independent directories. In both 2020 and 2021 we have been one of only 25 firms recognised as an Australasian Lawyer Employer of Choice. We believe that partnering with sophisticated clients on high quality work and enjoying a rewarding personal life should not be mutually exclusive. The firm has a genuinely positive work culture, built on transparency in feedback, support of flexible working practices, leading support programs and employee benefits and cloud-based technology platforms.
The firm has seen rapid expansion over the last six months with a net increase in staff of over 35 percent. This expansion has occurred to meet a surge in client demand, which we forecast to continue through FY22 and beyond.
We have a fantastic opportunity for an Administrative Assistant to support our dynamic Sydney office. You will be working in a collaborative group, in their busy, predominantly medical negligence and general insurance litigation practice. Our 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.
With a successful practice already established and still growing, you must be hungry to assist our team in cultivating quality client relationships. We prioritise team success, and an attitude that we should all lift up those we work with – your success in this role will be reliant on your ability to engage with your colleagues and help grow our team’s practice.

What do we offer you?
No foosball tables sorry, or video games, ball pits, etc etc. We’re not into cultural gimmicks and we don’t need them – our culture is already great. What we do offer:
To be successful in this role, you will have at least 2 years’ experience in an office support role. You’ll have strong MS Office proficiency, impeccable organisation and self-management skills with a strong ability to prioritise your day and tasks. We also value a sense of humour and the ability to make the office an enjoyable and friendly place to work.
