Job description

With PwC, you’ll ignite a meaningful career while being supported by a flexible working culture, innovative learning and development opportunities and progressive policies and benefits, such as 18 weeks paid parental leave for mums, dads and foster carers (no minimum service!)

Whether you are looking for full-time, a few days per week, or just need flexibility in working hours, we are open to discussing all options to find the right role for you.

What will you create?

You’ll help Australian businesses, not-for-profits and governments create value and improve the way they work. From digitising healthcare, to creating smarter cities and igniting our start-up industry, together we build trust in society and solve important problems.

Legal bring this to life by helping clients to navigate today’s complex legal requirements within their broader business need, including through leading and supporting employee entitlement and other Wage Trust engagements. The team also provides a breadth of business and market insight to deliver clients an unparalleled integrated service.

As a Special Counsel in our Workplace Law Legal team your impact will be seen by:

  • Leading and supporting multi-disciplinary teams performing Wage Trust engagements (extending to compliance with employee entitlement and employee tax obligations)
  • Assisting multi-disciplinary teams managing employees in complex transactions on a local and global scale
  • Advising businesses on compliance with Australian labour laws, working together with employment taxes, wage and data specialists
  • Partnering with clients to develop, implement and monitor best practice people and culture strategy and systems

About you

  • You have a background in Legal ideally with 10+ years PQE and are skilled in employment and industrial law with some experience in workplace law-related litigation or other disputes. You’ll also hold an understanding of dealing with employees and other workers and associated labour in commercial transactions.


  • Passionate about being at the forefront of change, you’re ready to help our Legal team deliver innovative, commercially aware solutions to our clients’ most challenging business issues.


  • You’re collaborative and enjoy working in an innovative environment. You’re a problem solver by nature and want to join a firm that values the kind of people who re-imagine the possible for their clients and stakeholders. Most importantly, you act with integrity and show care for the people you work with.

We’re living this commitment through initiatives including our Reconciliation Action Plan to increase Indigenous employment and employee-led diversity networks promoting cultural, disability, LGBTI and gender equality. At our core we’re a people business, which means you’ll be supported not just in your professional development but your personal growth as well.
