Careers

Overview

At Page Seager our staff are our greatest resource and we have the same approach and respect for them as we do to our clients. Joining Page Seager means becoming part of a team where you are supported, guided and encouraged to grow your knowledge throughout your career.

We provide the tools required to progress in your chosen field and are continuously looking to expand our talent base with passionate people who value relationships with both colleagues and clients.

Career Progression

For practitioners at Page Seager we have a merit based Promotions Policy with clear guidelines and criteria to help you aim for your next promotion. There is no guess work involved to know if you are “ticking the right boxes” in your skill level. Each staff member has a Responsible Person who meets with them weekly and who will help them develop their skills, technical experience and performance to enable promotion.

It is anticipated that once a lawyer is familiar with the key competencies required for promotion, it will become clear to them whether or not they are ready for promotion.

Promotions are considered annually in April and practitioners are supported by their Responsible Person in their application.

For support staff we also have career progression opportunities, particularly Office Juniors who are able to undertake a Certificate in Business Administration whilst receiving ‘on the job’ training and support that positions them well should a Personal Assistant opportunity arise at the end of their traineeship.

Paid Parental Leave Scheme

Page Seager recognises the importance of an employee’s parental and family responsibilities and the need to achieve a genuine balance between work and home life.  Our parental leave policy is practical, flexible, and tailored to the specific circumstances of our business and all employees. Our aim is to ensure the smoothest possible transition into parental leave and then back to work at the end of the leave period.

Our policy includes a paid parental leave component that is in addition to any Federal Government scheme, whilst also offering the flexibility for staff to take paid leave at half rate and the ability to purchase annual leave in advance.

Secondments

Page Seager provides opportunities to work on secondment with some of our corporate clients gaining invaluable experience as an “in-house” lawyer. Secondments not only enable a client to deal with staffing challenges that they encounter from time to time, but they also allow our practitioners to better understand our client’s business and commercial objectives, which is essential to the delivery of effective legal solutions.

Secondments are both challenging and rewarding and give our practitioners the opportunity to experience being a lawyer on “the other side of the fence”.

Opportunities can arise for both short term (e.g. 1 month) and longer term (e.g. 3, 6 or 12 month) secondments that are part time or full time, where our practitioners could be one of a number of in-house lawyers or they could in fact be responsible for managing the in-house team as General Counsel.

Summer Clerkship Program

Page Seager offers Summer Clerkship positions to university students in their penultimate year during the summer break. This year the Clerkship will run from 30 November to 11 December 2020.

A Clerkship position gives participants a glimpse of practising law in a large commercial law firm. They spend two weeks rotating through each area of expertise, gaining insight into the areas of law we practice in. Each Clerk is paired with a buddy who supports and guides the participant through the program.

The Clerkship offers a variety of experiences, both in and out of the office. Our program is structured so Clerks can learn through a combination of hands-on experience, information sessions, training and observation. It is anticipated that Clerks will be exposed to client meetings, observe court proceedings, conduct legal research, draft correspondence and court documents, develop technical skills, use technology and research resources and have access to a range of lawyers from junior through to Principals.

We are looking for intelligent, motivated, energetic people who are interested in pursuing a legal career in Tasmania.  While your academic achievements are important to us, we also value different life experiences and interests.

The application period for participation in the Summer Clerkship Program will be open from 1 July to 31 July 2020. Should you wish to apply, send a covering letter, up-to-date resume and your academic transcript to recruitment@pageseager.com.au to the attention of Deirdre Boxall (Human Resources Coordinator). From the applications received, interviewees are selected, and interviews are expected to be conducted in early August.
