Legal / Employment Relations Advisor

posted on

Are you an experienced HR, ER or legal professional with a qualification in law, employment relations, immigration advisory or human resources? Or do you possess intermediate/advanced employment legislation and compliance knowledge acquired through experience or advocacy in a previous role?  

If this is you, the Restaurant Association has an excellent opportunity to join our friendly, collaborative and supportive Helpline Team. 

Being an employer-focused membership organisation, the Restaurant Association has a diverse range of services and resources available to our Members. As one of our Legal Advisors you’ll be assisting and advising our Members on a wide range of current topics, including employment relations, health and safety, human resources and other areas of industry compliance.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, customer-focused person, with excellent listening and problem-solving skills.  It is also essential that you have the ability to conduct research, have a thorough understanding of the employment law in New Zealand and knowledge about or a willingness to learn about other areas relevant to hospitality business owners in order to assist in answering our busy helpline and developing our resources.

Knowledge of the Food Act, Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act would be an advantage as would being a licenced immigration advisor.  A professional manner is essential for this mainly telephone-based role, however, there are many opportunities to meet members face to face as well so an ability to communicate well in person is also important. 

Working alongside our Senior Legal Advisors and highly experienced Team Leader, we can offer you the opportunity to be involved in a very rewarding role with a very high calibre team, increase your experience and give back to the community, in a friendly and fast-paced environment.

We are ideally looking for someone who can start immediately after the holidays, so apply by emailing your CV to for further information.
