Job Description

Founded with empathy at its core and driven to ensuring the quality of life is improved for seniors in their own surrounds and hometowns, the Oak Tree Group really is the class act of independent living communities. 

The Oak Tree Group currently operates 31 Villages with another 10+ in various stages of construction. With an ambitious growth agenda, committed to delivering over double the current Independent Living Units, Oak Tree are building the capability of their corporate infrastructure. This role is one of the most exciting opportunities in Brisbane.

Reporting to Oak Tree’s Founder and Director, the Inaugural In-House Counsel will have a broad remit, partnering with the business to drive growth.
Playing a crucial part in the executive leadership team and the business’s rapid growth agenda, you will be a strong commercial operator taking broad accountability for key areas such as:
  • Property Law (Planning, land acquisition and conveyancing)
  • Construction Law (Contract law, sub-contractor management and litigation)
  • Governance and compliance
  • Providing strategic legal advice to senior leadership and the Board.
  • Acting as the intermediary with external counsel to manage risk for resident contractors.
 To be successful in this role you will be a commercial thinker, strong decision maker and consultative in your approach. Experience in commercial law along with property and construction is highly desirable. Whether this is your first step into an in house role or a step up from your current in –house role, you will be looking for an organisation who stays true to their founding values whilst driving a substantial growth agenda.
