We have a great opportunity to work part-time for Simpson Grierson, one of New Zealand’s leading law firms.   If you are looking for a part-time role and want to love the place you work, we need to talk.

We are looking for a Records/Library Assistant to join the Research Services team, working 22.5 hours per week.  Ideally, these hours would be worked over 5 days, but we will look at 4 days per week, including Fridays.


Records work includes:

  • Closing files and deeds;
  • Responding to and managing requests for files and deeds from both internal and external clients;
  • Destroying files;
  • Recording receipts and statistics;
  • Service development and review, and participating in team projects.

In addition to records work, this role will involve helping with current awareness, scanning, loose-leafing, checking-in books, processing new books, and document supply as part of the library service.

We are looking for someone who is methodical, meticulous, and accurate, with an excellent eye for detail.  You’ll be proficient in the use of Excel and Word, comfortable with learning to use our online database, and good at following procedures.

The role also involves lifting boxes of files. Great communication skills are also a must as in this role you’ll need to build effective working relationships with the Research Services team and our internal and external clients.  The team is all really nice, supportive, and collaborative, and we will ensure you are provided with the training and systems you need to perform at your best.

Prior experience in records and/or library work would be desirable, but if you are studying towards a qualification in these areas, or if you have a particular interest in records and/or library work plus a background in professional/administrative office work, then this role could be for you.

Simpson Grierson strives to provide a collaborative and innovative environment of excellence. We are proud of our diverse and inclusive culture and our reputation for putting people first in everything we do.
