Legal Counsel


About us

We are Viva Energy, one of Australia’s leading energy companies. Every day we help Australians reach their destinations by making, importing and delivering the fuels, lubricants, chemicals and bitumen they need to get there.

We are the exclusive Shell licensee in Australia, and supply around a quarter of Australia’s fuel through our extensive network of over 1,250 service stations and through our commercial partnerships with some of Australia’s biggest companies in the aviation, marine, transport, resources, construction and manufacturing industries – we help industries reach their destinations too.

The diversity of our business creates real opportunities for our people. Our people are known for achieving results, working together and outstanding customer service. As a company, we also have a deep commitment to safety, care for the environment and passionate support for our local communities.

Together we are committed to building Australia’s energy future.

About the role

This role provides an opportunity to be a key player in a high performing in-house team, providing legal support to a complex industry-leading organisation with a national footprint.

You will be responsible for providing strategic, efficient, cost effective and commercially focused legal advice to a diverse range of businesses, in a fast paced, dynamic environment.

In this role you will collaborate and contribute across the organisation, in a role that offers challenge, variety and flexible working arrangements.

About you

To be successful in this role you will have 4-7 years’ PQE in general commercial/contract law gained within private practice or in-house, and hold a current Australian Practicing Certificate.

In addition, the following will be highly valued:

  • expertise in competition/consumer law;
  • project management and delivery experience and skills;
  • a proven ability to work independently, and to self-manage workloads and projects;
  • strong technical legal skills and knowledge;
  • experience with advising on complex regulatory matters and frameworks; and
  • excellent communication, drafting and negotiation skills.

Viva Energy, and the Viva Energy legal team, fosters a collaborative and supportive environment. As such, in addition to having strong individual delivery attributes, you will love working in a team, and supporting and growing with your colleagues.

The opportunity

We believe great ideas come from everywhere – and everyone. We employ fantastic people who want to make a difference. From day one you will have purposeful work, be challenged to grow, feel valued and inspired by what we deliver as a team.

Our culture encourages us to be ourselves. We believe diversity in the workplace is every bit as important as it is in everyday life and we are delighted to have been awarded the WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality for the second year running. We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.
