Senior Legal Counsel

If you live in Australia or New Zealand, you've likely heard of AMP. But at a time when society is changing, we are too. We're now a nimbler business with new leadership and thinking.

For us, these are exciting times. There's a real potential for big thinkers to help us redefine what financial services could be. And turn our legacy into something even more positive and powerful for the future.

Help people create their tomorrow, while you create yours

We help people with their banking, super, retirement and finances. Through upturns, downturns, recessions, and major life transitions. Every day, we help people see and make more of their financial potential, so that they can create their tomorrow. And we've been doing it for over 170 years.

If we do our job well, we genuinely add to the prosperity of our country and its people.

This includes advising how these obligations impact data usage, data analytics, and data retention, marketing campaigns and automated decision making. The role also includes advising on regulatory change in the privacy space, and the provision of training on privacy law.

The role also provides legal advice to AMP companies providing Wrap Platform business including matters relating to the ongoing operation and management of superannuation and pension wraps, IDPS and IDPS-like products, managed portfolios, managed investment schemes and the distribution of these products to retail customers and their financial advisers.

This will include supporting product development and other strategic initiatives, rationalisation of legacy product offerings, marketing and distribution, issuing offer documents, advice on relevant law, supporting senior executives and Boards, and advising on errors and incidents.

  • Advise the platforms business in relation to super and non-super platforms including new product development, management of existing product; product marketing, offer documents, investments offered through platforms, rationalisation of legacy product offerings, design and distribution obligations, service provider agreements etc.
  • Review client and adviser communications including significant event notices to members
  • Deal with AFSL licensing queries

What you will bring to the team
  • Minimum 10 + years PAE gained in private practice and/or in-house/on secondment
  • Expertise in privacy law
  • Expertise in law relating to super and non-super wrap platforms, managed portfolios and registered managed investment schemes

To be successful in this role you are an exceptional communicator where you "make the complex simple", collaborative stakeholder manager, results focused, analytical problem solver and decision maker. Your resilience and excellent priority and time management skills will see you fit into our collaborative team environment where you will have the chance to add to your already superb knowledge base.

You'll thrive here if...

If you can adapt from BAU to the ambiguous with ease, you'll do well here. Change is never easy, so bring your commitment, grit and growth mindset.

Because we run lean, you'll be expected to jump in and deliver across a variety of areas. Meaning, you'll be closer to the action and executive decisions that influence where we go next.

If you're someone that can hold their own, you'll find AMP quite liberating.

Why we think you'll love working at AMP

Doing what we've always done is not an option, so your clever ideas will get airtime here. You'll be encouraged to speak up and try new things. If they don't work, we move on - better for it.

We know there's no one way of doing things. So, you won't have to sacrifice who you are or how you work to fit in here. We're inclusive and flexible in many of the ways you'd expect. And in some of the ways you wouldn't. As long as your health and wellbeing come first - at home and at work.

In fact, most of what makes AMP such a welcoming, enjoyable place to work are our people. Wherever you go, you'll find moments to connect, feel valued and do meaningful work.

Whether it's through our first-class leaders who are invested in you and your success. Through year-round opportunities to volunteer, fundraise and give back to the community. Or in the everyday challenges you face as we work together to strengthen this great organisation. Challenges that will stretch you, amplify your potential and compound the impact you have.

We believe in the power of inclusion and diversity

We're dedicated to fostering inclusion, diversity, and a warm feeling of belonging at AMP. It sparks creativity, ignites innovation, and turns up the dial on the quality of our decisions and performance. This not only makes our workplace more engaged, but also leads to better connections with our customers.

We're your allies in the search for the perfect fit - when you apply, let us know how we can support you to put your best self forward during our selection process.

We're also committed to enhancing employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, so we enthusiastically encourage candidates from these backgrounds to apply and explore our Reconciliation Plan on our website here

Ready to create your tomorrow?

If you're someone who sees opportunity where others see challenge, come and work with us in smart, progressive ways as we transform an iconic Australian brand for the future. And, through a series of career-defining moments, create your own tomorrow.

Don't procrastinate! We review applications when we get them, and if we discover the ideal candidate, we may close the role earlier than the advertised close date.

Looking forward to meeting you.
