Providing legal services to Ballarat for over 90 years, BJT Legal are known for providing their clients with specialist advice to achieve the best possible outcomes. Knowing their clients, understanding their needs and working with their clients rather than for them is what underpins their success. Due to retirement, BJT Legal are searching for an experienced Business Manager to join their team and help them continue to build on the strong foundations of the role.


As their Business Manager, you’ll play a critical role in managing the day to day business operations while working closely with the Directors to provide advice, guidance and recommendations to support their strategic objectives.

Your key areas of responsibility will include:

  • Financial Management and Accounting (including trust accounting)
  • Coordinating the Human Resources and IT functions and being the key contact with external consultants
  • Marketing and Business Development
  • Governance

Success in the role will require a proven ability to enhance, develop and implement effective systems and procedures to support the operations of the business and mitigate risk. The accounting and finance management is a large portion of the role, hence a proven background in accounting and finance management is required. Ideally you will have tertiary qualifications in a Commerce / Management or related discipline.
