A secondee is a person who temporarily joins the team of an alternative organisation to lend capacity, provide expertise or gain experience, without becoming a permanent member of that organisation. Learn more about secondees.

A secondee lawyer is a lawyer who temporarily joins the in-house legal team of an organisation to help with a specific project, provide legal expertise or to offer additional capacity. Traditionally those in private practice would become secondee lawyers to gain commercial experience early in their careers, however legal secondments are now available to lawyers during any stage of their career to gain more flexibility and to broaden their skillsets. Learn more about becoming a secondee lawyer.

Typically, the employer remains responsible for compensating the seconded employee during the secondment. In the case of Plexus Engage, Plexus remains the employer of the secondee lawyer for the duration of the engagement. Learn more about legal secondments.
