The Firm now seeks to hire a Manager, Professional Recruitment & Development who will be responsible for developing and managing the recruitment, professional development and mentoring programs, and administration of evaluation and processes. You will also be responsible for coordinating the summer and articling student recruitment process, as well as manage associate recruitment, onboarding and integration. Further, you will develop and lead ongoing educational and professional development programs for both students and associates. You will work with the Executive Committee, the Associate and Student Committees, as well as with the Firm’s Inclusion Committee on diversity and inclusion initiatives as they relate to recruitment, retention and advancement.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 5 years of experience as a legal professional gained from a leading law firm. Any prior experience supporting student and/or associate programs and recruitment is an asset. Excellent interpersonal, written and oral communication skills, attention to detail, and organization skills, are essential in this role.

Travel during peak recruitment periods is required for this position.
This is an excellent opportunity at a top tier litigation boutique for a lawyer who enjoys the law firm setting, but who prefers a non-practicing role.
