Our client, a leading law firm, is seeking a skilled professional to join them as a career advisor to serve in an advisory capacity to lawyers and alumni. This highly visible role is ideal for a lateral legal recruiter working within a law firm or a highly skilled legal search professional accustomed to providing continuous guidance and advice while building professional relationships with attorneys.

If you enjoy providing support throughout professional job searches, are skilled in interfacing with accomplished legal professionals, and have the utmost attention to detail and commitment to confidentiality and trust, this role would be an excellent next step.
