Job Description:

Position: Managing Director

Recognizing that recruiting is both an art and a science, Turner Brown prides itself on being a collaborative and directive partner with a focus on helping clients build self-awareness, leadership capacity, and organizational capacity to fuel business and drive growth objectives. We are committed partners who check ego at the door, listen intently and always give objective advice. We are deliberately small. Our Select Client List yields our short "off-limits" list. This allows us to recruit top prospects with much more freedom and fervor than larger firms. Our work is highly confidential and tailored to the unique needs of each engagement. Our clients trust us with their most sensitive matters.
We are deliberately strategic. We are not a transactional legal staffing agency. Instead, we engage with our clients to provide strategic and organizational advisory services aligned with their immediate needs and longer-term strategic objectives.

Reporting to the two principal partners, the incumbent will drive the Sourcing and Talent Acquisition operations of the firm by collaborating with the partners to ensure that ongoing recruiting projects are completed in a timely fashion.

The incumbent must possess a strong combination of functional expertise with deep experience navigating law firm websites, LinkedIn, formulating their own method for information and intelligence gathering, and to a lesser extent, utilizing SaaS platforms like Bullhorn and Leopard Solutions. We are looking for someone who is an excellent listener with a good sense of humor, personable demeanor, and ability to quickly connect with top level attorneys and executives. Equally important are internal drive, business acumen, solid operations experience, and overall good communication skills. We consider this to be a key position in which the incumbent will be mentored for his/her/their own professional development and entrusted to serve as an advisor to the Partners. The incumbent will help drive a performance-based culture that has the capabilities to change and adapt as the environment and competitive context changes.
