In-House Counsel Recruiting Manager

United States [Remote]


About Us

Matchmakers, Not Headhunters

Whistler Partners is a boutique legal talent search firm focused on counseling the best and the brightest attorneys over the course of their careers with a particular emphasis on tech, startups, and media & entertainment. We believe that the right move comes from working closely with talent to curate their long-term career paths. When it comes to career advice, what matters is not the size of the agency but the strength of your individual recruiter. We readily admit that we are elite and only work with the best – after all, a little elitism is okay when it comes to your career.

Employers love us because we are picky about whom we represent, and attorneys love us because we get them their dream jobs.


About the Role

We’re looking for an experienced recruitment or project manager with killer instincts, a strong work ethic, and an entrepreneurial spirit. As our In-House Counsel Recruiting Manager, you’ll play a critical role in scaling and supporting the in-house side of our business, ensuring that our team is always delivering the A+ level of service that we’re known for.

You’ll also be a main point of contact for certain in-house clients and will be responsible for leading in-house counsel searches from start to finish. This is a full 360 recruiting role that would include client relationship management as well as sourcing and screening candidates, scheduling interviews with the client, and navigating the offer process.

This is a tremendous growth opportunity, with a potential path towards leadership and becoming a strategic head of Whistler’s in-house search business upon proven success.


Key Responsibilities

Maybe not all the below from day one, but we expect that in a short period of time, you will:

  • Provide operational project leadership, direction and insight to our team of recruiters and sourcers to ensure the effective execution of all in-house client engagements
  • Ensure that the performance of our recruiters and sourcers is optimized and meets key performance metrics
  • Oversee our bid/no-bid process, making strategic decisions about the clients that we take on
  • Manage the full-cycle recruitment process for multiple high-profile in-house clients
  • Lead hiring calibration calls and gather feedback from the clients and candidates and adjust sourcing parameters accordingly
  • Drive the offer process, acting as an advocate for clients in order to ensure an acceptance
  • Partner with clients to develop effective job descriptions, interview processes, and candidate assessments as needed
  • Track and analyze relevant metrics to provide insights to clients
  • Represent Whistler as a brand ambassador and evangelist
  • Establish consultative relationships with clients, developing a deep understanding of their strategic objectives and hiring needs
  • Lead and participate in cross-functional, ad-hoc projects as needed and assigned



About You
  • 5+ years of recruiting or project management experience.
  • Bonus points if that experience is BigLaw or startup adjacent.
  • Superior interpersonal sensitivity, judgment and professionalism.
  • Tech savvy. No luddites please.
  • Creative out-of-the box thinker. We’re trying to build the legal recruiting shop of the future, and we want your input.
  • BA/BS degree; JD would be a huge plus, but not required
