Initially faced with a paralegal going on medical leave, our client began with a need for a temporary employee but ended up needing a full-time permanent hire when the incumbent left the role. Our Interim Legal Talent group was able to fill both needs with highly qualified legal professionals in a timely manner.
One of our client's paralegals was going on a temporary medical leave. This individual serves as the first set of eyes reviewing most of the department's contracts. The paralegal is then responsible for contract dissemination and follow up. Our client was in need of an interim paralegal with a strong background in contracts administration who could assist the team for a period of two months.
Having worked with this client for three years now, our Interim Legal Talent consultants were in tune with our client's culture and requirements. We knew that this role would not be a typical contracts paralegal position, as our client needed someone with specific skills and personality for this role. Thus we conducted an extremely thorough requirement intake call with our client to assure that we focused our recruiting efforts on the right candidate profile.
We presented our client with three candidates, and they chose to hire one. However, a few months after the assignment, the incumbent paralegal left the company. While the role was vacant, work was accumulating and team members were being distracted from their immediate duties to assist with these contracts. Our client turned to us this time for a permanent solution.
Understanding the role and desired fit, we presented a solid slate of candidates, and our client hired one of them as a full-time, permanent employee.
